World renowned pianist Kristian Chong is performing once again for the second concert of 'Kristian Chong and Friends' at the Melbourne Recital Centre.
...
Australian-born and raised Chong, who has performed on a global scale in countries such as UK, USA, Taiwan and Africa, says La Foila is played "with a personal take" but "also respecting the composer". Mr Chong also says that he is happy to be playing the piece in Melbourne.
"The Melbourne Recital Centre is a new building that was put up around seven or eight years ago and has one of the best acoustics in the world," he said.
Mr Chong, who currently teaches piano and chamber music at the University of Melbourne, said he was inspired by "communicating a story" to the audience and performing the well-written pieces to the best of his ability.
"Music is like a movie or a film, or a story your grandmother tells you. It's got to have a logical start, a drama," he said.

I spoke to cellist Li-Wei Qin (Young Performer of the Year, 1993) whose past season included appearances with the North German Radio Symphony Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and Shanghai Symphony Orchestra. Li-Wei, who is now based in Singapore, counsels his students carefully on this: ‘Players should enter only if it is at the right point in their own progress, as the long lead-up period choosing, preparing and focusing intensively on the most suitable repertoire is one of the major benefits of taking part in any competition.’ Kristian Chong (finalist 2001 and recent YPA judge) is a Melbourne-based pianist and teacher at the University of Melbourne. He echoed Li-Wei’s advice. The issue of timing is crucial as ‘the main danger is that young performers who aren’t quite fully ready enter the competition and are disillusioned by the process....Some really promising and talented players that enter competitions are knocked out in earlier rounds - these musicians can experience negative connotations in relation to this.’

Not surprisingly, the past winners and finalists I spoke to all thought that they entered YPA at opportune times for them as individuals. Kristian stated that YPA ‘was an important step in my musical development… it gave me much confidence and reassurance in my own musical abilities, at a time when many insecurities plagued my own musical development.’ For Sydney-based percussionist Claire Edwardes (Young Performer of the Year, 1999) the competition provided an even broader sense of worth and purpose at a critical time for her.
