Philippe Entremont, a renowned French classical pianist, will perform a piano recital for audiences in Beijing on Feb. 7 at the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA).
A total of four piano sonata works by Beethoven will be played during the upcoming solo performance.
Born in France in 1934, Entremont debuted at Carnegie Hall in New York at the age of 18 playing piano concertos of Jolivet and Liszt. In the following years of his career, he has also taken the baton and frequently conducted the Vienna Chamber Orchestra.
Entremont has also worked with several Chinese orchestras, and was one of the 10 pianists performing at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games in the "Piano Extravaganza of the Century."
Tickets for the show are now available on the official site of the NCPA (www.chncpa.org).
