Following last year's success in Wellington, Ten + One Childhood Memories Chinese piano concert will have its debut in Palmerston North. This concert features Jian Liu and 10 of his students who will be presenting traditional Chinese music, folksong and children's songs rescored for piano, as well as original piano works by acclaimed Chinese composers Tan Dun, Gao Ping and Shen Nalin. The melodies are evocative of childhood and home, some distant, some close, but always vividly remembered. An impeccable fingerspitzengefuhl to say the least, Jian Liu's world-class talent combined with young up and coming piano artists makes this event a real must-see (and must-hear!).

Jian Liu's piano career started at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing at the age of 12. He won several prestigious prizes and competitions and moved to the USA to continue his music career. He is currently Head of Piano Studies at the NZ School of Music and is finishing his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the Yale School of Music.

This concert is jointly organised by Manawatu Chinese Community Trust and Confucius Institute at Victoria University of Wellington and has been made possible with the kind support of Creative Communities Scheme.
