EVELYN CHANG

Taiwan-born pianist Evelyn Chang has been an active performer in Asia since moving to Hong Kong in 2009. She enjoys collaborations with composers and artists across the world. Evelyn has been invited several times to perform at the International Hong Kong Chamber Music Festival, Bear’s Premiere Festival and Hong Kong Arts Festival.

 

She spent eighteen years in London where she studied and performed regularly as a soloist and chamber musician, appearing at the Buckingham Palace, South Bank Centre, Wigmore Hall and many other venues in the UK and Europe. She premiered new works and also made numerous recordings including ‘Mahakali’- an improvisatory album with saxophonist Paul Dunmall,  a recital album with violist Maxim Rysanov and a debut solo album ‘Poets from the East’ for Avie Records featuring miniatures by Desyatnikov, Ma Shui-Long and Tabakova. 

Graduated from The Purcell School of Music and Royal College of Music, her teachers included Valéria Szervénszky, Graham Fitch, Andrej Esterhézy, Irina Zaritskaya and Andrew Ball.

Recently Evelyn began writing music. Her debut composition Fantasies for Children - a set of 20 miniatures based on animal themes for piano solo is published by Universal Edition. They are music memos of the story & play times with her children. 

She is a Steinway Artist.
