How did you spend your Valentine's Day?



How did you spend your Valentine's Day? I was very honored to spend the evening with a few hundred music lovers at the Bowers Museum - One of the Top Ten museums in the US according to National Geographic.
I gave a short speech before the performance.
Recently a powerful earthquake struck southern Taiwan. The area that's most damaged is Yunkan District of Tainan City. Many victims were buried under the collapsed buildings. The death toll has reached more than 100 people. And many homes are destroyed. Yunkan is where I was born and grew up, until the age of 13, when I left Taiwan to go to Vienna to study music. The earthquake victims and their families are my hometown people. Next I would like to play the pieces for them. It is Scriabin's prelude and Nocturne for Left Hand. Scriabin suffered from depression all his life, but he didn't give up and still wrote great music. I choose to play Scriabin's work for my hometown people, to encourage them not to give up, and my heart prays for them. I hope you will enjoy this piece, and will pray for the earthquake victims also.

Der taiwanischen Starpianist Rueibin Chen studierte bereits mit 13 Jahren am Konservatorium Wien Musik und lernte später vom russischen Pianisten Lazar Berman. Heute spielt Herr Chen auf der ganzen Welt Klavierkonzerte. Mittlerweile auch mit seinem eigenen Ensemble mit chinesischen Instrumenten. Wir sprachen mit Herrn Chen über sein Leben und seine Musik.

Anmerkung: Herr Chen hat uns auf einen Versprecher bei Minute 2:11 hingewiesen: Der Schulkollege Rachmaninoffs war Lazar Bermans Lehrer, nicht Lazar Berman selbst.

I had the privilege to visit with the Schoenberg family.





I had the privilege to visit with the Schoenberg family. The chair is the one Schoenberg sat to teach his students and it was incredible to see the "vault" with all the scores and manuscripts.
