Winner of the prestigious ECHO Klassik Best Up-and-Coming Artist Award 2014 and the Annual Prize of the German Record Critics 2014 for her Naxos recordings of the Mendelssohn Violin Concertos and Complete Music for Violin by Sarasate, Tianwa Yang is referred to as “an unquestioned master of the violin” by American Record Guide who “rises above her competition” (Fanfare), while quickly establishing herself as a leading international performer and recording artist. The young violinist, a resident of Germany and heralded by the Detroit News as “the most important violinist to come on the scene in many a year,” has debuted with such major orchestras as the Detroit, Seattle, Baltimore, Nashville, Kansas City, Pacific, Toledo, SWR Baden Baden Freiburg, and New Zealand Symphonies, in addition to the MDR Sinfonieorchester-Leipzig, Bayerisches Staatsorchester, Orchestre National d'Île de France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Hong Kong Sinfonietta and the Hong Kong, Malaysia, Buffalo, BBC, Deutsche Radio, Erfurt, Warsaw and Royal Liverpool Philharmonics. Ms. Yang has performed under the baton of renowned conductors Marc Albrecht, Andreas Delfs, JoAnn Falletta, Giancarlo Guerrero , Günther Herbig, Yoel Levi, Carlos Miguel Prieto, Gerard Schwarz, Vassily Sinaisky amongst others. Other international engagements include those at the Ravinia Festival, Virginia Arts Festival, Schwetzinger Festival, London’s Wigmore Hall, Paris’ Salle Pleyel, New York’s Rose Theater, Lincoln Center, and Leipzig’s Gewandhaus. Ms. Yang has also given live concert broadcasts from the Schwetzingen Festival, broadcast by the SWR Stuttgart; from the Berlin Philharmonic Hall, broadcast by Deutschlandradio; and from the Montpellier Festival, broadcast by Radio France.
As a critically acclaimed recording artist for Naxos, Ms. Yang most recently released the Violin Concertos by Castelnuovo-Tedesco recorded with the SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg and the complete Solo Sonatas by Eugene Ysaye which immediately won several awards. Her Mendelssohn Violin Concertos album earned her the title “one of the best new violinists of the new century” by Musicweb-International. Of her previously released recordings of Pablo de Sarasate’s complete works for violin as an eight disc set, David Hurwitz of Classics Today calls Ms. Yang a “sensationally talented violinist,” while All Things Strings speaks of her “stunning effortless virtuosity” and “uncanny affinity for Spanish music “. The Complete works for violin and piano by Wolfgang Rihm was released in late 2012, and she has also recorded Piazzolla’s Las 4 Estaciones Porteñas with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and the Vivaldi/Piazzolla Eight Seasons performed with her own ensemble.
Ms. Yang continues to build her growing reputation in concert halls across Europe, Australasia and North America. Most recently, she debuted with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Edmonton Symphony adding this Canadian orchestra to her 2012 Canadian debut performances in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Calgary with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta. She debuted in New York’s Rose Theater as part of that same 2012 tour. Upcoming debuts include those with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, The Florida Orchestra, the Vancouver and Winnipeg Symphonies, and Guerzenich Orchestra, Cologne.
Raised in the Chinese capital city, Ms. Yang began studying violin at the age of four. Demonstrating unquestionable ability, Ms. Yang won six competitions as a young child. At the age of ten she was accepted to study at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing as a student of Lin Yaoji. Within one year, Hong Kong media described the young artist as “A Pride of China.” Ms. Yang recorded the 24 Paganini Caprices at the age of thirteen, making her the youngest artist to release the works. In 2003 Ms. Yang was awarded a scholarship by the German Academic Exchange Service to study chamber music in Germany, marking the beginning of her European career.
Ms. Yang has won several awards during her career including the Volkswagen Foundation prize “Star of Tomorrow” by Seiji Ozawa and the 2006 “Prix Montblanc.” She is the recipient of the much coveted ECHO Klassik Award for Best Up-and-Coming Artist 2014. She is Professor of Violin at the University of the Arts, Bern, Switzerland and is grateful to Lin Yaoji, Jörg-Wolfgang Jahn and Anner Bylsma for the musical insight and support they have offered throughout her career.
