Redmond Community Concert Association is pleased to welcome pianist Tien Hsieh for two performances at Ridgeview High School’s Performing Arts Theatre in Redmond on Sunday, February 11. Hsieh is a gifted pianist whose personality radiates from the stage. Artistry, professionalism, passionate musicality and gusto are only a few of the terms used to describe her concerts. She will be performing a classical program of selected works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Frederic Chopin, Franz Schubert, Franz Liszt and more. Audiences will also enjoy the rare privilege of watching her hands on the keyboard via a large electronic media screen behind her.
Hsieh has performed extensively as a recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States. Her career has also taken her to many major European cities, including an all-Liszt program at the Liszt Museum in Budapest as winner of the Los Angeles International Liszt Competition. Hsieh’s education included scholarships to the Manhattan School of Music, the University of Houston and the St. Louis Conservatory of Music where she received numerous awards and grants.
Working with younger, aspiring students at her private studio in California, Hsieh is a dedicated proponent of music education. She was born in Taiwan of Chinese parents and immigrated to the United States when she was nine years old. As founding artistic director, curator and co-founder of the Classical Masters Music Festival, she continues her commitment to promote classical music in her hometown of Folsom, California.
