ISOMURA BROTHERS China Tour - Recital at Renmin University Concert Hall

We have had an absolute blast of a tour in China!

We were invited to hold multiple Recitals, Seminars, Discussions, Masterclasses, Workshops by Universities in Beijng and Guangzhou. While also experiencing some great food and culture, and made friends with so many wonderful people in China!

The first event of the tour was a recital in the Renmin University Concert Hall, presented by the Capital Normal University Conservatory of Music.

We arrived in Beijing the day before and on the evening of the second day we held the concert. Renmin University is considered one of the largest universities in Beijing and their concert hall was absolutely fantastic. The tour concert programme featured the music of Japan, New Zealand and China and We had the opportunity to perform works by Gao Ping, Zhang Fei and Tang Xu with themselves in the audience!

They are such wonderful people and create such brilliant music! It is such an honour and a pleasure to perform and work with such established composers of our time.

This was also a very special concert not only because of these reasons. But also because we were giving the world premiere performance of a brand new work by A. Professor of the Central Conservatory of Music Beijing Yao Chen. Unfortunately Yao Chen could not make the recital due to university commitments but he had prepared a professional recording engineer to record this recital so he was able to hear his premiere soon after the performance.
