This Week’s FTT Moment: An Accomplished Composer At 12
This week on From the Top’s new podcast series highlighting moments from our archives, we hear the work of an incredible 12-year-old composer who has gone on to a very successful career in music.
In June 2000, composer and pianist Sebastian Chang, from Trebuco Canyon, CA, appeared on From the Top’s 25th show in Boston. He performed his piece Moonlight Masquerade for Violin and Piano, an homage to European folk music, with 15-year-old violinist Stephan Jackiw, who is now one of America’s foremost violinists.
Today, Sebastian’s compositions have been performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, the Pacific Symphony, the Louisville Orchestra, and more. Learn more about Sebastian Chang’s career.
