Leading by example on the keys

From Upbeat, 1:00 pm on 6 September 2017

By day Jian Liu is a busy teacher at the New Zealand School of Music, but by night he’s busy preparing for a packed schedule. The pianist is performing the Grieg Piano Concerto with the Orchestra Wellington and then heads off to China and the United States. He talks about keeping the balance between teaching and performing right and his ideas on playing Grieg for the first time.
