Yu Hongmei

Yu Hongmei

Los Angeles premiere

"This master musician displays dazzling skill and tremendous charm." Fanfare

This rare performance showcases the crystalline tones and lucid expressions of the Chinese erhu -- a two-string bowed instrument -- as played by one of its premier exponents, Yu Hongmei. A celebrated soloist with the Chinese National Traditional Orchestra and other ensembles, Yu is the first erhuist to receive the coveted Pro Musicis International Award, and has since performed to great acclaim at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and The Kennedy Center. She is joined this evening by Zhi Ming Han (yangqin) and Cynthia Hsiang (piano) for a program of classical Chinese and European repertoire.
