Is it Liszt Week?

I know SiFi just performed a Liszt concert...

And today, I saw one at the Steinway Gallery. The program was:

CHING-YUN HU IN CONCERT

Winner of the 2008 Rubinstein Piano Competition, pianist Ching-Yun Hu returns after her sold out Piano Lovers debut last season.

PROGRAM:

LISZT Fountains of the Villa d’Este
SCHUMANN/LISZT “Widmung”
SCHUBERT/LISZT
“Ave Maria”
“Ständchen von Shakespeare”
Serenade
“Auf dem Wasser zu Singen”
“Erlkonig”
LISZT
Three Concert Études
Spanish Rhapsody

She was quite good, and the venue was perfect - so small, intimate, in the back of the Steinway showroom.

In the interview after she won the Rubinstein Piano Competition, she said to the effect that when you think you played well in a competition, you went nowhere, and when you were not at all sure you played well, you found out you won (... and she covered her mouth at this point, cute ... :-).

Juja Wang said the same thing, oftentimes she would get the biggest applause when she felt not so insecure about the piece.

Ah si hoy know if her? Is she well known? I hadn’t heard of her, but went because it was right down the street. She played on a Steinway D in a room that seats about 100, so it was rather intimate. I was not familiar with most of the pieces, but it was nice. She plays with a lot of energy.
