“The very first time I heard a Y. Chen cello was i. The exhibition of the 2016 Piatigorsky International Cello Festival in Los Angeles. The only Chinese cello exhibited, Y. Chen stood out from cellos made by over 20 Western luthiers and caught almost every master cellists’ eyes! My first impression to Y. Chen cello was its astonishing tone and power. Although it was a newly made cello, Y. Chen cello has a sweet sound in higher register, supported by vigorous lower register, which surprised me greatly. Now the Y. Chen cello I own has almost the same rate of appearance as my Guadagnini! I’ve enjoyed the pleasure that my Y. Chen cello brought to be during my recent tour in Germany and Australia. It would be nice to purchase such a famous old cello as Stradivari, Guarneri, and Guadagnini under a great financial condition. Under other conditions, however, Y. Chen would become the best partner of all cellist considering it’s extraordinary quality and stability. I’ve been constantly performing on this cello, and I sincerely recommend it to you! I hope it surprises you as much as it has surprised me!”
