Claire Huangci releases new album with conductor Shiyeon Sung and the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra

Claire Huangci has recorded piano concertos by Chopin and Paderewski for Berlin Classics with the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie under the trailblazing woman conductor Shiyeon Sung. It is her seventh CD production: ” Embarking on the adventure of my first concerto album was an incredible thrill that made me think back to my earliest concerts and my journey through the world of music. I looked at the composers which made indelible first impressions on me and decided on two concertos which I believe enhance one another when played side by side.”

With this recording, she proves once more that her technical perfection and breathtaking virtuosity are not an end in themselves: “It’s my intention to make music that stays in one’s memory, not because I had quick fingers but because it’s so moving.”

Perhaps it is the cooperation between three women – the recording also involved the internationally experienced Nora Brandenburg as sound engineer – with their joint insights into the inner workings and (possibly previously undiscovered?) potential and nuances in the two pieces that go to make this new CD incontestably an enrichment of the discography.
