熊韋皓畢業於英國皇家音樂學院鋼琴系,並曾於古鍵琴及管風琴的彈奏上受過指導。他特別熱衷於巴哈的音樂,對編曲亦有濃厚興趣,迄今為鋼琴改編了七首原屬管風琴、小提琴及清唱劇的音樂並印成了曲集。熊氏活躍於室樂演奏,是「時.刻室樂」的成員之一;另外亦不時會作獨奏演出,如去年就彈了整套的二聲部及三聲部練習曲。演出以外,熊氏亦有為網站 Gooclass (medium.com/gooclass),樂人谷(www.musicvalley.com.hk)及音樂雜誌Vantage(www.vantagemusic.org/magazine)寫專欄。


Stephen Hung is primarily a pianist with a keen interest in J. S. Bach’s music and Baroque music in general. He studied with Colin Stone and Daniel-Ben Pienaar at London’s Royal Academy of Music and also had lessons on the harpsichord and the organ there. During his time at the Royal Academy, he was awarded the Harriet Cohen Bach Prize and multiple academic prizes. Since graduating in 2013, he has transcribed and published a collection of Bach's organ, choral and violin pieces for the piano. Hung performs regularly, both as a soloist and as a member of the chamber music group the TimeCrafters. Some of the recital programmes he played over the years include the Art of Fugue, the complete Two-part and Three-part Inventions, and book two of the Well-Tempered Clavier. Meanwhile, the unorthodox setting of the concerts with the TimeCrafters displays the more versatile aspects of Hung’s musicianship, including improvisation and parody.

Aside from performing, Hung is a columnist for the website ‘Gooclass’ (medium.com/gooclass). He has previously written reviews, interviews and articles for the magazines ‘Artplus’ and ‘Vantage’.
