Instrumentalist - Violin

Dan Zhu is widely recognized as one of the finest Chinese musicians today, praised as “an artist of affecting humility and beautiful tone production” by The Strad magazine, performing internationally in North America, Europe, and Asia. The Berkshire Review noted that “the truly brilliant young violinist, Dan Zhu, dispatched [Bernstein’s ‘Serenade’] with assurance and polish.” His recital with Tzimon Barto in Hamburg was highly acclaimed by Die Welt as “distinctive dramaturgy of contrasts, crystalline tones with intensity and sensitivity.” He has appeared under the direction of Christoph Eschenbach, Philippe Entremont, Josep Caballé-Domenech, Gianandrea Noseda, Krzysztof Penderecki, Carl St. Clair, Long Yu, and Jean-Marie Zeitouni, among others; and has been invited to perform and give master classes at renowned festivals, such as Salzburg Festspiele, Tanglewood, Marlboro, Menton, Schleiswig-Holstein, Prades-Casals, Ravinia, and Spoleto.
