Percius signs pianist Chiyan Wong
24 August 2016
Born in Hong Kong but based in the UK, Chiyan made his debut playing Prokofiev Piano Concerto No.2 with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra in April 2016. Chiyan is a broad and thoughtful musician with a special interest in the music of Franz Liszt and has expanded his studies in various areas including improvisation with the French-Lebanese organist, Naji Hakim. Chiyan is an honours graduate of the Royal Academy of Music. He has been astonishing audiences with the sincerity and sheer authority of his playing; Linn Records have today announced that Chiyan will release his debut recording in spring 2017, Liszt Transfigured: Operatic fantasies for piano, featuring Franz Liszt operatic transcriptions completed and edited by Chiyan.
"Linn has a history of nurturing young talent and we’re excited to have Chiyan be a part of that. He’ll be joining an accomplished stable of pianists." Kim Campbell, Linn Records
"A simply astonishing performer, the team are delighted to have the opportunity of working with Chiyan." Libby Percival
