Chang Sun is a recent music graduate from University College Dublin, Ireland. She has been writing musicology papers on German, French and Russian classical music, including composers such as Beethoven, Camille Saint-Saëns, Stravinsky and Shostakovich. She has also been playing the piano since small in China, and finds Schubert particularly fascinating. She was an alto in the university's Philharmonic Choir, and played in a piano quartet as accompanist for Bertolt Brecht's drama Mother Courage and Her Children. Some of her favourites in classical music include Igor Markevitch's Tchaikovsky Symphony No 6, Dinu Lipatti and Murray Perahia.
