Come January 12, catch contrasting works in a concert that features cellist Qin Li-Wei under the direction of Lan Shui at the Esplanade Concert Hall. Written in the 1760s and lost for 200 years, Haydn’s Cello Concerto No.1 has become a staple of the cello repertoire since its rediscovery in 1961. On the other hand, Bruckner’s heroic Third Symphony, sometimes called the “Wagner Symphony”, exists in at least six versions.
An exclusive Universal Music China Artist, Qin Li-Wei has appeared all over the world as a soloist and as a chamber musician. After achieving great success at the 11th Tchaikovsky International Competition where he was awarded the Silver Medal, Li-Wei has since won the First Prize in the prestigious 2001 Naumburg Competition in New York. “A superbly stylish, raptly intuitive performer ” (Gramophone Magazine, January 2015) was the description of the cellist’s Elgar and Walton concerti recording with the London Philharmonic.
