"If you want to take Bach’s solo violin music to your heart, ... Feng’s recordings strike me as well-nigh ideal" Gramophone
“[Ning Feng] performed at the highest level and brought the public under his spell with his virtuosic playing and creative brilliance.” Weilburg

Following his breath-taking performance at the 47th HKAF, violinist Ning Feng returns to the Festival’s stage with a solo programme of Johann Sebastian Bach’s complete Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied violin. He is the first Chinese violinist to have recorded this complete set of works. Remarkably varied in terms of structure and emotional effect, Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas is considered not only a milestone in the violin literature but also “the Himalayas of violinists”, as once described by the legendary composer George Enescu. Ning Feng is recognised internationally as an artist of great lyricism, innate musicality and stunning virtuosity, and is taking on this paramount challenge. In response to his recent rendition of Bach’s Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin, Gramophone hailed him as “one of the few violinists who have demonstrated the theory’s rightness simply by the way he plays”. In his upcoming HKAF recital, Ning offers a rare opportunity for experiencing the full spectrum of this set of great works.
