Sung Chang - Home

"Sung Chang is a pianist of enormous and special gifts: his command of the instrument is exceptional, and his range of sound and stylistic flexibility are also highly unusual. He has all the makings of an important and individual artist: a poetic imagination, superb technical skills, and, most importantly, a deep emotional connection to whatever music he plays." Jeffrey Kahane
