Regularly praised for the poetic sensitivity and intimacy of playing, Sa Chen has been described by the legendary Paul Badura Skoda as a pianist "like an angel from heaven". She was the youngest contestant at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 1996, and also participated at the Chopin Piano Competition (2000) and 12th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. She is the only pianist in history to be a prize winner in all of three top international piano competitions.
At the 26th SIPF, Sa Chen will perform works by Franck, Chopin, Messiaen and Debussy, a perfect showcase of her widely acclaimed pianistic colours and poetic subtlety.
