Wen-Sinn Yang, who as a chamber musician and a soloist is numbered among the most versatile artistic personalities, became first solo cellist of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks in 1989 at the age of 24 years, a position which he gave up in 2005 in favor of a professorship at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich.

In 1991 he won first prize at the Geneva International Music Competition. Since then he has been a welcome guest artist on the concert podium and at music festivals in Europe and Asia. As a soloist he has performed with conductors such as Sir Colin Davis, Lorin Maazel and Mariss Jansons.

His very broad-ranging repertoire is documented in more than 20 CD recordings. In addition to the standard repertoire such as the concertos of Boccherini, Haydn and Dvořák, Yang has also recorded lesser known virtuoso cello and chamber music, especially from the 20th century, including works by François Servais, Carl Davidoff, Alfredo Piatti and Julius Klengel.

His performance of the Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello by J.S. Bach have also appeared on DVD in collaboration with Bavarian Radio and Television.

Wen-Sinn Yang is a member of the Klaviertrios Then-Bergh – Yang – Schäfer.
