Ning Feng is recognised internationally as an artist of great lyricism, innate musicality and stunning virtuosity. Recent successes have included a return to Budapest Festival Orchestra with Iván Fischer in Budapest and on tour to China, tours with the HK Phil and Jaap van Zweden to Europe, Asia and Australia, a tour to China with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and Lawrence Foster as well as successful debuts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra and BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. In recital and chamber music Ning performs regularly with Igor Levit, amongst others, at many of the world’s major festivals and concert venues.
Highlights of his 2019/20 season include returns to the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra with Osmo Vänskä and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra with Xian Zhang. He will be giving his debuts with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Amsterdam Sinfonietta.
Ning records for Channel Classics and his new disc Virtuosismo featuring Paganini Violin Concerto no. 1 and Vieuxtemps Violin Concerto no. 4 was released in September 2019. His earlier recording of Bach’s complete solo works for violin was hailed by Gramophone as “the illusion of a freewheeling conversation projected from within that held me captive."
Ning 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.
