Sheng Cai, plays Bartok concerto No. 1 in Mexico
Sheng Cai after the second salvo of applause, presented the audience with the "pylons" already mentioned. It was balm for the
ears. It was the reunion with the music itself. It was also-as if it were necessary, which was not the case-the best way to clear
any doubts bout the technical qualities that have won multiple awards.

the Andalusian, of Granddads,and Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, shined in the evening.

The World's Stage in Haliburton, Canada
Not since I've seen the Canadian great pianist Glenn Gould in a documentary have I seen so much passion and demonstrative emotion!
Award winning pianist Sheng Cai was a dynamic force performing for Performing Arts Pavilion in Haliburton. Cai, who was born in China but immigrated in 1999 with his family to Canada made his debut with the Toronto Symphony at 15 and has played all over the world. This performance was part of the Haliburton concert Series, which receives support from the Ontario Arts Council.
