                                          龔天鵬    Peng-Peng Gong




                                               Born in 1992, Chinese composer and pianist Peng-Peng Gong (龔天鵬) has completed ten symphonies as of 2018 and is currently in his fourth season as Resident Composer for the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra after graduating from the Juilliard School in 2014. His ninth symphony inaugurated the 19th Shanghai International Arts Festival while his tenth was co-commissioned and premiered by the Philadelphia Orchestra. 

                                                He began his professional life in 2003 as a piano wunderkind while studying at The Juilliard School's Pre-College Division with pianist Yoheved Kaplinsky and composer Andrew Thomas after winning national competitions in China. As a pianist he was signed to the prestigious Opus 3 Artists and was offered numerous solo and orchestral engagements with major orchestras at prominent venues until the age of 15, when the emotional blow from China's 2008 Sichuan Great Earthquake made him abandon his early performing career and become a full-time composer. His first symphony, a requiem completed three months after the earthquake, was his first published work with Lauren Keiser Music Publishing with whom he currently has an exclusive publishing contract. He went on to study at Juilliard's composition department with Samuel Adler, won eight consecutive ASCAP Morton Gould Awards, and has been appointed Composer-in-Residence for the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra since 2014, producing a full concert of complete new works for every season to popular and critical acclaim. All his published works has been acquired by libraries of major music conservatories, including his alma mater Juilliard.  

                                                Adopting a tonal and neo-romantic style from his longtime passion and expertise for the Late-Romantic legacy, his current oeuvre include 10 symphonies, an oratorio, three piano concerti, a viola concerto, chamber music, solo piano music and other orchestral pieces.  He made his film-scoring debut for renowned author Liu Zhenyun's novel-adopted drama film, Someone to Talk To (2015). In 2018, he was awarded a May First Labor's Medal from the Shanghai Federation of Trade Unions as an official recognition of his contributions to the city's cultural life.
