"[Zhang's] aim for lightness, transparency and directness yields poetic results."
Jed Distler, Gramophone



Haochen's performance with the New West Symphony last weekend was met with great acclaim. VC Star applauds Haochen saying, "Zhang riveted the audience’s attention as he conveyed the essence of Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E-flat Major with dazzling finger work that captured the zest of the concerto while not distracting from the composer’s elegant design of the compelling concerto. Zhang, who in 2009 became one of the youngest winners of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, is garnering attention as a pianist evolving into a musician who is fascinating and versatile while not venturing into exaggeration to demonstrate his skills."
