Eduardo Portal - conductor.
Ning Feng - violin.
Mendelssohn: Overture: Ruy Blas;
Beethoven: Violin Concerto;
Mendelssohn: Symphony No.3 'Scottish'.
We are delighted to welcome back Ning Feng, who has been adopted as a virtual Kiwi since winning the Michael Hill International Violin Competition in 2005. He will play Beethoven’s Violin Concerto - one of the cornerstones of the violin repertoire and one of the composer’s most popular works. This performance by Ning Feng will be an unforgettable rendition of this masterwork for the instrument.
“[Ning Feng] makes an even more fascinating impression in the lyrical passages, with tenderly nuanced structures full of delicate protractions, promises and refusals. [He] is able to change virtuosity into a pure desire for life.” - Isabel Herzfeld, Department: Berlin Culture
