26 year old Chinese violin virtuoso Jiafeng Chen is firmly establishing himself as one of the new generation’s most gifted young concert soloists.

A student of Jan Repko, Cho-Liang Lin and Ronald Copes at London’s Royal College of Music and the Juilliard School, Jiafeng is a former prize winner at the Sibelius, Wieniawski, Indianapolis, Menuhin and Queen Elisabeth International Violin Competitions.

His recent solo engagements include performances with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, Hallé Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra and the National Orchestra of Belgium.

He currently performs on a 1752 Nicolo Gagliano violin – on generous loan from a syndicate of private investors.
