In 1989, at the age of 24, Wen-Sinn Yang became principal cellist of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra where he stayed until 2005 when he was offered a chair at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Munich. In 1991 he won first prize at the Geneva International Music Competition. Since then he has performed in many concerts all over the world, making use of the opportunity to promote twentieth-century music. Yang has worked with many conductors including Lorin Maazel, Sir Colin Davis, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Semyon Bychkov, Yuri Termirkanov and Mariss Jansons. Invitations from orchestras have taken him to Europe, Canada and the Far East. Wen-Sinn Yang has made over thirty CD recordings, including the cello concertos of Haydn, Dvořák and Boccherini and the entire chamber music works of Aribert Reimann. There is also a CD/DVD box of Bach’s Cello Suites recorded in a pilgrimage church in Bavaria in conjunction with Bavarian television.
