    Synopsis:
    This animated film concert with live solo piano created by Oscar award-winning creators Break Thru Films introduces the music of Chopin with a set of unique animations. The main feature, Magic Piano (30 minutes) tells the story of Anna and Chip-Chip’s adventure of discovery aboard a magic, flying piano. This is presented alongside The Chopin Shorts; collections of 2-3 minute films each set to Chopin études.
     
    Completing almost a full overview of these piano works, these colourful, magical films are delighting young audiences worldwide. The Southbank Centre hosted the UK & European premiere in London in February 2013; it has also been performed at venues including Aldeburgh Snape Proms, Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, Melbourne Recital Centre, Xinghai Concert Hall, Taipei National Concert Hall and notably Hong Kong Arts Festival for five sell-out performances for the Asian premiere in March 2014.
     
    Derek Wang
    Seventeen-year-old pianist Derek Wang has a thirst for beautiful music that he is driven to share, in the belief that art unites us in a rewarding search for sincerity in our contemporary world. Derek studies piano with Yoheved Kaplinsky and composition with Manuel Sosa in the Juilliard Pre-College Division. He appeared on a national broadcast of NPR’s From the Top in 2014 and was recently named a 2016 National YoungArts Foundation Finalist. He received the Rosalyn Tureck Prize at the Third International Rosalyn Tureck Bach Competition in 2013. In 2012, Mr. Wang collaborated with Academy Award-winning producer Hugh Welchman to perform the etudes of Chopin as a live complement to screenings of the animated film Magic Piano, at its premiere for the New York International Children’s Film Festival at Lincoln Center and in Guangzhou, China. Working with From the Top and the Lang Lang International Music Foundation, Mr. Wang supports ongoing efforts in music outreach and education, having led workshops for public school students of all ages in Boston, Chicago, New York, and Tacoma, Wash., as well as at his own high school in Weston, Mass. Derek also enjoys writing and poetry and is an avid fan of baseball and Formula 1.
