AN-TING CHANG

Concert Pianist on the International Platform

About

An-Ting’s background is unique.  In 2007, she graduated from Taiwan’s top university, the National Taiwan University, majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Drama Theatre.  She obtained an MMus (Piano) at the Royal Academy of Music, London, winning a Maud Hornsby Award and in 2009 received a DAAD Scholarship- Stüdienstipendien für Ausländische Künstler for advanced study (Aufbaustudium) in piano performance at the Hochschule für Musik, Franz Liszt Weimar, Germany.  She is currently pursuing a PhD (performance practice) at the Royal Academy.

An-Ting regularly appears on the national and international concert circuit and has recently performed at Regent Hall, Newbury Spring Festival, Deal Festival, Bristol Cathedral, Cheltenham Town Hall, Altenburg-Liszt Salon Weimar, and the Akademie der Künste Berlin (Academy of Arts).

In addition to solo and chamber recitals, An-Ting is constantly seeking new and creative approaches to combine her concerts with different media.  Her creation of Concert Theatre was awarded grants from the Arts Council, Elias Fawcett Trust and Royal Victoria Hall Foundation and was featured in 2012 by In Tune (BBC Radio 3), including an interview and live performance.

John Packwood (Bristol Post) described her as ‘a distinguished artiste’ and Martin Cullingford (Gramophone) noted that her Concert Theatre work was ‘beautiful and poignant’.  Her current work includes a new genre of concert with multimedia, The Interpreters – A Poet’s Love (Germany, Taiwan) and concert theatre, 4.48 Psychosis, Webern’s and Gibbons Music (Sir Jack Lyons Theatre London), Sonata Movements (Royal Academy, RADA, Blue Elephant Theatre), Kiss of the Earth (supported by Arts Council England, UK Tour) and Die schöne Müllerin (in development).  She released her debut CD, ‘Water Image’ in February, 2015 (Eito Music).
