Described by the Guardian as a performer of “fearless intensity”, former ECHO Rising Star Tamsin Waley-Cohen has established herself as one of the most insightful and versatile young British violinists.

Japan-based Russian pianist Irina Mejoueva studied at Gnessin Institute of Music in Moscow, under pianist Vladimir Tropp. She won first prize at the Eduard Flipse Piano Competition in 1992, which was followed by numerous performance invitations throughout the Europe. After She had settled in Japan, she made many recordings for Wakabayashi Koubou among which her recording of Chopin’s Nocturnes was awarded Japan’s “The Record Academy Prize” in 2010. Her upcoming recital features a program of the romanticism era, focusing on Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Scriabin and Medtner.


Brimful of energy, Antje Weithaas brings her compelling musical intelligence and technical mastery to every detail of the music. She won the Kreisler Competition in Graz in 1987 and the Bach Competition in Leipzig in 1988, as well as the Hanover International Violin Competition in 1991. In her upcoming concert, Weithaas is playing Ysaÿe’s sonatas together with the solo sonatas and partitas of J. S. Bach, and placing them in direct contrast with one another.


Violinist Tseng Yu-Chien is rapidly building an international reputation as an emerging young soloist of enormous promise. Graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music, his notable competition wins include the gold-standard Tchaikovsky Competition (2015), Singapore International Violin Competition (2015), and Sarasate International Competition in Pamplona (2009). On his upcoming concert, he will be featuring a selective repertoire that reveals his full capability in violin playing.

In his upcoming concert, Barry pairs Tchaikovsky’s principal works for solo piano:The Seasons, and Mussorgsky’s warhorse Pictures at An Exhibition.


Born in Paris, Dalberto was introduced to Vlado Perlemuter, a favorite pupil of the late Alfred Cortot and entered the Paris Conservatoire where he completed his studies. During that time, he won the first Mozart Competition in Salzburg, the Clara Haskil Prize and, in 1978, first prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition.

About Jessie J

It’s been eight years since Jessie J burst onto the scene with smash hits ‘Do It Like a Dude’ and ‘Price Tag,’’, the latter topping the charts in 19 countries worldwide. She’s since gone on to perform at some of the biggest venues and festivals across the globe, collecting an enormous array of awards and collaborating with the likes of Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj in the process.

Earlier this year, Jessie won the hearts of Chinese fans across the country and sparked an explosion of headlines around the globe as she became the first European artist to triumph on Singer, one of China’s biggest music contests. Having never finished outside the top three over the course of the TV show, Jessie scooped the title after wowing audiences with her pitch-perfect delivery and down-to-earth personality – both of which she’ll now be bringing to the live stage in China. The announcement of Jessie J’s concert in Mainland China comes hot on the heels of the release of her fourth studio album, entitled R.O.S.E., which came with an epic four-part rollout: R.O.S.E. (Realisations) came out May 22, R.O.S.E (Obsessions) on May 23, R.O.S.E. (Sex) May 24, and R.O.S.E. (Empowerment) on May 25.
