Hailed by Isreali newspaper Haaretz as a "tastefully polished musician," Chinese pianist XIAOHUI YANG has been featured in performances over four continents, including venues such as Ozawa Hall, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Tel Aviv Museum of Art and Seoul Arts Center. As the winner of 2017 edition of the prestigious Naumburg Piano Competition, she will be granted a New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall besides a newly commissioned work written for her. Other highlights of this season include concerts with the Louisiana Philharmonic and the Peabody Symphony, a residency sponsored by Portland Piano International and a solo recital at the Shriver Hall Concert Series, in Baltimore. A dedicated chamber musician, Ms. Yang has performed with luminaries such as Peter Wiley and Roberto Diaz, having been in residence at important music festivals in the USA, such as Marlboro, Tanglewood, Ravinia and Taos.
In 2008, Ms. Yang moved to the United States to attend the Curtis Institute of Music, where she studied with Ignat Solzhenitsyn, and received the 2013 Festorazzi Prize, awarded to the best graduating piano student. After further studies at the Juilliard School with Robert McDonald, she is currently pursuing her Doctor of Musical Arts degree with Boris Slutsky at the Peabody Conservatory.
