Biography

Henry Wong Doe was born in Auckland, New Zealand in 1976. Starting piano with Susan Smith, he later studied with Bryan Sayer at the University of Auckland, graduating with a Bachelor of Music in 1998. Wong Doe continued with graduate work in the United States, studying with Evelyne Brancart at Indiana University Bloomington and earning a Master of Music Degree in 2001 and later received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in 2006 from The Juilliard School where he studied with Joseph Kalichstein.

The winner of 'Audience Favourite' Prizes at the Rubinstein and Busoni International Piano Competitions, Wong Doe has performed at renowned venues, including Carnegie Hall in New York, Tel Aviv's Mann Auditorium and the Sydney Opera House. Wong Doe's prizewinning performances at the 2000 Sydney International Piano Competition was recorded and released on the ABC Classics label. He has appeared on television and radio with solo performances, including BBC Radio 3 (UK), RTBF and Canal la Deux (Belgium), WFMT Radio (Chicago, USA) and TVNZ (New Zealand); and both solo and concerto performances on ABC Classics FM and Channel 9 (Australia), Concert FM (New Zealand), and Kolhamusica (Isreal).

A strong affinity with 20th and 21st Century music, particularly that of New Zealand composers, characterises his programming. His acclaimed debut at Carnegie Weill Recital Hall in 2008 presented solo and interactive works for pianist and computer-controlled piano by Ravel, Messiaen, Ligeti and Risset, and included the North American premiere of Gareth Farr's The Horizon from Owhiro Bay. This recital provided the impetus for this recording of Farr's complete piano works to date, which includes several premiere recordings.

In addition to his performing schedule, Wong Doe has a strong interest in teaching and mentoring. After working initially at Hunter College in New York City, he continues to teach as Assistant Professor of Piano at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and divides his time between New York City and Western Pennsylvania.
