La Presse

 

Preludes by Frédéric Chopin and John Burge

 

Philip Chiu is acclaimed for his brilliant pianism, sensitive listening, and a stage presence that demonstrates openness, authenticity, and connection with audiences. Inaugural winner of the Mécénat Musica Prix Goyer, Mr. Chiu has become one of Canada’s leading musicians through his infectious love of music and his passion for creation and communication.  Philip will perform a selection of preludes by Frédéric Chopin and John Burge. Composed from 2011 to 2015 and fashioned after Chopin's example, each of Burge's preludes has its own distinct character which Chiu unveils with astonishing interpretive and technical brilliance alternating with the Preludes of Chopin.
