Renowned cellist Chu Yibing held a solo concert at the Music Hall of the National Library Art Center last Thursday.

Teaming up with acclaimed Hong Kong pianist Cheng Wai, Chu captivated listeners with a carefully curated selection of seven French compositions by illustrious composers such as Messiaen, Franck, Fauré, Debussy, Françaix, and Ravel. The performers brought out the unique charm of each piece through their profound understanding of the skills they each mastered.

Chu Yibing, the cellist, has a special connection with France. Spending his formative years from 17 to 23 in France, he became the first Chinese student to be admitted to the Paris National Superior Conservatory of Music, studying under the guidance of the French master Maurice Gendron. In 1986, he was awarded several prizes in an international cello competition in Geneva, which made him the first Chinese cellist to win an international competition.

Returning to China in 2004, Chu embarked on a mission to share his passion for music and promote music education throughout the country. His extensive nationwide tours and diverse concert formats have earned him widespread acclaim from music enthusiasts worldwide, solidifying his reputation as a luminary in the realm of classical music.
