Two magnificent concerts performed on an instrument that’s second to none: William Youn opted for a C. Bechstein D 282 concert grand piano for his show as a trio with Sabine Meyer and Nils Mönkemeyer at the Konzerthaus in Berlin. One week later, Haiou Zhang wowed the audience with a performance at the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg – once again on a C. Bechstein D 282.
Haiou Zhang, a twenty-five-year-old Chinese pianist, thrills audiences on the world’s major stages. He recently performed on a C. Bechstein D 282 at the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, where he played Franz Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by Xin Tan. Haiou Zhang also recorded Liszt’s complete sonatas (again on a C. Bechstein grand) for a CD released on the label Hänssler Classic, which was a resounding success all over the world. He will be giving another concert at the Laeiszhalle on 13 November before embarking on a tour of China in December and January. Upon returning to Europe, he will be performing at the Konzerthaus in Berlin on 21 April 2017 as part of the new series of C. Bechstein piano recitals.
