Hailed by critics as a “gifted young pianist of genuine substance” and “New Zealand’s most notable young emerging pianist,” Sylvia Jiang is a brilliant performer on the rise.     For her debut national tour as a soloist, she has built a programme around the theme of 'home' - both to her personally and as a broader concept.     This results in a unique blend of New Zealand music, American compositions marking her time at Juilliard, and works reflecting her family’s Chinese heritage.    New Zealand pianist Sylvia Jiang is a Juilliard graduate and holds an Artist Diploma from the Peabody Institute.     Her performances have been featured on BBC News, ABC Australia, and RNZ Concert, amongst others, and she has won numerous prizes at prestigious competitions including the Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition.     She currently studies with Richard Goode, Yong Hi Moon, and Rae de Lisle.     As a soloist, Sylvia has performed with the Royal Philharmonic, Auckland Philharmonia, Queensland Symphony, and Juilliard Chamber Orchestras, and has given recitals in Australasia, South Korea, Great Britain, and North America.    Programme    Gareth Farr | The Horizon from Owhiro Bay  Kenneth Young | A Time and Place There Was  George Walker | Piano Sonata No. 2, 1st Movement  Frederic Chopin | Sonata No. 2 in B-flat minor, op 35
