Frederic Chiu

The son of Chinese immigrant parents, Federic Chiu made his debut at the age of fourteen with John Nelson and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. At Indiana University he studied piano with Karen Shaw as well as computer science, and took further piano instruction from Abbey Simon at the Juilliard School in New York. Chiu has lived for many years in France, commencing his career in Paris, and has performed in most of the major European cities. Regular appearances in North America include the Newport Music Festival, and he has participated in the Mostly Mozart Festival in New York. Success in the Far East, in Taiwan and Hong Kong, has led to Chiu becoming a regular performer and teacher at the Beijing Central Conservatory. During the 2001–2002 season Chiu toured Japan and made his orchestral debut at Lincoln Center in New York, playing Saint-Saëns’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor Op. 22 with the Orchestre de Bretagne and Stefan Sanderling.

Chiu has won many awards including the American Pianists’ Association Fellowship, the Petscheck Award, and the Avery Fisher Career Grant. In order to raise his international profile Chiu entered the 1993 Van Cliburn Piano Competition in Fort Worth, Texas, but his elimination before the final round generated much publicity and protest.
