Hailed by Philadelphia Inquirer as “first class talent” and International Piano Magazine (London) claims that “praises follow her around the world“, Taiwanese-American pianist, Ching-Yun Hu, is recognized and acclaimed worldwide for her dazzling technique, deeply probing musicality, and directly communicative performance style. Her distinguished and multi-facet concert career has taken her to five continents after winning the top prizes at the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Israel and the Concerts Artists Guild Competition.
A native of Taipei, Ching-Yun made her concerto debut at age 13 on a tour in Japan and Taiwan, and continued her musical studies at The Juilliard School, studying with Herbert Stessin. She went on to work with Sergei Babayan at the Cleveland Institute of Music and with Karl-Heinz Kammerling in Hannover, Germany.
Ching-Yun is a passionate educator and keen advocate of classical music, award-winning recording artist, performer, a Steinway Artist, and member of the piano faculty at Temple University in Philadelphia. She is often invited to give master classes and artist residences at universities and music festivals worldwide.
The Tutunov Piano Series Performance will feature Ching-Yu performing an all Liszt concert program that will feature Six Lieder Transcriptions, Three Concert Etudes, and Spanish Rhapsody.
