As part of the Metronome Piano Sessions – bringing together the best pianists from around the world, for intimate seated performances.

With a distinctive combination of piano melodies and evocative synths, pianist-composer Belle Chen’s soundworld straddles acoustic and electronic realms. Chen’s 2023 recording and debut release via Platoon, titled ‘Ravel in the Forest’ – sees the composer develop her love for immersive audio, invoking striking images and stirring the imagination through her playful pieces.

It’s difficult to pin-point Chen’s style – surely the sign of an interesting artist – which adds a pinch of exciting, biting electronica to the lush, sometimes minimalist melodies, of post-classical pianism. Now based in London, Chen draws on emotional associations, rooting her work in time and place.

Chen performs across the globe, with performance highlights including the Royal Albert Hall’s Steinway Series, Milano Piano City Midnight Main Stage, Her Majesty’s Theatre Adelaide, Kulturhuset Najaden Concert Hall and the National Theatre of Korea.

Her recent commissions and syncs include BBC Sounds, BBC Concert Orchestra, Gucci Archive, London Fashion Week, Shanghai Fashion Week, and The Joffrey Ballet in Chicago.

Belle’s music has been streamed 25 million times.

“Beautiful pieces and flawless execution… A delightful surprise for all of your senses.” – Headphone Commute
