Winner of the Governors’ Recital Prize,
Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, 2022
Singaporean pianist Jia Ning Ng has recently graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where, in addition to gaining B.Mus., M.Mus. and Artist Diploma, she won many prestigious awards. In April 2022, she made her debut with the RSNO, for which she was awarded First Prize in the RCS Concerto Competition. Jia Ning is also an active chamber musician, being particularly drawn to Lieder, and has also collaborated with the Resol String Quartet (who make a welcome return visit to Peebles in January 2024).
With a particular affinity for Schubert, it is natural that Jia Ning should choose, as the climax of her recital, his final instrumental work, the great Sonata in B flat, D.960, described by the New Yorker as ‘a work of vast dimensions and vertiginous depths’.
Jia Ning opens her recital with Beethoven’s dramatic ‘Tempest’ Sonata, which is followed by a collection of miniatures brought together by Schumann as his ‘Bunte Blätter’ (literally ‘coloured leaves’) which ranges from joyful to heartbreaking, jaunty to stormy.
“…an admirable blend of sensitivity and musical understanding.” (Straits Times)
