Based in Berlin and enjoying a global career, Chinese violinist Ning Feng has developed a reputation internationally as an artist of great lyricism and emotional transparency, displaying tremendous bravura and awe-inspiring technical accomplishment. The recipient of prizes at the Hanover International, Queen Elisabeth and Yehudi Menuhin International violin competitions, he won first prize in the International Paganini Competition in 2006. His recent successes have included debuts with the LA Philharmonic as part of the Chinese New Year celebrations, with the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchester/Iván Fischer as part of the Konzerthaus's Bernstein celebrations, and a major European tour with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra/van Zweden which included performances in Berlin, London, Zurich and at the Musikverein, Vienna. Highlights of Ning’s 2015/16 season include debuts with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony/Grazinyte-Tyla and at the Schubertiade with Igor Levit, and return engagements with the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchester/ Ivan Fischer, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic/Weilerstein, Western Australian Symphony/Yamada and Auckland Philharmonia orchestras. Ning Feng plays a 1721 Stradivari violin, known as the ‘MacMillan’, on private loan, kindly arranged by Premiere Performances of Hong Kong, and plays on strings by Thomastik-Infeld, Vienna.
