Edward Leung, Piano

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.

Highlights of the previous season included a sold-out Wigmore Hall recital, chamber music performances with Julian and Jiaxin Lloyd Webber, Simon Callaghan, and members of Philharmonia Orchestra and BBC Philharmonic. His debut album on Resonus Classics was critically acclaimed by BBC Music Magazine and featured on ABC Classic’s Festival of Female Composers and SWR2 Treffpunkt Klassik. A sought-after chamber musician, Edward has worked with members of the Artemis, Lindsay, and Elias String Quartets, as well as David Campbell, Willam Hagen, Viviane Hagner, Guy Johnston, Boris Kucharsky, Charles Neidich, and Rafal Zambrzycki-Payne.

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.
