About

Named "one of the emerging Chinese international artists today" by Gramophone magazine, and called "an artist of affecting humility and beautiful tone production" by The Strad magazine, Dan Zhu is quickly gaining world recognition. He performs regularly in North America, Europe, and Asia, and has appeared as soloist with orchestras around the world. Of Dan Zhu, Christoph Eschenbach has said, "I first heard this exciting young artist about three years ago. He has appeared with me in Schleswig-Holstein and on tour in China, and will appear with me in August there, as well." Together, Maestro Eschenbach on piano and Dan Zhu will play a recital of Mozart violin sonatas as part of the Kennedy Center's The Music of Budapest, Prague, and Vienna festival.
 
A native of Beijing, Zhu made his first public appearance at age nine, performing the Mendelssohn violin concerto with the China Youth Chamber Orchestra. At age 16, Zhu was awarded the Alexis Gregory Scholarship to study with Lucie Robert at Mannes College of Music in New York.
