DCINY Artist Series presents Renaissance Duo: Tzu-Yi Zoe Chen and Lan-In Winnie Yang in Review
April 15, 2019
Though April showers came our way, they brought a piano duo, and boy could they play! The Renaissance Duo, consisting of duo-pianists Tzu-Yi Zoe Chen and Lan-In Winnie Yang (who is also a composer), presented as a part of the Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY) Artist series, brought a powerhouse program to Weill Hall on April 12, 2019. I recall fondly Tzu-Yi’s Weill Hall solo debut recital from October 11, 2014, reviewed in these pages (Tzu-Yi Chen in Review). At that recital, she played a suite by Lan-In, so to hear the two of them working together was almost foretold, but I had no idea it would be as delightful as it was.

Come join the musical journey with acclaimed Taiwanese pianist Tzu-yi Chen in her 2018 fall recital as she pays tribe to iconic works by greatest classical composers during wartime. Inspired by music’s power to overcome difficulties in troubled times over the centuries, the musician hopes to take classical music fans to reflect on the pursuit of peace and harmony through music in conflict-ridden modern society.
During her February this year "228 Memorial Concert" at Taiwanese Presbyterian Church in D.C., the notes of the Firebird Suite circled at the fingertips with pianist Tzu-yi Chen’s virtuoso touch, just like the plot described by the Russian composer Stravinsky. A full-house audience at Washington, D.C.’s Taiwanese Presbyterian Church completely followed the composer’s storyline. Their heartbeats were dancing with the wizard and got lost with the melody of the beautiful lullaby. Until the last chord ended with the bright glissando flying like the firebird to the sky, the whole audience was astonished with a few seconds silence, and rejoiced with thunderous applause.

Earlier this decade, A Little Lunch Music featured my friend Tzu-yi Chen once or twice yearly for a few years. She's now based in DC teaching and touring internationally. She's amazing .....
Violinist Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu enjoys a versatile international career as an orchestral soloist, a recitalist and a chamber musician. She has been featured with the National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan and the Taipei Symphony Orchestra in her native country, as well as with such European orchestras as the Odessa Philharmonic Orchestra and the Russian State Symphony Orchestra.
Pianist Tzu-Yi Chen studied in Europe, following the path of the masters whose compositions she played Monday night, before graduating from the Columbus State University Schwob School of Music. The performance opened with a selection from Joaquin Turina's opus 67, Tzu-Yi's intense interpretation reflecting the Spanish composer's passion for regional folk music in the first half of the 20th century.
A magnificent recital took place on October 11 by Taipei-born pianist Tzu-Yi Chen. I am going to have to discipline myself not to use every superlative in the first paragraph. Suffice it to say that, in a wide-ranging program, she displayed not only the usual technical command one expects, but beautiful tone, total artistic involvement, deep feeling, stylistic understanding, and in an era of cookie-cutter musicians, the feeling of spontaneity, even risk, that makes an evening truly memorable, often electrifying.
