Awarded the third prize, Sa Chen became the first recipient of the Crystal Award at the Twelfth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. Born into a musical family in Chongqing, China, Sa Chen is considered, along with Lang Lang and Yundi Li, as one of today's most important Chinese pianists. Her debut disc Chopin Impressions was released in 2003 on the JVC label. Her prize-winning performances of Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit and Liszt's Spanish Rhapsody at the 2005 Cliburn Competition are among the works included on a Harmonia Mundi disk. Ms. Chen will appear in the November 2008 issue of Gramophone.
