23 Jun The Kelly Tchen Piano Challenge
The Kelly Tchen Piano Challenge is an annual internal musical competition at Le Rosey. Each musician is required to play approximately eight minutes of music from memory and every year, the repertoire becomes increasingly challenging as the standards continue to rise. From class 5 to class 1, the level of playing was outstanding. The jury, comprised of two external specialists, were extremely impressed by the expertise and musicianship displayed by our pianists; their feedback after the competition was enlightening and enriching for all who attended the competition. This year’s winner, a Rosean from class 4, performed a perfect version of Soler’s Sonata in C# minor and a magical interpretation of Debussy’s Isle Joyeuse.
