陳盤安(1934生),鋼琴家、音樂教育家。出生於臺北市大正町五條通(今林森北路)。家世顯赫,父執輩為日治時期臺籍金融精英。但叔父陳炘於二二八事件中下落不明,致使陳家受到極大影響。17歲就讀臺中縣立大甲中學高中部(今臺中市立大甲高級中學)時,成為戴逢祈門生。1963年考入武藏野音樂大學鋼琴主修,1968年畢業於武藏野音樂大學研究所。爾後返臺,先後專任於實踐家政專科學校(今實踐大學)與國立臺灣藝術專科學校(今臺灣藝術大學),但1978年因妻子病危之故,又返日,任東邦音樂大學及東邦短期音樂大學鋼琴教師。直到1992年,又受邀為國立中山大學音樂學系代系主任而返臺定居。陳盤安為人低調謙卑,受其照顧與提攜之學子眾多,直至2019年仍堅持於他所熱愛的教育崗位上。

CHEN Pan-An (b. 1934), pianist and music educator. Chen was born into a prominent family on Taishōchō (now Linsen North Road) in Taipei City. Many of the relatives in his father’s generation were elitist financiers in Taiwan during the Japanese occupation. The misfortune of his uncle, Chen Xin missing during the February 28 Incident, greatly influenced the family. At the age of 17, he entered Dajia High School (now Taichung Municipal Dajia Senior High School), and studied under the tutelage of Feng-Chi Tai. In 1963, he took an examination to study piano at Musashino onngaku daigaku and graduated from the Graduate Institute of Music of Musashino onngaku daigaku in 1968. Returning to Taiwan, he first taught at Shih Chien School of Home Economics (now Shih Chien University) and National Taiwan Academy of Arts (now National Taiwan University of Arts). Due to the severe physical illness of his wife, he resigned his teaching position and returned to Japan in 1978 and taught piano at Toho College of Music and Toho Junior College of Music. It was not until 1992 that he was invited to serve as the Acting Chair of the Department of Music at National Sun Yat-Sen University and stayed permanently in Taiwan. Chen is a humble person and keeps low profile. A great number of students in Taiwan studied under his guidance and patronage. Up to 2019, he continues teaching piano, his life-long passion.
