旅美鋼琴家陳偉茵活躍於國際樂壇,除了擁有高超的演奏技巧外,音樂性及成熟度是她脫穎而出的最佳優勢,「音樂」本身是她演奏時最重要的考量,她總能精準地掌握樂曲的核心,她細膩的音樂性獲得國際級大師如 Leon Fleisher、Richard Goode、Claude Frank 等人的讚譽。陳偉茵是一位「思考」型的音樂家,她總能超越樂譜上的音符把音樂提升到另一個境界。

陳偉茵在美國及歐洲均有發行專輯,個人首張專輯《G調日記》年在美國發行,該專輯收錄舒伯特與舒曼的鋼琴奏鳴曲,美國知名古典音樂雜誌 Fanfare 資深樂評Jerry Dubins 盛讚陳偉茵演奏的舒伯特奏鳴曲是「我所聽過的錄音中最令人驚歎的…」另外,陳偉茵與荷蘭阿姆斯特丹皇家管弦樂團室內樂團(Camerata RCO) 所錄製的莫札特與孟德爾頌室內樂專輯,樂評家 James Forrest 讚譽「…如此年輕的音樂家,她所展現出的內涵深度反映她的天份,她的錄音完全可以和年輕時期的阿格麗希相媲美…」

陳偉茵甫完成與 I Solisti di Milano Classica 於米蘭的首度合作,並首次接受義大利知名音樂雜誌 Amadeus 的專訪與錄音,之後更於荷蘭首度獨奏會巡演。近期的演出包含:紐約卡內基音樂廳演出、義大利的獨奏會、瑞士 Gstaad New Year Music Festival 的協奏演出,該音樂節由 Princess Caroline Murat 擔任總監,摩納哥 Prince Albert II 贊助。陳偉茵也和亞洲主要樂團合作過:與香港管弦樂團演出葛利格鋼琴協奏曲,由國際知名指揮家 Edo de Waart 擔任指揮;國立台灣交響樂團的協奏演出布拉姆斯第一號鋼琴協奏曲,由樂壇傳奇大師 Leon Fleisher 指揮;與曼谷交響樂團演出泰皇蒲美蓬86歲生日皇室音樂會。其他合作的樂團尚包含北京的中國交響樂團、台灣的國家交響樂團(Taiwan Philharmonic NSO);西班牙的 Orquesta Sinfonica Ciudad de Gijon 樂團、美國 Adrian Symphony Orchestra 及 Kalamazoo Philharmonia,以及與荷蘭阿姆斯特丹皇家管弦樂團室內樂團(Camerata RCO)於荷蘭巡迴演出等。

陳偉茵同時對室內樂也有高度的熱忱,她參加過的音樂節包含加州的 La Jolla SummerFest、瑞士的的Verbier Music Festival、德國的Festspiele Mecklenburg- Vorpommern音樂節、義大利的Festival Paesaggi Musicali Toscani、上海國際音樂節、Chelsea Music Festival、佛羅里達的Sarasota音樂節、加拿大的 Banff Center 音樂節,合作過的音樂家有小提琴家林昭亮、Ilya Gringolts、Chee-Yun Kim、David Chan、Alina Pogostkina,中提琴家Paul Neubauer、David Aaron Carpenter、Cynthia Phelps及大提琴家Gary Hoffman及Miro Quartet等。

陳偉茵畢業於茱麗亞音樂院,後取得美國約翰霍普金斯大學琵琶第音樂學院碩士及演奏文憑,師事國際大師Leon Fleisher;同時,亦師事過Richard Goode、 Claude Frank等名師。

“A thoughtful, lyrical, and accomplished artist…The hallmarks of Ms. Chen’s performance were the singing quality of her sound and her attentiveness to inner voices and harmonic shadings… I was captivated by the breadth and warmth of the Mozart playing… " 

- Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

“A stunning young pianist... Her keyboard touch proved consistently firm, meticulously balanced and tastefully assertive, and her sense of phrasing lucidly energetic…” – Kenneth Herman San Diego Arts

