Lauded as one of ‘16 Incredibly Impressive Students at Princeton University’ by Business Insider, American pianist Edward Leung has performed solo recitals and appeared with orchestras across North America, Europe, and Asia.
This season’s highlights include recitals with Guy Johnston and Anthony Friend at Musicfest Aberystwyth, William Hagen at the Noel Foundation, Inc. Chamber Music Series, and appearances in Bridgewater Hall, St George’s Bristol, Cranleigh Arts, and Menuhin Hall. He is supported by the Keyboard Charitable Trust, MMSF Piano Fellowship and Live Music Now UK. His debut commercial recording with Resonus Classics with violinist Usha Kapoor will be released in 2023.
A sought-after chamber musician, Edward has collaborated with some of the most important chamber musicians of today, including members of the Artemis, Lindsay, and Elias String Quartets, as well as Viviane Hagner, David Campbell, Boris Kucharsky, Charles Neidich, and Rafal Zambrzycki-Payne. He has worked in masterclasses with Ferenc Rados, Richard Goode, Stephen Kovacevich, Joseph Kalichstein, and Nikolai Demidenko.
Edward is the founder of Opus 21, an innovative chamber music collective dedicated to bringing an eclectic repertory of chamber music to Princeton University and beyond. He has curated programmes juxtaposing contemporary works of living composers with traditional repertoire, organised high-profile concerts throughout New York and New Jersey, and managed the financial and logistical elements of operating the ensemble. Hailed by The Daily Princetonian for its “dramatic, exciting performances” and “a true need in the Princeton arts community”, Opus 21 has formed chamber music collaborations with Harvard and Columbia Universities, and has performed at the Harvard Club of New York, Richardson Auditorium, and APAP|NYC.
After studies at Princeton University and the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with Francine Kay and Pascal Nemirovski, Edward is currently the Staff Pianist at The Yehudi Menuhin School.
