Shenson Chamber Music Concert

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:
At 22, pianist Ran Jia is already regarded as a striking musician with unusual natural abilities. Born in China, Jia began studying piano at the age of three and made her solo debut in 1995.
A decade later, she made her debut at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall with her teacher, Gary Graffman, and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K. 467 under Maestro Li Jian. Jia made an acclaimed European recital debut at the Klavierfestival Ruhr in the summer of 2008 playing two Schubert sonatas.
Recent engagements include recitals in Europe—Munich, Dusseldorf, and Dresden—and performances in the U.S. at the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival and the Miami International Piano Festival. Orchestral performances include the Vancouver Symphony and the Hong Kong Philharmonic. She is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and is currently enrolled at the Hochschule für Musik in Köln, studying under Nina Tichman.
