Notes & Reviews:

Chao Wang, who was awarded the "Grand Prix" at the 2013 European Piano Competition in France, presents his award-winning program on his debut CD. Liszt's monumental B-Minor Sonata is surely one of the most important piano sonatas not only in the so-called German romantic era but in the entire literature. The program also features three opera of Chopin: the Two Nocturnes op. 27, the Ballade No. 3 op. 47 and the Andante spianato et Grande Polonaise Brillante op. 22. Born in 1990, Chao Wang has lived in Europe since 2008.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Grand Prix winner at the European Piano Competition in France, Wang captures the structure of the magnificent Liszt Sonata. He has a fine sense of pacing and an ear for contrasts. His approach to Liszt and Chopin is riveting for its sensitivity and brilliance. The Nocturnes are finely detailed; the Andante Spianato has a wonderful cantabile sound, full of charm and character. Ballade 3 suggests that Wang could play an exquisite Barcarolle. A pianist to watch.
