alexander wu

Co-founder & artistic director | piano, Music arranger

Alexander Wu joined the elite roster of Yamaha Performing Artists in 2010. The Washington Post recently praised, “Wu’s exuberant etudes on Gershwin songs and the dreamy Ellington’s Reflections in D – sounded assured and settled….he is uncommonly attractive and entertaining.” He performs on the international stages as a soloist, arranger and collaborative chamber player, also engaging audiences with his inspired “concert with commentary” programs, in Europe, Asia and South America.

 

Recently, Mr. Wu has given concerts and master classes that include the Millennium Stage at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Smithsonian Institute Museums, National Gallery of Art, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, 92Y, Merkin Hall, Armor Hall at Wave Hill, Bargemusic, Bard College, Mannes College-The New School, Hofstra University, Trinity Church Wall Street, Florida Atlantic University and Musikfest (PA).

 

Mr. Wu’s discography, available on cdbaby.com and itunes.com, includes his two solo CDs, Bach to the Future: Classical & Jazz Piano and Rhythm Road across the Americas, a Broadway to Classical piano four-hand CD Four Hand Band, a crossover chamber jazz band CD ZigZag Quartet and the much anticipated all Gershwin piano solo CD to be released in fall 2019. He is the artistic director and co-founder of the Millennium Chamber Symphony in New York City.
