“Chen shaped his phrases masterfully and displayed technical prowess as well as an ear for lyricism. He’s not only an artist with flair, but he also knows how to collaborate with an orchestra, and rarely took his eyes off of Slatkin. His phrasing breathed, and he also knew where to build momentum.”
“Sean Chen continued his exceptional ability to connect with an audience combined with an easy virtuosity to bring the house down with Rach 3.”
The Huffington Post
“Los Angeles native Sean Chen has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities and dazzling technical prowess.”
