“Chiyan Wong is an exciting, original and thoughtful pianist. Nothing sounds ‘bought in’; everything sounds freshly but not self-consciously conceived.” – Stephen Hough
“Chiyan Wong has a sincerity as a person which he applies to his music-making, and that is very rare these days. I am sure he will continue to grow as a real artist.” – Kun-Woo Paik
