TIANWA YANG

Tianwa Yang has quickly established herself as a leading international performer and recording artist. She has recorded critically acclaimed interpretations of Sarasate’s complete music for violin and orchestra (8.572191, 8.572216, 8.572275, 8.572276) and for violin and piano (8.557767, 8.570192, 8.570893, 8.572709). These Naxos début albums were followed by Piazzolla’s Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (8.572271) with the Nashville Symphony and Giancarlo Guerrero and a coupling of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Piazzolla’s Las 4 Estaciones Portenas arranged for violin and strings (8.551228 / Naxos Germany only) followed by Rihm’s Complete works for Violin and Piano (8.572730). Her recording of Mendelssohn’s two Violin Concertos (8.572662) has won the highest praise. Her recording of Paganini’s 24 Caprices, made at the age of thirteen, makes her the youngest artist to have recorded these works. She also appears on the Naxos 20th Anniversary Gala concert DVD (2.110277) live from the Wigmore Hall, London. Her most memorable concert performances with some of the most prestigious international orchestras include those given in the Gewandhaus, Leipzig, the Salle Pleyel, Paris, the Philharmonic Hall, Berlin, the Rose Theater, New York and the Gasteig, Munich, as well as appearances at the Ravinia Festival, USA, the Schwetzingen Festival, Germany, and on tour throughout the major cities of Canada. In May 2012 she was selected to perform for Naxos’s 25th Anniversary Gala celebrations and for the inaugural event of Classical:Next in Munich.

Born in Beijing, Tianwa Yang began studying the violin at the age of four, winning six national competitions even in childhood. At the age of ten she entered the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, and in 2003 she was awarded a scholarship by the German Academic Exchange Service to study chamber music in Germany where she remains a resident. While admiring the music of Brahms, Mozart, Schubert and Ravel, Yang feels a strong affinity with the work of Wolfgang Rihm, which she finds emotionally compelling, diverse and unique. She is a multi-faceted artist with wide-ranging artistic interests. She extends her gratitude to Lin Yaoji, Jörg-Wolfgang Jahn and Anner Bylsma for their musical insight and support throughout her career. In this recording Tianwa Yang plays on a violin of Petrus Guarneri (Venice) 1729, on kind loan of Mr. Rin Kei Mei in Singapore.
