On tour in Asia & Australia with the Hong Kong Philharmonic
Feng reunites with Jaap van Zweden and the Hong Kong Philharmonic this month for an international tour of Asia and Australia, beginning at Seoul Arts Center on 16 April. Feng joins the orchestra to perform Bartók Violin Concerto No.2 in Seoul as well as at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and Osaka Symphony Hall. He and the orchestra also perform Mozart Violin Concerto No.4 at the Esplanade in Singapore and Melbourne’s Hamer Hall before finishing the tour at the Sydney Opera House.
This follows the orchestra’s highly successful European tour in 2015, wherein Feng made his London concerto debut performing the Beethoven Violin Concerto. The Times praised the performance:
“As the first bars of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto opened – so simple, so mild, so profound – the players visibly relaxed… Perhaps it was the confidence of knowing that their soloist, Ning Feng, had the music so fully under his skin and in his soul”
