For Season 1’s Finale, the  U.P. College of Music proudly presents “CHOPIN: BEFORE and BEYOND” A Solo Concert Featuring Albert Tiu. Described by American Record Guide as “an artist of uncommon abilities”, the Filipino pianist is also known for his innovative programming and eclectic repertoire. His recitals, billed “The Classical Elements” (Earth, Air, Water and Fire), “Chopin without Chopin” (music by Godowsky, Busoni and Rachmaninov influenced by Chopin), and “Bee Flat” (the two Sonatas in B-flat by Beethoven) are just a few examples of his inventive recital programs. His 2010 recording  “Nocturnal Fantasies”, featuring Chopin and Skyrabin was hailed by Gramophone for “performances where heart and mind unite in a deeply affecting union”.
