Celebrated violinist Ning Feng will be named as artist-in-residence during the 2023-24 season of the China NCPA Orchestra. He will give master classes and recitals during the season, including his recital on Sept 17 featuring Bach's sonatas and partitas and a concert with conductor Zhang Xian, who is the music director of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, performing violin concertos by Brahms and Karl Goldmark on Sept 27 and 28.

"I have a long relationship with the NCPA. When it opened in 2007, I was one of the musicians playing during its opening concert," says Ning, whose career was rising in 2007. In September 2006, Ning won the first prize, as well as two other special prizes, at the prestigious 51st Paganini International Violin Competition in Genoa, Italy.

"I have returned to the NCPA and performed with the China NCPA Orchestra many times during the past decade, which feels like coming home," says Ning, whose wife was a cellist with the China NCPA Orchestra.
