Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) presents

Bruce Liu Performs Chopin’s Second Concerto

Montrealer Bruce Liu, winner of the prestigious 2021 Chopin Piano Competition and of the 2012 OSM Competition, performs Chopin’s Concerto no. 2 with the Orchestra under the baton of Finnish-Ukrainian conductor Dalia Stasevska. The Maestra will also make the Maison symphonique resonate with Nordic sounds in a performance of Sibelius’ mysterious Symphony no. 6, whose apparent tranquility conceals uncommon inner strength.

“You don’t always know where Bruce Liu is taking you, but you feel compelled to follow him“ ResMusica

“What we all have in common is our difference”, the young pianist likes to say. Born in Paris to Chinese parents, Bruce Liu grew up in Montreal. His life has been steeped in cultural diversity, which has shaped his differences in attitude, personality and character. He draws on various sources of inspiration for his art: European refinement, Chinese long tradition, North American dynamism and openness. Following his artist path with optimism and a smile, his teachers include Richard Raymond and Dang Thai Son.
