Vicky Chow – Artist in Residence (2018)

Our 2018 Artist in Residence was, New York-based and Vancouver born, pianist Vicky Chow.

With her expressive and nuanced interpretations of contemporary works, Vicky Chow is hailed as “one of our era’s most brilliant pianists.” (Pitchfork)  Captivating audiences around the world with her expansive repertoire and musical prowess, she enjoys a diverse career collaborating with many of the world’s most renowned composers and ensembles.

A graduate of The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music, her critically-acclaimed sophomore solo album A O R T A released in 2016 on New Amsterdam Records, was hailed as “imaginative” and “compelling” (I Care If You Listen) and “above all else a triumph of curation” (Second Inversion). Chow’s lauded first solo album Surface Image and her recording of Piano Counterpoint on Nonesuch Records landed on top album-of-the-year lists including Rolling Stone and Rhapsody. Frequently broadcast on WNYC’s Q2 radio, Chow’s recorded works can be heard on the Nonesuch, New Amsterdam, Tzadik, Cantaloupe Music, Innova, Hinterzimmer, and AltaVoz record labels.
