Ris­ing star vi­o­lin­ist to per­form with Mu­nich Phil

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Tai­wan’s ris­ing star vi­o­lin­ist Tseng Yu-chien ( ) will per­form along­side the Mu­nich Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra when the lat­ter holds two con­certs in Taipei in Novem­ber.

Led by Rus­sian con­duc­tor Valery Gergiev, the or­ches­tra will per­form at the Na­tional Con­cert Hall on Nov. 19 and 20, ac­cord­ing to Man­age­ment of New Arts (MNA), the event’s Tai­wan pro­moter.

The or­ches­tra will play Tchaikovsky’s Vi­o­lin Con­certo in D ma­jor, Op. 35 and Tchaikovsky’s Sym­pho- ny No.6 in B mi­nor, Op.74, “Pa­the­tique,” on Nov. 19, MNA said.

The fol­low­ing day, it will play Brahms’ Vi­o­lin Con­certo in D ma­jor, Op. 77 and Bruck­ner’s Sym­phony No. 4 in E Flat Ma­jor, “Ro­man­tic.”

Tseng, who gained fame af­ter win­ning the sil­ver medal in the vi­o­lin cat­e­gory of the 15th In­ter­na­tional Tchaikovsky Com­pe­ti­tion in July, will be the soloist of the two vi­o­lin con­cer­tos, MNA said.

The 20- year- old vi­o­lin­ist achieved the best-ever per­for­mance for Tai­wan in the com­pe­ti­tion in Moscow last month. There was no gold medal win­ner in the vi­o­lin cat­e­gory of the pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion this year.

Since Tseng’s vic­tory, Gergiev, who co-chaired the com­pe­ti­tion’s or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee, has praised the young mu­si­cian and had been dis­cussing with MNA the pos­si­bil­ity of in­clud­ing Tseng in the con­certs, said Niu Hsiao-hua ( ), head of MNA.

Niu said he hopes the con­certs will en­cour­age more young Tai­wanese tal­ents to work hard like Tseng.
