Viola

bio

Recipient of an artist fellowship from the Independence Foundation awarded to a small number of exceptional artists, violist David Yang has been described as "lithe and expressive" in the Strad Magazine and called “a conduit for music;” the renaissance man has forged a career that is a blend of performing, composition, and storytelling, and been heard in collaboration with members of the Borromeo, Brentano, Miro, Pro Arte, Tokyo, and Vermeer String Quartets. He has premiered dozens of works and is Artistic Director of the Newburyport Chamber Music Festival and Director of Chamber Music at the University of Pennsylvania along with a member of string trio Ensemble Epomeo based in the U.K. Their recordings have been designated “critic’s choice” in Gramophone Magazine and their second CD of the music of Schnittke, Penderecki, and Kurtag described in the Strad as "...remarkable intensity and elegant assurance throughout…there are finely balanced chords moving from glowing diatonicism to harsh dissonance, and carefully shaped melodies with beautifully expressive vibrato -- yet they never lose sight of the work's broader architecture, nor of its poignant, increasingly bleak mood.” He plays on the “ex-Joachim” Johannes Tielke viola from 1670.
