Yifen Chen - BAROQUE flute
Yifen Chen, baroque flautist, founder of Taiwan Early Music Society and Formosa Baroque.
Yifen Chen was born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. After graduating from the National Taipei University she travelled to the United States where she studied in the Oberlin Conservatory and later to the Netherlands where she studied with Barthold Kuijken at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.
In both countries she started giving chamber music concerts and recitals. In 1996 she moved to Paris and since then collaborated with the most important baroque orchestras including Le Concert des Nations under the direction of Jordi Savall, Europa Galante, Ricercar Consort, La Petite Bande, Les Talens Lyriques, Balthasar Neumann and Les Arts Florissants. With these orchestras she performed throughout the world, especially in Europe, Japan, Taiwan, United States of America.
In the past thirty years, Yifen has lived in France, a stronghold of the early music revival, and dedicated herself to performing professionally and her academic studies in the US and Europe. Starting in 2010, she dedicated her many years of experience to promoting baroque music in Taiwan. First she gave a concert series of 18th -century court music in Taipei and Kaohsiung: baroque flute duets, starting a trend of european court music appreciation. Later she spread this activity to other places in Taiwan, including the remote Hualien, Taitung and Pintong, refreshing the public’s understanding with a blend of concerts and lectures on topics such as cantatas and operas, as well as period instruments and performing techniques.
In 2016, Yifen gathered many Taiwanese performers of younger generations currently living and studying in Europe to form “Formosa baroque” whose members come not only from Asia, but China, Japan, and Korea. In addition, the orchestra boasts many important European performers who further enhance its already considerable profile.
In 2016 the “Taiwan Early Music Society ”was established to produce concerts and associated activities.
In future, Yifen hopes to enhance connections with other baroque groups in France, so as to increase cultural exchanges internationally.
