Superb performance from a rising violin virtuoso

For 2023 Young Artist Audition winner Aaron Chan, playing the violin is a unique way of expression that creates something beautiful in the moment. And chamber music, in particular, is where he really excels. For his solo recital in Musicus Fest, Chan will perform an enchanting program to showcase his talent.

“Singing tone…bravura technique and poetic imagination”

A two-time winner of the prestigious Sylva Gelber Award, Chan had also won concerto competitions at the Cleveland Institute, McGill and Rice universities. He has also honed his skills by taking part in the Verbier Festival’s Soloist and Chamber Music Academy in Switzerland.

Chan will be accompanied by renowned Hong Kong pianist and International Chopin Piano Competition prizewinner Colleen Lee in romantic period works such as Grieg’s unmistakably Norwegian Violin Sonata No. 3 in C minor, a technical tour de force that is Jenő Hubay’s Carmen: Fantaisie Brillante; Beethoven’s ever optimistic and bright “Spring” violin sonata, and Clara Schumann’s Three Romances for Violin and Piano.
