From Inside Culture on RTE July 25th 2016

The Dublin International Piano Festival and Academy is now in its fourth year. Concerts and masterclasses are planned for various venues across the city. Dr. Archie Chen from The Piano Academy of Ireland introduces us to highlights of this year’s festival and discusses the life and works of Frédéric Chopin whose name is most closely associated with the piano. Dr.Chen then dives into Chopin’s watery Barcarolle opus 60 and brings us on an aural journey through rivers, streams and cascades.

International Piano Magazine Review of DIPF
For me, though, Chen's drily witty performance of Alkan's Le festin d'Esope at another Dublin venue, the Hugh Lane Gallery (which house Francis Bacon's preserved studio), has stayed longer in the memory than anything else
