MPRS presents DANG THAI SON - A Romantic Journey
The Master Piano Recital Series closes its 2016/17 season with a living piano legend.
Hailed “a genuine musician” by Isaac Stern, Vietnamese pianist Dang Thai Son first earned international fame after winning First Prize at the tenth International Chopin Competition in 1980. Since then, he has played in over forty countries, in venues including the Lincoln Center in New York City, Salle Pleyel in Paris, the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Sydney Opera House and Tokyo’s Suntory Hall. He has performed with orchestras including the St. Petersburg, BBC, and Moscow Philharmonic Orchestras, the Orchestres Symphoniques de Montreal and Paris, the Vienna, Zurich and Royal Swedish Chamber Orchestras, and the Virtuosi of Moscow, appearing alongside conductors including Neville Marriner and Pinchas Zukerman. He has collaborated with musical luminaries including Yo Yo Ma, Seiji Ozawa, Kathleen Battle, Mstislav Rostropovich, Murray Perahia, and Vladimir Ashkenazy, and recorded prolifically for Deutsche Grammophon, CBS Sony, Analekta and Victor JVC.
