About
Soirée of Chopin’s best-loved classics

A precocious piano prodigy, Chinese pianist Niu Niu (born Shengliang Zhang) made history as the youngest student admitted to the Shanghai Conservatory and the youngest pianist signed by the EMI Classics at the age of 10.

Having released his solo album of Chopin’s Etudes at a tender age, Niu Niu has been invited to perform and record with the  Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, home to “the poet of the piano”. Audience familiar with the hugely popular Japanese anime series Piano no Mori would have had a glimpse of the young star’s refined renditions of Chopin.

In an all-Chopin recital, Niu Niu presents classics including the Barcarolle and the Polonaise in A-flat, and the highly dramatic Second Piano Sonata. Audience will also hear the authentic chamber version of Chopin’s First Piano Concerto, jointly presented by the promising star, local musicians of the Romer String Quartet and double bass player Santiago Costa Martínez.
