Frederic Chiu’s intriguing piano-playing and teaching springs from a diverse set of experiences and interests: his Asian/American/European background, his musical training, and an early and ongoing exploration of artificial intelligence and human psychology, especially the body-mind-heart connection.
A Yamaha Artist for over 20 years, this versatile pianist is at home playing in major classical venues such as Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center or collaborating with classical artists like Joshua Bell and the St. Lawrence String Quartet. He is equally comfortable performing with jazz artists, actors, and even clowns.
“Chiu is a stunningly virtuosic pianist with a dynamic range that almost defies the capabilities of modern recording techniques.” — BBC Music Magazine
