Henry Wong Doe
Since winning “Audience Favourite” prizes at both the Arthur Rubinstein and Busoni International Piano Competitions, Henry has continued to engage audiences with a variety of repertoire and interpretations that combine stylistic awareness and sensitivity.
An avid performer of contemporary music, Henry's debut performance at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2008 featured solo and interactive works for piano and computer-controlled piano. Performing on a Yamaha Disklavier Mark IV, the program included the pioneering 1989 interactive work Eight Sketches - duet for one pianist by Jean-Claude Risset as well as a newly composed interactive work by New York based composer Brendan Adamson. An equally passionate supporter of new music from New Zealand, both his 2008 and 2012 recitals at Weill Recital Hall featured solo and chamber works by Gareth Farr.
Henry’s debut on Rattle was with the highly acclaimed Landscape Preludes in 2014, and in 2017 he released Pictures, an album that paired Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition with Eve de Castro-Robinson’s a zigzagged gaze, a series of ten short pieces written especially for the album that were inspired by art works from the Wallace Art Collection.
