September 14, 2014
A native of Shenyang, China, pianist Yun-Chin Zhou, whose given name means pure melody, has been hailed as a “dashing virtuoso … complete with dazzling fingerwork and shapely phrasing” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). First Prize Winner of the 2013 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Mr. Zhou will give major debut recitals in New York and Washington, DC in the 2014-15 Young Concert Artists Series.
This season, Mr. Zhou joins YCA clarinetist Narek Arutyunian in a special program at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, presented by Musical Armenia. Upcoming appearances include educational outreach and recital engagements on the Harriman-Jewell Series, the Friends of Music Series, Saint Vincent’s College, the Lied Center of Kansas, and the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.
At the YCA Auditions, Mr. Zhou was awarded seven concert prizes, including the Sunday Musicale Series, and Vancouver Recital Series, as well as the John Browning Memorial Prize, Ruth Laredo Memorial Award, and the Slomovic Prize, which provides support for his debut in Washington, DC.
The TCAN Young Masters Series is sponsored by the Roy L. Komack Memorial Fund.
