l'église de la délivrance

October 25, 2016

CLASSIQUE. Restaurée à merveille, l'église dionysienne de la Délivrance méritait bien un concert pour en décupler la beauté. À l'initiative de Yann Vallé et de son association Nakiyava, qui ont créé, notamment, le festival Opus Pocus, et avec l'appui de la DAC-OI plus le concours du Conservatoire régional, deux soirées sont orchestrées entre samedi et dimanche pour célébrer la diversité des styles, des époques et des origines.....

听乐与闻道

December 30, 2015

2013年“施坦威青年音乐家”得主王聪瑀说:“人人都可以欣赏古典音乐。古典音乐并不古老,也不沉闷;问题是它的听众已日渐老去。”

我不懂音乐,但对于这位年仅23岁的本地音乐家的敏锐观察颇能认同。毕竟音乐是一种品味,必须培养。

味如果是客观存在,则品就是尝味的人主观的体验,其中当然包含对味的认识。同样的味,品评可以不同,这就是品味。说品味不难,但如何培养品味却极不容易.........

MUSIQUE – Congyu Wang, pianiste de charme

December 21, 2015

[Congyu Wang] Jeune soliste virtuose, récitaliste aguerri, spécialiste de la musique de chambre ; Congyu Wang a plusieurs cordes à son piano. Il a commencé à pratiquer son instrument dès l’âge de trois ans, fait ses études à l’Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris  et à la Schola Cantorum avant de se distinguer dans de nombreuses compétitions internationales, raflant les grands prix de Berlin, Paris et Bordeaux pour ne citer qu’eux. En 2013, il lui est conféré le titre de Young Steinway Artist par son mentor, Adam Gyorgy. Adepte de Francis Poulenc, un compositeur français du 20e siècle, il reprend certains de ses travaux pour son dernier album, « Charme »......

CD Review on Classical.Net

August 09, 2016

Pascal Rogé has long been prominent as an interpreter of French music, so I am assuming it is appropriate to compare his manner and style of playing to that of Congyu Wang. Their repertoire here overlaps. They both play the Movements perpétuelles and the Novelettes. Rogé plays only some of the Improvisations; Congyu Wang plays them all and, as far as I can tell, he offers the only recording of all fifteen of these on a single disc. Each of these pianists offers other short works in addition. All the pieces on Wang's CD are miniatures, most of them less than two minutes in duration. (Rogé's opening piece runs twenty-three minutes.) Among the other unique pieces, I find Congju Wang's final selection, Les Chemins de l'amour, exceptionally beautiful.

Paris-trained pianist Wang Congyu affected by attacks but still turns in charming recital

November 15, 2015

SINGAPORE - It was with a heavy heart that young Singaporean pianist Wang Congyu, who spent the best years of his musical education in Paris, began his recital of the music of French composer Francis Poulenc (1899-1963). A minute of silence was observed in memory of victims of Friday evening's terror attacks in Paris. With the audience at Alliance Francaise on Sunday still standing, he performed Arioso, Alfred Cortot's transcription of the slow movement from J.S. Bach's Keyboard Concerto (BWV.1056)......

CD Review by Straits Times Singapore

November 10, 2015

The piano music of Frenchman Francis Poulenc (1899-1963) comes from a bygone era, filled with the song-like charm of the Belle Epoque and influenced by popular trends of the day in Gay Paree. His persona was both rascal and saint, displaying seemingly contradictory facets of his life: a bon vivant with a deep inner spirituality informed by his Roman Catholic faith.....

在巴黎学音乐却没钱买钢琴

July 13, 2013

21岁的我国青年钢琴家王聪瑀,获得2013年施坦威青年音乐家的荣街。在法国留学期间,他曾在街头卖艺,连钢琴都买不起。他15岁去巴黎高等音乐师范学院求学的过程也极富戏剧性,似乎有 “离家出走” 的意味。2010年苏邦国际青少年钢琴比赛中,王聪瑀获第六名,这导致评审 Francols Weigel 怒而辞职,对他只得如此低名次表示抗议!王聪瑀已学成归国,正尽他的国民义务:服兵役............

Ardous trek scaling musical heights

April 18, 2013

Every teenager goes through a rebellious phase, but local pianist Wang Congyu took this to a whole new level when he ran away from home and flew to Paris to enrol in a prestigious music school. All without speaking a word of French or having much money on him after using up his savings for the plane ticket.

Wang, then 16, had snagged a scholarship to the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, but his parents objected to him accepting it because they felt he was too young to go alone to France.....

Singapore pianist gets Steinway recognition

April 16, 2013

When classical pianist Wang Congyu scored a scholarship to a prestigious conservatory of music in France, he knew he could not pass up on the opportunity.

His parents, however, were not as thrilled. They worried that their second child, then 16, would have a hard time living alone abroad at such a young age.

And, like many Singaporean parents, they did not view the arts as a sustainable career choice, said Wang, now 21, dur-ing an interview at the Steinway Gallery Singapore at Palais Ren-naisance yesterday....

Wang Congyu: le talent, la persévérance et la foi

October 07, 2012

La vie de Wang Congyu, Singapourien de naissance, pianiste formé à Paris, est une partition faite de quelques déboires, beaucoup d’espoir et de nombreuses victoires.

À 17 ans, contre la volonté de ses parents, Congyu décide de poursuivre des études de musique à Paris. Initié au piano des l’âge de 3 ans, il brûle alors d’une incandescente passion pour cet instrument, voue quasiment un culte à l’école française élevée à l’universalité et veut devenir concertiste....
