VIOLIN 2001 : Fifth Prize
Violinist Ning Feng was born in Chengdu, China, and studied at the Sichuan Conservatory of Music and at the Royal Academy of Music, London. He is quickly developing a reputation as an artist of great lyricism and emotional transparency, displaying tremendous bravura and awe-inspiring technical accomplishment.

Ning won first prize in the 2006 International Violin Competition Premio Paganini and has also won prizes at the Hannover International Violin Competition, the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition, and also first prize at the Michael Hill International Violin Competition. Following his appearances as soloist with Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra on tour in Beijing in October 2010, Maestro Fischer said: “I found [Ning Feng] to be a special talent and an outstandingly musical artist. There is no doubt that he is a musician at the highest level and plays with genuine passion and a respect for the score. I recommend him without reservation.”

Upcoming dates for Ning’s 2011/12 season include concerts with the Hong Kong Philharmonic/Delfs, Galicia Symphony/Harth-Bedoya, NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover/Gullberg Jensen, Calgary Philharmonic/Minczuk and Orchestre National de Lyon/Foster. Festival appearances in summer 2011 included Gstaad, Annecy, Colmar and Bad Kissingen.

Ning Feng records for Channel Classics in the Netherlands. His most recent recording, Solo, featuring works by Paganini, Kreisler, Berio, Schnittke and others, received a first-class review by Audiophile Audition.

Ning Feng is based in Berlin and plays a Stefan-Peter Greiner violin (Bonn 2007).