She performs on a Guarneri del Gesu (1730) on kind loan from Mr. Kei Mei Rin in Singapore.
Leif Segerstam, conductor
“I have rarely heard the BBCSO perform Bruckner so well since the days of Günter Wand. Right from the very opening, at a simple gesture from Leif Segerstam, a closed fist suddenly opened, pianissimo string tremolo and horns came in precisely together. This is so rare, as the horns usually take a moment to sound and the opening can often be ragged. And then, after the statement of the theme in the bass, the oboe comments with a falling phrase, encouraged by Segerstam with open arms to expand its expressive potential towards the deepest of tragic laments, and it was apparent that this performance would endow its encounter with this music with widest spectrum of profound emotion.”
Bruckner’s 8th Symphony / BBC Symphony Orchestra, London – reviewer Ken Ward: Backtrack, 1st March 2015
Leif Segerstam is recognised internationally. Born in 1944, he is one of the most versatile and interesting musical talents from the Nordic countries, studying violin, piano, composition and conducting at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki before taking a post-graduate course at New York’s Juilliard School of Music. He is Chief Conductor Emeritus of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra in gratitude for his supremely successful 12-year period as Chief Conductor and holds honorary titles with Malmö Opera, the Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz in Germany following extremely notable periods as chief conductor with both orchestras, too. He has also held positions as Chief Conductor of the Austrian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra as well as Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Royal Swedish Opera, later also re-appointed as Chief Conductor, and Director of Finnish National Opera. He is currently chief conductor of the Turku Philharmonic Orchestra. Amongst many others he conducts at Wiener Staatsoper, the Chicago Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Toronto Symphony, Detroit Symphony, NHK Symphony Orchestra, in London with the Philharmonia, London Symphony and BBC Symphony orchestras, St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and he is one of the most important ambassadors for Sibelius’s 2015 anniversary year.
Leif Segerstam began his conducting career in the opera houses of Helsinki, Stockholm and Berlin with guest appearances that have included the Metropolitan New York, La Scala, Covent Garden, Teatro Colon, Cologne, Geneva, Hamburg, Munich, the Salzburg Festival and a frequent conductor at the Savolinna Festival. In recent seasons he has often conducted at the Wiener Staatsoper in “Salome” (“Strauss’s exotic score, whilst laden with full blooded crescendos, also contains moments of purity and subtlety, which Leif Segerstam expressed without sacrificing the quest for dramatic intensity. Fortissimos were terrifying, and Jochanaan’s prophetic passages were moments of hypnotic beauty.” Andrew Gosling - Classical Source, 7th June 2010) and “Lohengrin”, also Britten’s “Peter Grimes” at Vlaamse Oper, “Der Rosenkavalier” for Bayerische Staatsoper and “La Bohème” in Helsinki. In Malmö he has, or will, conduct Parsifal, Zauberflöte, La Wally, Manon, Der Rosenkavalier, Aida and Tannhäuser.
Leif Segerstam’s many recordings are recognised by critics and public alike as outstanding amongst modern interpretations. As well as works by contemporary composers his CDs include the complete symphonies of Mahler, Sibelius and Nielsen with the Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Scriabin and Schnittke with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Brahms with the Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz plus Reger and Alan Pettersson with the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra. In Pettersson’s anniversary year he conducted the composer’s 7th symphony with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and opened Turku’s year as European City of Culture in January 2011 with the Turku Philharmonic in a performance of Mahler’s 2nd Symphony.
Leif Segerstam has shown exceptional creativity as a composer throughout his career and currently written 294 symphonies, 29 string quartets, 11 violin and 4 piano concerti alongside chamber and vocal music, notably developing a free-pulsative style in Rosenkranz form for his later symphonies which are performed without conductor.
Leif Segerstam was proud to be Professor of Conducting at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki for many years and several of his pupils now follow successful careers. He was awarded the 1999 Nordic Council Music Prize for his work “as a tireless champion of Scandinavian music” and the Swedish Cultural Foundation’s Prize for Music in 2003. In 2004 he was given the annual Finnish State Prize for Music and in 2005 the highly esteemed Sibelius Medal. Leif Segerstam is devoted to his five children and, currently, six grandchildren.
