The Vancouver Recital Society has posted a YouTube video of a recital by 23-year-old Vancouver pianist Tristan Teo, which was recorded at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts last October. The video includes an interview with Teo by VRS artistic director Leila Getz.
Teo is shown performing works by Schumann-Liszt (Widmung), Nikolai Kapustin (Variations Op. 41), and Mussorgsky (Pictures at an Exhibition). You can read Donald Gíslason's program notes here.
"Tristan Teo was recently named one of Canada’s 'hot classical musicians under 30' by CBC Music," reads the info on the society's YouTube channel. "He made his orchestral debut with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and has since performed solo and with orchestras in Canada, the United States, and Europe.
"As a performer with a passion for teaching, Tristan has strongly advocated for bringing music education from the studio to the concert hall, impressing audiences with the honesty and sincerity of his performances. Tristan is currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in the C.V. Starr Doctoral Fellows Program at The Juilliard School."
