Feng judges the centenary Menuhin Competition in London
Feng has been invited to sit on the jury of the 2016 Menuhin Competition, in a special edition of the competition celebrating the Centenary of Yehudi Menuhin’s birth, taking place across eleven days from 7 to 17 April in venues across London. In addition to judging the competition, Feng and his fellow jury members – which include Joji Hattori, Ray Chen, Julia Fischer and Tasmin Little among others – lead masterclasses, give performances and take part in lectures and other events celebrating the life of Menuhin. Feng won second prize in the competition in 2000.
Also in April, Feng returns to the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra, giving performances at Serbia’s Nomus Festival (19 April), and at Korarac Hall in Belgrade (20 April). Returning to play/direct, the performances repeat the programme he gave in Budapest back in February this year, which included Mozart Violin Concerto No.5, Sarasate Zigeunerweisen, Barber Adagio for Strings and Bartók Divertimento for String Orchestra.
