Gradus ad Parnassum Dr. Leung Hio Ming Solo Piano Recital
When Chopin published his two sets of Piano Etudes, Op. 10 and Op. 25, piano playing has entered into a brand new era. Never before could anyone image the playing technique could be this innovative, and never after is there any pianist-composer who can escape his influence. Above all, Chopin has transformed sheer piano exercises into forms of art at the highest level. Each etude no only posts concentrated technical challenges, but also is a poem of color, mood, emotion, drama, story, ecstasy, etc. Both these two sets are the testaments for every pianist. Therefore, seldom are both sets performed in a same concert. After the success of Summit of Romantic Pianism, and Gateway to the Romantic—Beethoven the Giant piano recitals, Dr. Leung Hio Ming once again takes up the challenge. This is really a mission of Gradus ad Pamassum -- Climbing the Steps of Mount Pamassum.
