Vienna Orchestra to grace Shenzhen Poly Theater on May 12


Cornelius Meister

Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra will present Schubert’s overture to “Die Zauberharfe” and “Symphony No. 9” and Kabalevsky’s “Fantasy in F Minor After ‘Schubert D 940,’ for Piano and Orchestra” in May. U.S. pianist Claire Huangci will appear as a soloist and German conductor Cornelius Meister will wield the baton.

Over the years, Huangci has succeeded in establishing herself as a highly respected artist, leaving behind her role of the celebrated child prodigy who once gave a private concert for Bill Clinton at the age of 10. Having completed four years of study at the Curtis Institute of Music, Huangci continued her music education in Germany at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media. Salzburger Nachrichten commented that Huangci captivates audiences with her “radiant virtuosity, artistic sensitivity, keen interactive sense and subtle auditory dramaturgy.”

Meister also studied at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media. In September 2010, he became chief conductor and artistic director of the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. With the orchestra, he has commercially recorded music of Gottfried von Einem and of Béla Bartók. In June 2016, Meister was named the next general music director of the Stuttgart State Opera and of the Stuttgart State Orchestra, effective in the 2018-2019 season, with an initial contract of six seasons.