“The interpretation was capricious and always executed with good taste and clarity..., Ms. Chen's interpretation elicit the applause from the audience who gave her an enthusiastic standing ovation." – La Prensa

“Glowing and warm. Weiyin Chen brilliantly interprets Austrian composer’s piano concertos. It takes a modern performer of truly superior skill to fully realize every nuance of one of Mozart’s final piano concertos.” - James Keller Bangkok Post

In a time of promising young virtuosos from all over the world, the Taiwanese-American pianist Weiyin Chen stands out not just for her dazzling technique, but above all for the sheer musicality and maturity of her playing, qualities rare in an artist of her young years. Her gift for getting to the musical “heart” of the scores she plays has drawn the attention and praise of such master musicians as the renowned conductor-pianist Leon Fleisher and pianists Richard Goode and Claude Frank, all of whom she studied with extensively, among a legion of other notable figures. Ms. Chen is a “thinking pianist” who has a rare ability to look beyond the notes on the page to divine a score’s musical essence.

Ms. Chen released 2 albums in USA and Europe respectively. Her debut solo CD Diary in G, which includes Schubert’s Sonata No. 18 in G major and Schumann’s Piano Sonata No. 2 in G minor, is a testament to her superb talents as an interpreter. The longtime critic Jerry Dubins of Fanfare wrote in his glowing review, “ I can honestly say that no other performance and recording of this Sonata I’ve heard has won me over as this one has….” Her other recording with the Camerata RCO features Mozart Piano Concerto in A major K.414 and Mendelssohn Concerto in D minor for Piano, Violin and Strings. Critic James Forrest praised her playing in the disc review “…the amount of insight she brings to this music, so early in her career, speaks volumes for the inherent gifts with which she has endowed…Chen’s youth can entirely equal the playing of Argerich recorded with an additional quarter-century of years and experience behind her. Gutman Records has a winner here.”

Ms. Chen’s season includes her debut in Milan with I Solisti di Milano Classica, in addition to her debut interview and an all Schubert recording for the Amadeus magazine in Italy followed by her first recital tour in the Netherlands. Recent highlights include performances at Carnegie Hall in New York, solo piano recitals in Italy and concerto engagement at the New Year Music Festival in Gstaad Switzerland, under the artistic direction of Princess Caroline Murat and the patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco. She has performed as soloist with most of the major orchestras in Asia, highlights include the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, with whom she made her debut under Maestro Edo de Waart, Brahms First Piano Concerto with the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Leon Fleisher, the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra in a Royal Celebration Concert honoring the 86th Birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, China National Symphony Orchestra, Taiwan Philharmonic NSO; Orquesta Sinfonica Ciudad de Gijon in Spain, Adrian Symphony Orchestra and Kalamazoo Philharmonia in Michigan, concert tour with Camerata RCO–members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in the Netherlands.

Recitals have taken her to France, Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, Panama, India, Taipei, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Utah and Chicago.

Ms. Chen has performed in such festivals as La Jolla Summerfest, Verbier Festival & Academy, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Festival Paesaggi Musicali Toscani, Shanghai International Music Festival, Chelsea Music Festival, Sarasota Music Festival, and the Banff Center; collaborating with such instrumentalists as violinists Cho-Liang Lin, IlyaGringolts, Chee-Yun Kim, David Chan, AlinaPogostkina, violists Paul Neubauer, David Aaron Carpenter and Cynthia Phelps, cellist Gary Hoffman and the Miro Quartet.

Born into a medical family, Ms. Chen advocates charity work combining the healing power of music and medicine. She led a meaningful humanitarian project in India with her father, world-renowned surgeon Dr. Hung-Chi Chen. She taught and performed under the auspices of the Mehli Mehta Foundation in Mumbai, where the ticket sale of the concert was donated to the surgical mission conducted by Dr. Chen in Aurangabad. He and his team performed about 50 surgeries free of cost to the poor and children in need who would not otherwise have access to such treatment. The collaboration of their joined forces created a beautiful story.

Ms. Chen’s musical education has included The Juilliard School and studies with Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, and private study with Richard Goode and Claude Frank.
