Editorial Reviews

The piano transcription is one of the most striking and recognizable archetypes of late nineteenth century Romanticism. Mere mention of the genre elicits thoughts of a blond, caped Liszt traversing Europe in search of transcendental passion or the golden age Josef Lhevinne dazzling adoring fans with his seemingly effortless pianistic acrobatics. Despite reaching its apex in popularity toward the end of the nineteenth century, because of the intrinsic appeal of the genre, the public s musical love affair with the piano transcription did not begin to languish until the second half of the twentieth century. As such, and in homage to both the great transcription writers and players of a bygone era, this album explores the full gamut of transcriptions, ranging from the more esoteric Abram Chasins Orfeo of the midtwentieth century to that paradigmatic bread and butter of the repertoire, the Schulz-Evler Blue Danube Arabesques. Born in Shanghai, pianist Jue Wang has been concertizing regularly in China since the age of 10. The First Prize and Gold Medal winner of the XVIth Santander Paloma O Shea International Piano Competition in 2008, Mr. Wang is rapidly garnering attention as a gifted young performer who has already made successful debuts at New York s Carnegie Hall and London s Wigmore Hall, as well as many prestigious venues around the globe. Extensive concert and recital tours with more than 100 performances have been scheduled as part of the Santander award. Venues include Hannover NDR Hall in Germany, Bilbao Sociedad Filarmónica, Zaragoza Auditorio de Congresos in Spain, Salle Gaveau in Paris, Warsaw s Penderecki and Santander s International Festival, as well as venues in Switzerland, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, Panama, Bahamas and Mexico. Concerto performances are scheduled with the Oviedo Philharmonic Orchestra, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra of New Russia and the Spanish Radio and Television, Murcia Regional, Colombia National and National Dominican Republic Symphony Orchestras. In Spain, Mr. Wang presented his Madrid debut recital at the Auditorio Nacional de Música and his Valencia concert debut at the Palau des Arts, performing with the Palau des Arts Orchestra and Maestro Zubin Mehta. He has given recitals at the Úbeda International Festival, Santander Palacio de Festivales, Klavierfestival Ruhr in Germany, Sintra International Festival in Portugal, Festival de Radio France et Montpellier, the Córdoba Rafael Orozco International Piano Festival and performed the inaugural concerts at the Badajoz Festival Ibérico and at the Oviedo International Piano Festival Luis G. Iberni. Mr. Wang also won First Prize at the 51st International Piano Competition María Canals in Barcelona and Third Prize at the 2nd Richter International Piano Competition in Moscow, among many others. He received a Masters Degree in 2009 from the Shanghai Conservatory and an Artist Diploma in 2010 from the Manhattan School of Music.
