Quotes & Highlights
Watch video of Angela Au performing.
Piano virtuoso Angela Au astonishes audiences at every concert with her incredible musical gift. Au began piano lessons at the age of six. After just nine months, she won her first prize, a grand championship, and then went on to break all records by winning over a dozen championships, including China’s first nationally-televised 1984 Pearl River Prize: Guangzhou – Hong Kong – Macau Piano Invitation Competition. In 1986, Angela made her debut as Hong Kong’s youngest-ever soloist in a piano recital sponsored by the German Consulate General. She was chosen to play for Queen Elizabeth II to honor the Royal visit to Hong Kong. In 1987, she became the first Hong Kong-born pianist admitted to the Curtis Institute of Music, studying with Gary Graffman and Eleanor Sokoloff. On completion of her musical studies at Curtis, Au then earned her degree in economics at Harvard.
