Alvin Wong tells the stories of Chinese diaspora with his cello.
Hailed by the press for his ‘remarkable technical skills’, cellist Alvin Wong has performed across continents in celebrated venues such as Carnegie Hall, Seoul Arts Center and Hong Kong Cultural Centre. He has collaborated with eminent musicians, premiered concertos and cello works by Chinese, Australian and American composers; and gives regular master classes in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and across the U.S.
In his solo debut at Melbourne Recital Centre Alvin Wong tells the stories of Chinese diaspora with his cello. Generations of Chinese composers left their homeland to pursue their musical dreams in the West, where they developed their voice while reconciling the multiplicity of their identity. Music that paints pictures of deeply personal journeys is vividly captured in these expressive and heartfelt solo cello works.
This concert is supported by Hengyi Pacific, Dr. Anthony Chiu and generous donors of the Australian Cultural Fund.
