The young Chinese pianist Yutong Sun has been a winner at several prestigious international competitions, culminating in the first prize and Gold Medal at the 54th Jaén competition in 2012. For his Laureate Recital he has constructed a programme that displays his expressive maturity and technical accomplishments across the repertoire. Beethoven’s Sonata No 26, ‘Les adieux’ reveals its fabled cantabile sound world, whilst Lowell Liebermann’s 1989 Gargoyles, Op 29 is an approachable, sensuous and vital piece of contemporary writing. Mussorgsky’s vast Pictures at an Exhibition is one of the virtuosic peaks of nineteenth-century pianism.


Review By Robert Cummings,Classical Net,September 2013

Sun plays with a keen…grasp of the musical essence of the Beethoven Les adieux Sonata and the Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition.

Liebermann’s 1989 Gargoyles collection consists of four pieces that last about ten minutes. They are all brilliantly played by Sun. He not only captures fully the hypnotic character of #2 and 3 but manages to make the most of the exciting opening and closing works.

Juan de Dios Garcia Aguilera’s Flores para Julia (Flowers for Julia)…is a moody piece of substantial technical challenge…Sun performs the piece brilliantly, deftly wringing from the music all its quirky but naturally flowing character…
