Chinese violin virtuoso Angelo Xiang Yu is quickly building an international reputation as one of today’s most exciting and gifted young concert artists – praised for his maturity and profound musicality.
A recent graduate of the New England Conservatory, where he studied with Donald Weilerstein and Miriam Fried, Angelo is a former major prize winner at the Michael Hill and Wieniawski International Violin Competitions – and former 1st prize winner in the Senior Division of the Menuhin Competition.
Angelo’s recent orchestral engagements include performances with the San Francisco Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Houston Symphony, Shanghai Philharmonic, Auckland Philharmonia, Munich Chamber Orchestra and the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra – and summer festival performances at Chicago’s Grant Park Music Festival, the Verbier Festival, the Chamber Music Northwest, [email protected], the Aspen Music Festival – and the Ravinia and Sarasota Music Festivals.
He currently plays on a 1729 Antonio Stradivarius violin – on generous loan from an anonymous donor.
