Described in the Strad magazine as “lithe and expressive”and recipient of an artist fellowship from the Independence Foundation awarded to exceptional artists, violist David Yang has been described as “a conduit for music.”  The all-around renaissance man has forged a career that is a unique blend of performing, storytelling, and composition.  David has collaborated with members of the Avalon, Borromeo, Brentano, Miro, Muir, Tokyo, and Vermeer string quartets, and with Trio Solisti, Cavatina, and Eroica Piano Trios, among others.  He is currently Artisti Director of the Newburyport Chamber Music Festival and the Ashburton Chamber Music Festival (Devon, England), and Director of Chamber Music at theUniversity of Pennsylvania.  As an advocate of new music, he has commissioned dozens of new works, and as leader of the storytelling group Auricolae, he developed a residency program to foster the creation of new compositions by public school students. He was a member of the Ensemble Epomeo based in the United Kingdom.  Their recording of trios by Gál and Krasa was“critic’s choice” in Gramophone Magazine and the Strad (“...a brilliant revelation ... unforgettable ... superb performance”).  The group’s CD of trios by Schnittke, Kurtag,and Penderecki received four of four stars from the London “Independent.”
