Ning Feng is an internationally recognised artist noted for his impeccable technique and silken tone.  The Berlin-based Chinese violinist performs across the globe with major orchestras, such as the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, and conductors such as Iván Fischer, Jaap van Zweden and Giancarlo Guerrero. He performs recitals and chamber music concerts at venues such as Concertgebouw Amsterdam and Wigmore Hall London, and has appeared at major festivals including Moritzburg and La Jolla Music Society.

Born in Chengdu, China, Feng studied at the Sichuan Conservatory of Music, the Hanns Eisler School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music.  Amongst his awards from numerous prestigious competitions, Feng won the Senior 2nd Prize at the Menuhin Competition 2000 and was a member of the jury for the Menuhin Competition London 2016.

Feng records for Channel Classics and has released numerous recordings, including Bach’s complete solo works for violin which were hailed by Gramophone as ‘unlike anyone else’s.’

Feng plays a 1721 Stradivari violin, known as the ‘MacMillan’, on private loan, kindly arranged by Premiere Performances of Hong Kong, and plays on strings by Thomastik-Infeld.

“Lord Menuhin was a legendary person who influenced so many people in the world.  With my being involved with the Menuhin Competition, I feel very much like that I am part of his legacy.”
