Piano Music Week set tunes for summer fun in Guangzhou

A piano music week will be held at Xinghai Concert Hall from August 5 to 7. Outstanding young pianists will bring wonderful music pieces to the audience.

Two concerts are the highlights of the music week. On August 6, pianist An Tianxu will perform a full set of Russian repertoire such as Prokofiev's Piano Sonata No. 6 to pay tribute to Russian composer Scriabin.

An is a rising star in the piano world. At the 2019 Tchaikovsky International Piano Music Competition, he came in fourth place and won a special prize for "courage and restraint", which was the highest award for a Chinese pianist at that contest in 18 years.

Abu is the first Chinese jazz pianist and composer to stand out in the global jazz community. The famous composer and pianist Nikolai Kapustin cited him as "one of the most promising young pianists". On August 7, he will make his debut at Xinghai Concert Hall. Through Kapustin and Abu's original piano pieces, this enchanting musical journey invites the audience to enjoy modern-style music presented by Abu's unique interpretations.
