Renowned for her crossover styles between pop and traditional, as well as East meeting West, Erhu virtuoso Jessie HOU performed on major concert venues throughout China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, while regularly recorded with Chinese pop superstars Jacky CHEUNG, Andy LAU and Sandy LIN. In this special concert, she will be back to traditional roots, tackling a newly commissioned large scale Erhu concerto tailor made for her.

Le Soir states that “William WEI gets everyone's attention in the first movement; he expresses all the possibilities in the second movement; William burns all his passion and freedom in the music till the end.”, William WEI was a Laureate at the 2015 Queen Elisabeth Competition and the First Prize winner of the 2013 Thomas and Evon Cooper International Competition. To mark his debut with TCO, WEI will perform a Violin Concerto imbued with Oriental fantasy.

Two distinctive stringed instruments, two different artistic journeys, will be lit up with glory in a joint concert on wings of strings.
