 Albert Wong Soloist

 Albert Wong, born on January 1, 1990, was the first baby boy born in Boston that year. He has resided in Carrollton, Texas (a suburb of Dallas) since September 1990. Even though he could sing many entire songs before he could speak complete sentences, his musical interest was not revealed until he saw and heard the piano at age three and a half. By the time he was four he enjoyed the instrument so much that he announced to everyone that he wanted to be a concert pianist. He won the grand prize of the North Texas Piano Competition at age five.

Today, at age eleven, Albert is a seasoned performer. He gave his first solo recital at age six. Since then, he has played numerous solo recitals and participated in chamber and orchestral concerts across the country. He has appeared on the local TV shows, Good Morning Texas and Positively Texas, and has also been spotlighted in feature articles in Texas Monthly and The Dallas Morning News. Following the release of his debut Bach disc, Fanfare magazine ran a lengthy feature article in its Jan./Feb. 2001 issue entitled, ’Albert Wong: A Wise Old Soul - at Ten!’ He made his orchestral debut in 1997 (at the age of seven), playing the Bach’s Concerto in F minor shortly after he won First Prize in the Dallas Symphonic Piano Concerto Competition. He has appeared with the Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth for three consecutive seasons. In the summer of 1999, he was asked to assist the only full-time North Texas classical radio station, WRR-FM, to promote its Smart Babies CD. In the past concert season, Albert has performed seven solo piano recitals around the country. In May of 2000 he received the Bayard H. Friedman ’Outstanding Student Award in the Performing Arts’ from the Board of the Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth.
Piano is not his only love and is not the only thing in which he excels. He also studies the violin. Besides music, he enjoys reading, biking, computer games, attending concerts - and thinking! He also shows talent and interest in math, science, literature and philosophy.
Five Clementi piano sonatas elegantly performed by 11-year-old Albert Wong. As a follow-up to his highly acclaimed debut CD last year of Bach?s Well-Tempered Clavier Book II, 11-year-old pianist Albert Wong has chosen to record five of Muzio Clementi’s greatest piano sonatas (the Sonata in B minor Op. 40, No. 2; Sonata D Major Op. 40, No. 3; Sonata C Major Op. 37, No. 1; Sonata B-flat Major Op. 24, No. 2 and Sonata A Major Op. 33, No. 1). The performances by this extremely talented piano prodigy are both elegant and sensitive, revealing the amazing capabilities of this young performer.
"...A year on, [Wong] turns to more neglected repertoire and in many ways makes an excellent job of it...Great things may well come from him."
Jeremy Siepmann - BBC Music Magazine - July 2002
