FOR THE YOUNG ARTIST

Michael Glenn Williams
Sean Chen 

                                                


 

FOR THE YOUNG ARTIST, Michael Glenn Williams’ debut on Navona Records, pursues the tradition of hearing a composer’s works performed by a world-class musician.

Sean Chen, a rising star pianist who had his 2013 break through winning the prestigious American Pianists Association DeHaan Classical Fellow Award and the Crystal Award at the Van Cliburn Piano Competition, performs the works of Williams.
Williams describes the pieces on the album as “cinematic, evoking strong characters, scenes and visual images. Sean’s performance expresses the youthful energy, charm and freshness of the works.” Ranging from a tender and romantic lullaby, to up-tempo waltzes and sounds that would suggest a full brass band, Sean Chen performs the works in a way that deftly expresses the relationship between composer and performer.
