Now at Copland House

In residence through Mid-December, Chen Yihan aims for a convergence of different points in time and space. Much of his work connects the past to the future, and brings together different corners of the world in an abstract, poetic, and emotional way that transcends culture and epoch. His music is often a play of lines, space, and intensity in a calligraphic way, reflecting his cultural roots in the Chinese arts. His compositions have been performed by the China National Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra of the National Opera House of China, and The Juilliard Orchestra, among others. Recipient of two ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Young Composer Awards, he graduated from Juilliard and Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, and is currently a doctoral candidate at Princeton University. As a pianist, he won the Grand Prize at the Cincinnati World Piano Competition.
