Dan Zhu is widely recognized as one of the finest Chinese musicians on the international stage today, praised as “an artist of affecting humility and beautiful tone production” by The Strad magazine, performing internationally in North America, Europe, and Asia. His recent performance with the Boston Symphony at the Tanglewood Festival has been raved by the critics as “truly brilliant, compelling, and polished”. His duo recital with Tzimon Barto in Hamburg was highly acclaimed by the Die Welt as “distinctive dramaturgy of contrasts, crystalline tones with intensity and sensitivity”. He has appeared with major orchestras under such maestros as Christoph Eschenbach, Zubin Mehta, Philippe Entremont, Jacek Kaspszyk, Gianandrea Noseda, Krzysztof Penderecki, Carl St.Clair, Muhai Tang, Long Yu among others, and has been invited to perform and give master classes at renowned festivals, including Salzburg Festspiele, Tanglewood, Kuhmo, Marlboro, Menton, Schleiswig-Holstein, Prades-Casals, Ravinia, and Spoleto.
