Notes & Reviews:

"Melvin Chen was born in Tennessee. He holds a doctorate in chemistry from Harvard and a double master's degree from the Juilliard School in both piano and violin. If this were not impressive enough, Chen can boast of studies with Boris Berman and Ida Kavafian. His Diabelli is intellectual, smart, and pretty darn impressive. He contrasts the individual variations very well and is more than willing to play slowly, softly, and expressively, with some beautifully executed ritardandos and rubato." -Becker, ARG
