PentaTone is proud to present their first release featuring the spectacular new pianist Sa Chen. Already a star in her native China, Sa Chen has won the Leeds Piano Competition (1994) The Chopin Piano Competiton (1996) and the Van Cliburn in 2005.

This SACD comes packaged with a DVD featuring Sa Chen interviewed by James Jolly (Editor in Chief of Gramophone) and footage from the recording sessions showing one complete movement from each concerto. Sa Chen will be featured as “One To Watch” (special page in Gramophone, November issue) and also BBC Music Magazine. We are all aware that Deutsche Gramophone is releasing an album comprising exactly the same works performed by Lang Lang. Actually it is an interesting phenomenon that two young Chinese artists record the same works and we hope and expect that the media will compare both albums.
