A Zheng Concert featuring a Virtuoso sans pareil

Wang Zhongshan is esteemed as the 'ultimate fast hand' and 'a true master of the zheng world' with his pyrotechnic playing of the instrument and confident flair. In this reprisal performance with the HKCO, he will be bringing to the audience of Hong Kong several classics in the zheng repertoire, such as Qin River on My Mind, Sad Memories of Lin'an, Dance of the Yi's, Xiang Yu – the Overlord of Chu. The concert will be a feast for the eye as well, as the audience can witness his amazing fingering and interpretation on the plucked strings. He will also lead the local group, the Hong Kong Professional Zheng Ensemble, in an eye-opening demonstration of the bright future for zheng music in Hong Kong!
