Acclaimed pianist Ching-Yun Hu returns to Oakmont


Oakmont Berger Center

Thursday February 2018 - 1:30pm to

On Thursday, Feb. 8, at 1:30 p.m. in Berger Center, Music at Oakmont welcomes the distinguished Taiwanese-American pianist Ching-Yun Hu. Recognized worldwide for her dazzling technique, deeply probing musicality, and directly communicative performance style, Hu has enjoyed a host of engagements on five continents since winning the top prize at the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in Tel Aviv, where she was also awarded the Audience Favorite Prize. Immediately following this triumph, she was engaged for a seven-city tour across Israel, performing Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 on only one week's notice. A year later, she won the prestigious Concert Artists Guild Competition in New York City.

In addition to performing, Hu founded the Yun-Hsiang International Music Festival in Taipei in 2012. The following year she established the Philadelphia Young Pianists' Academy, held each year at the Curtis Institute. She serves on the piano faculty at Philadelphia's Temple University. Her Feb. 8 program will feature the complete Etudes Tableaux Op. 39 by Rachmaninoff, as well as works by Gershwin, Charles-Valentin Alkan, and Nicolai Kapustin.
