• Reviews from other artists:

It is quite staggering to hear what he can achieve with effectively only four ‘fingers’ which is what his two mallets in each hand equate to as opposed to what can be achieved by a violinist whose bow can so easily slide from one note to another. One might think that pace would suffer as a result of having only four ‘fingers’ to use and the time it takes to select each note. In fact Ja Hsieh’s dexterity coupled with his undoubted expertise on his chosen instrument eliminate this problem and the music flows in the most scintillatingly gorgeous way. Just how amazing this young musician is can be gleaned from the way he tackles the Double Presto from Partita I in which he is able to cover so many notes in breathtaking fashion.

— Steve Arloff, MusicWeb International


Ja Hsieh is an amazing musician who plays percussion with passion, dexterity and precision. I love his playing and his performances are always spellbinding. Ja Hsieh’s rendition of my timpani concerto Raise the Roof was fabulous and I will never forget it!

— Michael Daugherty, Grammy-Award-Winning Composer

Ja Hsieh is one of the best of the new generation of mallet players. His performances are exciting and full of live and have a high level of clarity and technique. A pleasure to listen his recordings and performances.

— Ney Rosauro, World-Renowned Percussionist

Ja Hsieh plays music with a thoughtful passion informed by a thorough knowledge of each of the many idioms he is capable of performing. His technique, honed by years of dedicated personal study with excellent teachers, is always flawless and his ability to convey the meaning of each piece of repertoire is exemplary.

— Timothy Salzman, Professor of Music and Conductor, University of Washington Wind Ensemble
