Chen performed the Yellow River Concerto, which he also performed as a soloist at the opening ceremony of the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, marking the first performance by a Taiwanese pianist at the Bowl.

Rising to prominence in the United States in recent years, Chen was invited to perform at the newly opened Bing Concert Hall in Stanford University in February.

In March, he became the first piano soloist to perform at the inaugural season of the brand new Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, for which tickets completely sold out four months in advance.

In addition to his solo recitals and orchestral performances of classical repertoire, Chen has devoted much effort to collaboration and premiering new solo and piano concerto works.

Some of his critically-acclaimed piano concerto compositions are the Love River Concerto, which centers on his fondness for a river in Taiwan, and the Winter Trilogy, written to celebrate the Hakka heritage. Chen performed both at the Lincoln Center in New York, the Sydney Opera House, and the Hong Kong Cultural Center.

Chen has been the recipient of various distinguished awards and honors, including Taiwan's Golden Melody Awards for Best Performance and for Best Album.
