China is producing some of today's best young pianists. Sa Chen won third prize at last year's Van Cliburn Competition. She plays the Chaconne in G by Handel at the Strings in the Mountains Music Festival in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. And pianist Angela Cheng plays an entertaining piece by Chinese composer Tan Dun, "Staccato Beans." The performance is from Piano Portland International in Portland, Oregon.
