Winner of many prestigious awards, including high honors at the Eighth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 1989, Tian Ying has become well known for his eloquent, poetic, dramatically intense performances. With his reputation for unusually searching and profound interpretations played at the highest level of virtuoso accomplishment, Ying has earned a distinguished place among today's most exciting, original and accomplished artists of his generation.  

Tian Ying has appeared with numerous orchestras, such as the Rochester Philharmonic, Louisville Orchestra, Chicago Sinfonietta at Orchestra Hall, symphonies of Atlanta, Fort Worth, Toledo, Columbus, Colorado, Hartford, Jacksonville, Spokane, Wichita, Ann Arbor, Shanghai, and Hong Kong Philharmonic, among others. Solo recitals have taken Tian Ying across North America, Europe, and from Casablanca to Seoul, and he frequently conducts master classes in universities and colleges around the country.

Tian Ying's 1993 Bank of Boston Celebrity Series concert was chosen as one of the Top Ten in classical music events by The Boston Globe. There have been many articles written about Tian Ying, including profiles in The New York Times, Christian Science Monitor, and People Magazine.

Tian Ying is currently on the piano faculty at the prestigious Frost School of Music at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida.

THE BOSTON GLOBE "Ying's reputation is as a poet of the piano, an artist of rare sensitivity - One of the great events of the pianistic and musical season!"

THE TIMES (London) "Ying's Chopin was the most fascinating experience... His quality of sound is intensely imaginative, achieved and beautiful, with the capacity for largeness and fullness, and he showed in his phrasing a courtesy towards the music, inviting it rather than applying force, that was rare. ...this is an undemonstrative and unpretentious musician."

THE ARIZONA DAILY STAR "This was mesmerizing, poetic, unforgettable musicianship."

THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER "Mr. Ying's exquisite exploration of the piano produced some of the most beautiful playing..."

FANFARE "For even more impressive than his technique is the quality of interpretations, which steadfastly refuse to fall into any stylistic niche. On one hand, his playing is often modernistically sharp, even biting. One the other hand, his pearly legato and artfully sculpted dynamics can seduce your ear. What remains absolutely consistent from beginning to end, though, is the freshness of his musical vision."

THE COURIER-JOURNAL of LOUISVILLE "Seldom have I encountered an account of this concerto (Rachmaninoff No.3) that was as expertly articulated… and by its close, the performance had confirmed its undeniable stature."

THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN "Ying's performance was not only perfect, it was joyous, playful, even original... His energy, his drive, his phrasing breathed new life."

CHICAGO TRIBUNE "Ying has individual ideas; he can clearly do anything he wants at the piano. But he is far too intelligent and sensitive to waste his big technique in superficial display. There is an integrity to his pianism that commands respect."

IRISH TIMES   "Tian Ying’s playing of Chopin was so individual, so subversive of convention, that it startled.  Yet it was so integrated that it made one think anew about well-known music.  Above all, it is an extraordinary idea, sustained by extraordinary disciplined imagination."
