Pianist Wenwen Du trained with Dan Zhaoyi at the Shenzhen Arts School in China, and with Lee Kum Sing at the Vancouver Academy of Music in Canada. She attended master courses at the Oxford Lieder Festival (UK), Britten-Pears Programme (UK), and Franz Schubert Institut (Austria), where master teachers included the pianists Julius Drake, Imogen Cooper, and Helmut Deutsch, the singers Elly Ameling, Ian Bostridge, and Wolfgang Holzmair.
Wenwen has given piano recitals in Europe, North America and Asia, most recently or the Coast Recital Society (Canada).
Wenwen collaborated with Nikki Chooi and Timothy Chooi at the Coast Recital Society and Cecilian Chamber Series (Canada), with Caroline Goulding at the Vancouver Recital Society (Canada), and with Abigail Levis and Johannes Kammler at the Aldeburgh Festival (UK). She appeared at the Walt Disney Concert Hall for the Los Angeles Philharmonic with director Yuval Sharon, soprano Julia Bullock, bass-baritone Ryan McKinny, pianist Richard Valitutto, and the actors Miles Anderson, Alan Mandell, Barry McDaniel. Bella Merlin, and Priscilla Pointer, in a programme entitled “Night and Dreams,” a Schubert and Beckett recital.
She has frequently appeared with Ian Bostridge, to widespread critical acclaim. The New York Classical Review commented on their Songs of World War I, “Du was indeed sensitive but also forceful—her playing was more duet than recital, equal to Bostridge in intensity, suave one moment, crashing the next.” Of their Winterreise, the Vancouver Sun wrote, “Du and Bostridge are not just on the same page, they anticipate each other’s every nuance in perfect synchronization.” Their appearances have included the Dallas Opera’s Titus Recital Series, the Park Avenue Armory, Spivey Hall, the Suseong Artpia, and the Cheonan Arts Center.
