Sisi Chen is a virtuoso of the yangqin or Chinese hammered dulcimer, a traditional instrument that dates to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). Following appearances at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, and Lincoln Center, she has achieved recognition both for her technical mastery of this complex instrument, and for her extraordinary artistic vision, expressed through seemingly infinite variations of timing, touch, and tone. Sisi Chen's performances wrap breathlessly rapid passages within serenely meditative soliloquies.
