Shen Wenyu
Shen is remarkable for performing the most difficult pieces from composers such as Bach, Brahms and Chopin. His performance represents his deep understanding of a wide range of works across different periods, including baroque, classical and romantic.

Shen began studying piano at the age of six with Professor Zheng Daxin, one of China’s most renowned piano teachers, and had learned Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.23 in A Major, K. 488 by the age of seven. When he was only ten, Shen was invited to South Africa twice to give public recitals. Many dub him the “Second Mozart.”

In 2003, Shen won the 2nd prize at the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition in Belgium, and also received the “Arthur de Greef” prize, becoming the youngest prizewinner in the competition’s history. Two years later, he won the first prize at the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition in the United States. Since 2019, he has collaborated with over 30 orchestras around the world with a broad repertoire including more than 100 hours of solo and concerto performance pieces.
