Debut with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra
Feng debuts with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra this month, performing alongside conductor Dima Slobodeniouk in three concerts from 3 May. Feng plays Mendelssohn Violin Concerto at the Bergen Performing Arts Center on 3 May, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center on 5 May and the Mayo Performing Arts Center on 6 May.
Feng also returns to the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra for one concert on 17 May with conductor Yeruham Scharovsky. He performs Lalo Symphonie Espagnole, which he previously recorded for his album Apasionado:
“Ning Feng does impress with technical ability. But above all, it is his full and warm tone that enriches the CD’s collected virtuosic Spanish showpieces, from composers such as Sarasate and Lalo, with powerful passion and romantic lyricism.”
In China, Feng performs at the opening gala of the NCPA May Festival on 9 May, performing repertoire such as J.S. Bach Double Violin Concerto, Vivald Concerto in B minor for Four Violins and Paganini 24 Caprices. The NCPA May Festival is now in its tenth year and in 2018 plays host to ensembles such as Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Europa Galante.
