Meet The Artists
Xiaopei Xu, Pianist

At her 2018 Boston Symphony Hall debut, Xiaopei Xu won over the audience with a dazzling performance of the Chopin E minor Piano Concerto with Maestro Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Orchestra. Legendary pianist Martha Argerich describes her as “a sensitive, elegant pianist and a talented artist.” Conductor Bramwell Tovey regards her as “one of the most inspiring young artists” after their first collaboration. Already establishing herself worldwide as a deeply expressive artist, Ms. Xu always uses her technical prowess to achieve poetic results in her interpretations.

Ms. Xu currently resides in Boston and is pursuing a Doctorate in Musical Arts from Boston University. She holds an MM degree from Yale University and BM degree from New England Conservatory of Music. Her principle teachers are Boaz Sharon, Hung-Kuan Chen, Meng-Chieh Liu, and Xun Pan. She has also worked with influential musicians such as Claude Frank, Richard Goode, Paul Bdura-Skoda, and Andrea Bonatta. Ms. Xu has won top prizes at the 4th New York International Piano Competition, Oberlin International Piano Competition, Tureck International Bach Competition, the Washington D.C International Young Artist Competition, the Richmond Piano competition and the Soloist Competition at Boston University.

Ms. Xu performs regularly at festivals including Pianofest in the Hamptons, PianoTexas in Fort Worth, Banff Music Centre in Alberta, Sarasota Music Festival in Florida, Young Artist Festival in Russia, and Walnut Hill Music Festival in Boston, where she was invited to serve as a teaching assistant in 2015 and 2016.

In addition to her musical life, Ms. Xu has a passion for the visual arts. Some of her drawings have been published by the Clara Haskil Competition’s Jeune Critique.
