About The Artist

Darrell Ang's uncommon gift was discovered at the age of four when he began to play violin and piano. His natural artistic curiosity had no bounds, and soon he was inspired to study composition. As a teenager, he followed his musical dream all the way to St. Petersburg where he studied conducting in the grand tradition of the legendary Ilya Musin. There he developed a particular passion for 20th century Russian music which, along with French and contemporary Asian repertoire, remains central to his artistic identity. Darrell Ang continued his studies at Yale, becoming its first Conducting Fellow. He is grateful to his mentors Lorin Maazel, Vladimir Jurowski and Esa-Pekka Salonen for their invaluable advice and support. Darrell Ang is fluent in English, German, French, Italian, Russian and Mandarin, most of which he learned for the purpose of rehearsing in orchestras' native languages.
