Jian Wang

Profile

Jian Wang began to study the cello with his father when he was four. While a student at the Shanghai Conservatoire, he was featured in the celebrated documentary film From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China. Mr Stern's encouragement and support paved the way for him to go to the United States and in 1985 he entered the Yale School of Music under a special programme where he studied with the renowned cellist Aldo Parisot.

During the 2008/9 season Jian Wang°«s engagements include the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Louis Langree, Orchestre de Paris and the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra. He will also undertake an extensive tour to Australia including concerts with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Vladimir Ashkenazy. Last season, his performances included the Camerata Salzburg, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic and Singapore Symphony Orchestras. He also made his debut at the BBC Proms performing three of Bach°«s solo Cello Suites.

Jian Wang°«s first professional engagement was in 1986, at New York°«s Carnegie Hall. Since then he has embarked on an international career, early highlights including concerts with the Mahler Youth Orchestra/Claudio Abbado and with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra/Riccardo Chailly (in Amsterdam and on tour in China). He has also performed with many of the world°«s other leading orchestras including Philadelphia, Boston, Detroit Cleveland and Chicago Symphony; NHK Symphony, Zurich Tonhalle, Stockholm Philharmonic, Santa Cecilia, Halle (UK), Scottish Chamber, Mahler Chamber and the National Orchestra of France. These concerts have been with many of the greatest conductors, such as Dudamel, Dutoit, Chung, Gilbert, Krivine, Sawallisch, Neeme Jarvi, Eschenbach, Dausgaard, Wigglesworth and Harding.

Jian Wang has also performed at many festivals throughout the world, as both soloist and chamber musician. These have included Verbier in Switzerland, Miyazaki in Japan, Aldeburgh in the UK and Tanglewood and Mostly Mozart in the USA.

Jian Wang has made many recordings with DGG, Reverie (arrangements for cello and guitar) and the Bach Cello Suites being his most recent releases. He has also recorded a Baroque Album with the Camerata Salzburg, the Brahms Double Concerto with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Claudio Abbado and Gil Shaham; the Haydn Concerti with the Gulbenkian Orchestra under Muhai Tang; Messiaen°«s Quartet for the End of Time (with Chung, Shaham and Meyer) and Brahms, Mozart and Schumann chamber music with Pires and Dumay. His instrument is graciously loaned to him by the family of the late Mr. Sau-Wing Lam.
