About the Show
Inaugurating the Grunin Center’s Friday Matinee Young Artist Recital Series, is 16 year-old Egg Harbor Township pianist Hans-Derek Yu. Though still in his teens, Mr. Yu has competed nationally and internationally, winning numerous solo piano and concerto competitions. Most recently, he advanced to semi-finalist in the Hilton Head International Piano Competition and placed 2nd in the MTNA National finals in Baltimore.
Performing a program ranging from the warmth and majestic beauty of Beethoven’s Sonata Op. 110 to the thunderous power of Rachmanioff’s prelude Op. 23 No. 2, from the poetry of Chopin’s evocative masterpiece, the Ballade in f minor, to the tumultuous energy of Scriabin’s 4th Sonata, don’t miss the opportunity to hear this extraordinary young man.
This performance will be free of charge and take place in Grunin A203 so as to utilize the 9½ foot Bosendorfer Imperial Grand Piano generously on loan to Ocean County College by Mr. Richard Askoff. Please call 732-255-0500 to reserve seats, as they are limited.
