Cunmo Yin was the Bronze Medalist at the 16th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, which took place in April-May 2021. His previous achievements include 1st Prize and Chamber Music Special Prize at the International Telekom Beethoven Competition Bonn (2019), Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli Prize Piano Academy Eppan (2019), 1st Prize and Public Special Prize at the A. Scriabin International Piano Competition (2018), 2nd Prize and Prize of the “Verein Junger Musiker Deutschland” at the Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Conservatory Competition (2018).

Born in China in 1993, Cunmo received his first piano lessons at the age of 9 and had his first concert a few months later. Five years later, at the age of 14, he recorded a CD with all of Franz Liszt’s transcendent etudes, an unbelievably virtuosic achievement. In 2009 he won 2nd prize at the Shanghai Piano Competition while being the youngest competitor.

Yin continued his studies at the Central Music Conservatory in Beijing and the Music Academy in Shanghai. He is currently studying at the University of Music, Drama and Media in Hanover with Professor Gerrit Zitterbart, and with Andrea Bonatta since 2019.

Yin’s performances include numerous recitals throughout China- Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, and Sichuan. There he played in the most famous concert halls, such as the National Centre for the Performing in Beijing, Nanjing Great Hall of the People, Shanghai Music Hall, Oriental Art Center in Shanghai, and others.

He also played with orchestras such as the Beijing (Peking) Symphony Orchestra, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, the Shanghai Opera Philharmonic, the Xiamen Philharmonic, the Longwood Symphony Orchestra in America, the Orchestra of the Technical University of Braunschweig, and most recently with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

Cunmo Yin currently teaches at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media.
