Sensitive Sophistication

»What we all have in common is our difference,« Bruce Liu likes to say. Born in Paris to Chinese parents, Bruce (Xiaoyu) Liu grew up in Montreal. He became known worldwide in 2021 when he won first prize at the 18th International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. He is now one of the most renowned pianists of his generation.
With Chopin, Liu can now also be experienced at the Vienna Konzerthaus. He has exactly the right timing that the music of this composer needs, and explores its scope with a sensitive sense of time. The pianist finds a good balance of slowing down, pausing and then pushing forward again. Liu always maintains a high degree of precision even at breakneck speed, but he never puts his technique alone in the foreground. He searches for nuances of expression, for the mood content of the pieces.
Liu's life has been steeped in cultural diversity, which has shaped his diverse attitude, personality and character. He draws from various sources of inspiration for his art: European sophistication, Chinese millennial tradition, North American dynamism and openness.
