He had his first role in an opera production of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte in 2007, and in 2008 he performed in the Rossini Opera Festival in Italy, its first Chinese singer. Chen is a native of Chongqing who learned to play piano at the age of 9 and achieved fame after winning fourth place as the youngest contestant at the Leeds International Piano Competition in England in 1996. In 1997 she enrolled in the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London with a full scholarship and three years later was fourth in the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. This concert is a great combination of these two young artists, which will bring the audience refreshing Chinese art songs.
