About 350 people on Sunday attended the Piano Summit concert held as part of the 10th International Music Festival in Phnom Penh. Four artists—German pianist Ste*phan Rahn, French pianist Etienne Chenevier and Cambodian pianists Rong Sereyvann and So Sronos—performed a number of works by 20th century composers chosen to illustrate how Western classical music evolved over the course of the century. As German composer Dieter Mack explained in a talk prior to the concert, in the past century there was not just one current in music development, but rather a multitude of composers who followed their own paths.
