“A pianist-painter who transforms each musical idea into a beautiful array of colours” (La Presse), Philip Chiu is acclaimed for his brilliant pianism, sensitive listening, and a stage presence that eschews the hermit-pianist image in favour of dialogue, openness and authenticity. Soloist and chamber musician, he performs recitals and chamber music concerts across Canada, as well as France, Japan and the United States. Chamber music partners have included James Ehnes, Emmanuel Pahud, Regis Pasquier, Bomsori Kim and Johannes Moser. He has a long-standing violin-piano duo with violinist Jonathan Crow. He has recorded for ATMA Classique, Warner Music, Analekta, Leaf Music and CBC Music, and can be heard on BBC Radio, France Musique, ICI Musique, and CBC Music.
Philip is grateful for the support of Mécénat Musica, the Sylva Gelber Music Foundation, and the Canada Council for the Arts. He also wishes to acknowledge his teachers and mentors: Marc Durand, Jenny Regehr, Susan Steele, and the late Peter Longworth.
