Performing annually at Tippet Rise since the 2016 inaugural season, our beloved friend Jenny Chen returns to the art center this year after making her Carnegie Hall debut. Tonight, she will play an ambitious selection of pieces by Chopin as well as Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 28 in A Major, Opus 101, a turning point to the composer’s late style.
