Praised by The New York Times as a "fiery musician" whose playing is "vigorous and passionate," Chinese-born pianist Qing Jiang has performed to acclaim across the United States and abroad, including at Alice Tully Hall, Weill Hall as well as the U.K.'s Snape Maltings Hall and China's Shenzhen Poly Theater. Jiang is an assistant professor of music at Bucknell University and piano faculty at the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival in Maine.
Passionate about the chamber and contemporary music, Jiang has performed alongside Itzhak Perlman, Gil Kalish as well as with members of the Emerson, Juilliard, Shanghai, Kronos, Jasper and Parker string quartets.
While at the Weis Center, she will present works from a solo album recorded in the fall of 2021. All of the works evoke images of landscapes or dream states. The repertoire includes Maurice Ravel's Sonatine "Jeux d'eau," Leoš Janáček's "In the Mists," Isaac Albéniz's "Iberia Book I," Thomas Adès' "Mazurkas" and Daniel Temkin's "Dreamed Landscapes."
