Sa Chen, the well-known Chinese pianist, will be giving 2 concerts during April. The first will be on Tuesday April 12, 2016 and Sa will be playing Debussy’s Préludes Books 1 and 2 (featuring all 24 préludes). On Wednesday April 13 Sa will play selections from Chopin Mazurkas followed by Liszt’s Sonata in B Minor.

Sa Chen was born in Chongquin and grew up in an artistic family. Her mother was a ballet dancer and her father a French horn player. She started her musical career by initially learning the violin (aged 6) and then the piano when she was 9. She first came to international fame when she was the youngest contestant (aged 16) at the Leeds International Piano Competition – she won the 4th. prize. A year later she received a full scholarship to study at the Guildhall School with Prof. Joan Havill. In 2005 Sa received the Crystal Award at the Van Cliburn competition.
