Philip Chiu – piano
“ A pianist-painter who transforms each musical idea into a beautiful array of colors ” ( La Presse ), Philip Chiu is acclaimed for his brilliant pianism, sensitive listening, and a stage presence that eschews the hermit-pianist image and favours openness, authenticity, and connection with audiences.

Philip concertizes extensively as soloist and chamber musician and has performed solo recitals and chamber music concerts in most major venues across Canada, as well as concert halls in France, Japan and the United States. Chamber music partners have included James Ehnes, Emmanuel Pahud, Regis Pasquier, Noah Bendix-Balgley, Bomsori Kim, Johannes Moser, and Raphael Wallfisch. He has a long-standing violin-piano duo with Jonathan Crow, concertmaster of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and violinist of the New Orford String Quartet . Philip is a veteran touring artist of Prairie Debut , Jeunesses Musicales Canada , and Debut Atlantic , having toured the country 14 times with their generous support.
He immensely enjoyed programming unique and imaginative concerts as Cecilia Concert ’s 2018/2019 Artist-in-Residence, and is looking forward to further exploring his creative side as Artist-in Residence for Montreal’s La Chapelle Historique du Bon-Pasteur in 2020. Other upcoming projects include a recording/concert tour of John Burge’s 24 Preludes for Solo Piano , as well as a recording/concert project with Pentaèdre, honouring the music of Jacques Hétu.
