Feng returns to the Hong Kong Philharmonic and China Philharmonic
Feng returns to Hong Kong in April for three concerts with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. Feng joins the orchestra and conductor Long Yu at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre to perform Bruch Scottish Fantasy on 6, 7, and 8 April.
Feng recently performe the work with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in January 2018 to a great critical reception:
“Like a skater turning exquisite pirouetted on the thinnest ice, Feng etched out the music’s shivering tremolo and fragile melody with immaculate intonation and bow control”
Times, January 2018
The following week, Feng joins the China Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor David Stern at Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall on 14 April. Feng plays Bernstein Serenade, after Plato’s Symposium, which he played in March with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and conductor John Wilson, with critics praising his “precise and passionate account” (Herald Scotland).
Elsewhere in the month, Ning plays Shostakovich Violin Concerto No.1 with Yang Yang and the Hangzhou Philharmonic Orchestra on six European dates starting on 16 April at the Megaron Athens Concert Hall. Ning and the orchestra then perform in Thessaloniki, Sofia, Bucharest, and Belgrade before finishing in Pécs on 27 April 2018.
