  Hong Xu
, pianist
 

Hailed by the New York Times as "technically brilliant, insightful musician and seemingly limitless potential", Hong Xu is one of China's most accomplished pianists of his generation.

He has performed with world-renowned conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenzy, Mikhail Pletnev, Yannick Nezét- Seguin, Sir Mark Elder, Yan Pascal Totelier, Hans Graf, Markus Stenz and Robert Spano. Recent Concerto appearances with London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Hallé Orchestra in Manchester, Russian National Orchestra, Orchestre Nacional de Portuguesa, Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Beijing's NCPA Orchestra, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal.

Mr. Xu has appeared in many important recital series and venues, including Wigmore hall, Royal Festival Hall, Weill Recital hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City, Terrace Theater at the Kennedy Center, Beijing's NCPA, Taipei's National Concert Hall and Seoul Arts Center. BBC Magazine and International Piano Quarterly have named him as one of the most promising rising stars.

A devotee of new music, Hong Xu has premiered works by Frederic Rzewski who wrote "Rubinstein in Berlin" for him in 2008. Since then, he has premiered many works by American composers both in China and abroad, including those by Bolcom, Corigliano and Rochberg.

He received his early training at the Wuhan Conservatory of music with Liping Jiang and subsequently went to the United States studying with Douglas Humpherys at the Eastman School of Music, and with Jerome Lowenthal and Robert McDonald at the Juilliard School. During his studies in the USA, he won prizes at the Bachauer, Hilton Head and Honens International Piano Competitions.

In 2010, he accepted a teaching position at the Wuhan Conservatory of Music where he is currently an associate professor. His students have won many prizes and awards both nationally and internationally. Recently Mr. Xu was invited to give masterclasses at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Oberlin College, New York University, Boston University, London's Trinity School of Music, Taiwan's National University of Arts, Beijing International Music Festival & Academy and the Amalfi Coast and Perugia Music Festivals in Italy.
