Biography:

Distinguished and multi-facet Taiwanese-American pianist, Ching Yun Hu, is recognized and acclaimed worldwide for her dazzling technique, deeply probing musicality, and directly communicative performance style. Philadelphia Inquirer describes her as “a superb pianist...sensitive musician.” Her concert career has taken her to five continents after winning the top prizes at the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition (watch video with Israel Philharmonic Orchestra) in Israel and the Concerts Artists Guild Competition in New York City.

Ms. Hu made her debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age 17 and has gone on to appear at prestigious concert halls and music festivals across the globe. Her eclectic and extraordinary programming ranges from standard repertoire to world premieres. Recently, she gave the world premiere of “The Red Cliff” piano concerto by Yiu-Kwong Chung, with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center in 2016, followed by the concerto's Asia Premiere in 2019 at the National Concert Hall in Taipei. For Beethoven's 250th anniversary, she is performing the Complete Beethoven Piano Concerti on tour in 2020-2021 season.

Considered a star performer in Asia, Ms. Hu offers an ambitious recital project titled “Ching-Yun’s Four Classical Seasons” in 2020, performing four distinctive recital programs that cover over 30 cities across the US and in Asia. Her latest album released in 2019, “Ching-Yun Hu: Rachmaninoff" is now available worldwide digitally on Naxos and Centaur Records.

As a passionate educator and keen advocator of classical music, she founded the Yun International Music Festival in her native Taipei and the Philadelphia Young Pianists’ Academy (PYPA Piano Festival) which is a highly-sought summer piano festival on the East Coast encompassing intensive master classes and guest lecture series. She is invited to give master classes and artist residences in universities and music festivals across the U.S. and China. Besides her busy performing schedule, she is an artist in residence and piano faculty at the Temple University in Philadelphia.
