Artist's Corner


    Born in Taipei, Taiwan, Pei-Yao Wang was the youngest pianist ever to receive the overall First Prize in the Taiwan National Piano Competition, at the age of eight. Four years later, she was invited to study at The Curtis Institute of Music, where she worked with Seymour Lipkin and Institute Director Gary Graffman. She then studied with Claude Frank at Yale University, where she received the Master of Music degree, and also pursued a concentration in architecture. She has performed as soloist with the Stamford Symphony, Orlando Symphony, South Fingerlake Orchestra and Taipei Philharmonic. She also has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia, including venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and Suntory Hall. As a chamber musician, Ms. Wang has collaborated with members of the Guarneri , Orion, Chicago, Mendelssohn and Miró Quartets and has performed with other distinguished artists such as Claude Frank, Hilary Hahn, David Shifrin and Mitsuko Uchida. She is also regularly invited to perform at festivals including Marlboro, Caramoor, Norfolk, La Jolla, Ravinia, and Bridgehampton in New York. She is currently a member of Chamber Music Society Two at Lincoln Center, a program to promote emerging young artists. She currently resides in New York City, where for several years she was the only student of Richard Goode.
