Notes & Reviews:

Sean Chen's debut on Steinway & Sons. Sean was the winner of the 2013 American Pianists Association's DeHaan Classical Fellowship, one of the most lucrative and significant prizes available to an American pianist. Also in 2013, Sean Chen won Third Prize, the Crystal Award, at the 14th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the first American to reach the finals since 1997.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Chen's expressive range is more apparent here. He delivers the intricate Ravel 'Menuet sur le nom d'Haydn' with painstaking care. In his own arrangement of La Valse, Chen appropriately evokes an orchestral sound. Solid musical skills and imaginative programming produce a persuasive recording.
