RUEIBIN CHEN Concert Pianist ( 鋼琴演奏家 陳瑞斌 )
Mr. Rueibin Chen's distinguished career as an internationally-acclaimed pianist has earned him a reputation for technical brilliance, immense energy, and intense artistic expression.
He was the opening soloist in the 2010 World Expo in China, performing the Yellow River Concerto. Critics hailed it as the best performance of the iconic piece in its history. In 2014 he performed with L.A. Philharmonic at the huge Hollywood Bowl to a sold-out audience. In 2015 he is invited to perform with Pacific Symphony at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in S. Cal. His masterful performances of Rachmaninoff's complete piano concertos (including the Paganini Rhapsody Op. 43) in two consecutive nights at Taiwan's National Concert Hall garnered significant critical acclaim. The performance was considered to be "the first of its kind and has left a sensational imprint in the minds of the overflowed audience." Such praise befits "one of those geniuses that come along once in twenty years." (Neue Zürcher Zeitungem)
A Chinese Austrian born in Taiwan, Chen won a total of eighteen medals, including five gold medals which were won before the age of 20, in various international piano competitions in Tel Aviv (Rubinstein), Warsaw (Chopin), Salt Lake City (Bachauer), Athens (Callas), Vienna, Manresa, and Italy (Rome, Rachmaninoff, Bellini, and Stresa), just to name a few.
He has appeared as soloist with many orchestras around the world, including the L.A. Philharmonic, Pacific Symphony, Utah Symphony, Polish National Radio Symphony, Budapest Symphony, Prague Symphony, Czech State Philharmonic of Brno, Moscow State Symphony, Russian State Symphony, Singapore Symphony, New Philharmonia Japan, China National Symphony, Shanghai Symphony, Taiwan Philharmonic, Taipei Symphony, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, and London Chamber Players, among others. He has worked with many renowned conductors, such as Sergiu Comissiona, Antoni Wit, Pavel Kogan, Joseph Silverstein, and András Ligeti.
Chen tours regularly throughout the world, performing in major concert halls such as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in NYC, Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A., Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, Jack Singer Concert Hall in Calgary (Canada), Musikverein and Konzerthaus in Vienna, Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Opera de Monte Carlo, Warsaw Philharmonie, Bolshoi Hall in Moscow, F.
