DANG THAI SON

Called “a genuine musician,” by Isaac Stern, Dang Thai Son is one of the great outstanding musicians of our time. Since winning the Chopin Competition, his international career has taken him to more than 40 countries and into such renowned concert halls as Lincoln Center (New York), Barbican Center (London), Salle Pleyel (Paris), Herculessaal (Munich), Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), Opera House (Sydney), and Suntory Hall (Tokyo). On his program is Schubert Sonata in C Major D.840 as well as piano works by Chopin.

“A genuine musician”-Isaac Stern

 “A fully realized and exciting performance”-The New York Times

 “A lightful interpretation”-Le Monde de la Musique

 “Maitre des equilibre … Du grand art”-Diapason

 “Flawless Chopin of Dang Thai Son”-La Presse

“It was easy to understand why Dang, 36 years after his first prize in the Chopin Competition, remains such a favorite in Poland. He found inner lines and undercurrents in the great C minor Nocturne (Op. 48 No. 1) that I don’t think I’ve ever heard another pianist touch upon. His control and unfaltering rhythm enabled him to sing out the melodic content in a manner that was a lesson for any pianist.” –International Piano Magazine, September/October 2016

“the pianist takes us through various expressive categories … His pianistic sound is based on warm singing lines, but he never stresses the bel canto inheritance at the expense of deeper musical substance. This recital is not just well-groomed Chopin playing, [it] also demonstrates the pianist’s individuality.” –BBC Music Magazine, June 2011

“Dang Thai Son is flawless as a pianist, as a musician and as an interpreter.” –La Press, Claude Gingras, Canada, March 2010.

“Dang Thai Son is undeniably the most impressive pianist at the Gala Concert on Chopin’s 200th Birthday” –Gazeta Wyborcza, Poland, March 2010.
