Program Notes

Pianist Hoachen Zhang
Van Cliburn International Piano Competition Gold Medalist

Since his Gold Medal win at the Thirteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009, Haochen Zhang has captivated audiences in the United States, Europe, and Asia with the unique combination of deep musical sensitivity, fearless imagination, and spectacular virtuosity. In 2017, Haochen received the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, which recognizes talented musicians with the potential for a major career in music.

Haochen has appeared with many of the world’s leading festivals and orchestras, including the BBC Proms with Long Yu and the China Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic with Lorin Maazel in a sold-out tour in China, Easter Festival in Moscow, Sydney Symphony, and David Robertson in a China tour, and NDR Hamburg and Thomas Hengelbrock in a tour of Tokyo, Beijing, and Shanghai. In the 2019-2020 season, Haochen continued his ongoing collaboration with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin with concerts in Philadelphia and a tour in Japan. Additional orchestral highlights include Singapore Symphony, the complete Beethoven concertos with the Hong Kong Philharmonic, and a tour in China with the National Symphony Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda. He also gave solo recitals across China and Europe.

In July 2019, Haochen released his debut concerto album on BIS Records performing Prokofiev’s Second Piano Concerto and Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra under Dima Slobodeniouk. His debut solo album, released by BIS in February 2017, includes works by Schumann, Brahms, Janáček, and Liszt.

In recent seasons, Haochen debuted with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and toured Asia with the Philadelphia Orchestra. He has given extensive recital and concerto tours in Asia with performances in China, Hong Kong, and Japan. In October 2017, Haochen gave a concerto performance at Carnegie Hall with the NCPA Orchestra, which was followed by his recital debut at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall.
