Faculty Recital: Meng-Chieh Liu

| New England Conservatory: Jordan Hall

NEC piano faculty performs works by Schumann, Messiaen and Scriabin.

A recipient of the 2002 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Meng-Chieh Liu first made headlines in 1993 as a 21-year-old student at the Curtis Institute of Music, when he substituted for André Watts at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia with three hours' notice. The concert earned high acclaim from critics and audience alike and was followed by a number of widely praised performances, including a recital at the Kennedy Center and a concert on the Philadelphia All-Star Series.

A dedicated chamber musician, as well as a solo artist, Liu has collaborated with musicians in North America, Europe, and Asia, in addition to working with artists in other disciplines, including dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and his White Oak Dance Project. Liu received the 2002 Philadelphia Musical Fund Society Career Advancement Award and first prizes in the Stravinsky, Asia Pacific Piano, and Mieczyslaw Munz competitions.
