20121013-Zhang-Haochen

Haochen Zhang remembered the moment his parents bought him a piano when he was just 4 years old, saying, "It looked like a big toy to me." The next year he was taking lessons and showed ability far beyond other students in his age group. He has been performing and winning prestigious awards ever since. It has been three years since he won the ultra competitive Van Cliborn International Piano Competition, and 15 years ago he began touring the major cities in China. It has been 16 years since his orchestral debut, and 17 years his since his first recital at the Shanghai Music Hall where he played all of Bach's two part inventions. Haochen is only 22 years old.

He is both insightful and daring and posses a marvelous sense of touch and color.
