In 2019 her debut album was released on Uni-versal Music Group’s Gold Label and featured in Gramophone Magazine as one of the most exciting new releases. The San Diego Tribune said, “…this recording reveals a daz-zling artist with an astonishing range of colors at her disposal.”Born in Shenzhen, China, Luo began piano lessons at age five and gave her debut recital in Hong Kong at age six. Winner of numerous compe-titions in China, Luo also claimed first prize in the Chopin Interna-tional Competition for Young Artists and the Rachmaninov International Piano Competition for Young Artists.
