The phrase “something old, something new” comes to mind when considering the career to date of 24-year-old Hong Kong–born pianist Tiffany Poon. Steeped in classical tradition as a onetime student of Emanuel Ax and Joseph Kalichstein, she is also devoted to demystifying and building new audiences for classical music via her YouTube channel, where more than 300,000 subscribers follow her concert videos, vlog entries, and “Classical Chats.” She devotes her Hayes Artist recital to works by Clara and Robert Schumann.
