Paul Ye’s piano recital navigates between the classical vigour of Beethoven and Chopin’s pieces, and the evocative sounds of twentieth-century Chinese piano masterpieces in a harmonious dialogue between East and West, demonstrating the universal language of music.

From the captivating realm of Beethoven’s ‘Appassionata,’ a masterpiece hailed as one of his greatest and most technically challenging piano sonatas, to the timeless works of Chopin, where Paul Ye will showcase his versatility, setting the stage for an exploration of Chopin’s varied and profound musical expressions.

In this program, Paul Ye presents distinguished Chinese compositions such as “Birds Paying Homage to the Phoenix,” “Ode to the Yellow River,” and “My Motherland,” where the resonance of traditional melodies weaves through the notes.
