Since winning first prize in the prestigious Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition,Chien has concertized throughout the world, performing in solo and chamber recitals and as soloist with orchestras in countries on four continents, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony, St. Louis Symphony, Utah Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, Buffalo Philharmonic, New Zealand Symphony, American Symphony and Hong Kong Philharmonic.

Alec Chien opens the program with the Sonata in B flat major by Franz Schubert, a favorite composer of his late father, and will perform two Sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven so close to Chien, who performed all of the Beethoven sonatas in a series in recent years. As a special treat for ARCA’s appreciative audience, after the intermission Alec Chien will offer program commentary, establishing the affinity between Schubert and Beethoven, who was Schubert’s idol, as well as pointing out the differences between the two masters – prior to performing the two Beethoven sonatas on the second half.
