Yiming Zhang has a wide spectrum of musical interests ranging from the Baroque period to the present day. In recent years, he has pursued a particular interest in contemporary Chinese piano music, and has comprehensively researched and performed the piano music of the composer Wang Lisan. Besides this recording project of the complete piano works of Wang Lisan for Naxos, he has also written a substantial biography of the composer, for publication by the People’s Music Publishing House. In addition, he is a frequent collaborator with other contemporary Chinese composers such as Ge Gan-ru (b.1954) and Wang Xilin (b.1937). As a translator, Zhang has translated and published several books from English to Chinese, including Carl Czerny’s On the Proper Performance of All Beethoven’s Works for the Piano and Charles Burney’s The Present State of Music in Germany, the Netherlands, and United Provinces. Yiming Zhang was awarded his doctoral degree in piano performance from Temple University in 2015, where he studied with Harvey Wedeen and Lambert Orkis. Prior to 2008, his piano teachers included Mikhail Yanovitsky, Su Bin and Yao Shizhen.
