Organized by Hong Kong Music Tutors Union and sponsored by Parsons Music Corporation, Yangtze River Piano Concert will be bringing esteemed Milanese pianist Vincenzo Balzani to Hong Kong in November, performing classic pieces by Debussy, Chopin, and Liszt.

P. Neglia' in Enna.
As a versatile concert artist, he has performed globally at the most prestigious theatres and festivals, and has often served as the judge for international competitions. Currently, he is the Professor of Piano at "Verdi" conservatory of music in Milan, and is the founder and artistic director of "Piano friends" association in Milan.
In remembrance of Debussy who passed away in 1918, Balzani will be performing his '12 preludes (II livre)'. He will also give an admiring interpretation to 'Ballade No.1 in g minor Op.23' and '12 etudes, Op.10' by Chopin, as well as Liszt's 'Polonaise E major', 'Sonetto 104 del Petrarca', and 'Rigoletto - paraphrase.'
