Haochen’s star continues to rise since his 2009 Cliburn win—notable achievements include two lauded discs for BIS Records, a 2017 Avery Fisher Career Grant, an ongoing relationship with The Philadelphia Orchestra (at home and on tour), and debuts with the BBC Proms, New York Philharmonic, and Moscow’s Easter Festival, among others. He enjoys collaborations with the world’s foremost conductors, as well as chamber music with the Shanghai, Tokyo, and Brentano Quartets. Only 19 when he won Cliburn gold, he graduated from Curtis three years later; he continues to live in Philadelphia and also enjoys expressing his creativity through painting. haochenzhang.com
