A recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, Meng-Chieh Liu was graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music. The stellar beginning of his career was abruptly halted by a rare and debilitating illness. With arduous determination, Mr. Liu has been restored to full health and is now once again performing on the concert stage. Since then, he has performed throughout the world as a soloist in recitals and with orchestras under conductors Christoph Eschenbach, Gustavo Dudamel and Alan Gilbert. Since 1993, Liu served on the piano and chamber music faculties at the Curtis Institute of Music, and in 2006, he was invited to teach at Roosevelt University. Starting in 2014, Liu also joined the faculty at the New England Conservatory. Liu now serves as Artistic Director of Chicago Chamber Musicians and the ensemble, where performances have been acclaimed for his “faultless, discreetly balanced pianism” (Chicago Classical Review).
