Notes & Reviews:

The Boston Globe hailed Tian Ying as "one of the finest active pianists in America," and further described him thus: "Ying is at the pinnacle of pianism! In the first major piano recital of the season, Tian Ying set the bar unimaginably high. If we are lucky others will play as well; no one is going to play better." Ying has become well known for his eloquent, poetic, dramatically intense performances. With his reputation for unusually searching and profound interpretations played at the highest level of virtuoso accomplishment, Ying has earned a distinguished place among the most exciting, original and accomplished artists of his generation.
