Born in 1991, Anita Chen has already begun to make her mark as a solo instrumentalist. At age seven she was accepted into Juilliard pre-college program and launched her professional career in 2002 performing eight concerts with the St. Luke’s Chamber Orchestra in the Isaac Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall. She made her recording debut in 2006 with the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra (Bel Air Music).
Chen has continued to concertize in North America and internationally to glowing reviews by the New York Times, The Strad, and the Record-Review. Chen’s program includes diverse violin works by Brahms, Beethoven, and Kreisler, among others; her piano performance highlights Liszt in his most theatrical mood in compositions based on Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro,” Verdi’s “Rigoletto” and Gounod’s “Faust.”
