Los próximos días 5 y 6 de junio, Wenting Kang impartirá unas Clases Magistrales de Viola en el CSMA. Tendrán lugar en la Sala G. Abril del CSMA.
Chinese violist Wenting Kang appeared as an “excellent violist” who “possesses a dark glowing sound” in the New York Times after her performance in the Marlboro Music Festival tour performance at Carnegie Hall. Kang’s playing also has been lauded as “elegant”, “precise” as well as “pure”, «tone-passionate without ever losing a sense of control» in the Boston Musical Intelligencer.
Her debut CD recording with pianist Sergei Kvitko “Mosaic” was released in 2022. Among many positive reviews, Gramophone Magazine noted “Part of the allure is her golden and glowing tone but the subtlety of her shading is just as transfixing.” “Her technique is close to flawless” “A terrific programme in every way”. It has won the gold medal as recommended CD on the Melómano Magazine in Spain. Its tracks were selected to be on the “Best New Classical Music” playlist on Spotify as well as the “New Music Friday” playlist of American Society of Composers and Publishers.
Kang appeared as soloist collaborating with major orchestras such as Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid, Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Nagoya Philhamonic Orchestra working with renowned conductos including Ivor Bolton, Michiyoshi Inoue, and José María Moreno.
Kang studied at Central Conservatory in Beijing, the New England Conservatory in Boston, and, as a young soloist for further master degree at the Kronberg Academy in Germany, under the guidance of renowned teachers such as Nobuko Imai, Kim Kashkashian, Garth Knox, Donald Weilerstein, Miriam Fried, and Changhai Wang.
Currently, Kang is active as assistant professor for the international viola class of Nobuko Imai at the Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia in Madrid. Most recent, she opened her class as professor at Escuela Superior de Música Forum Musikae in Madrid in 2020. In recent years, Kang has taught masterclasses for viola and chamber music in prestigious institutions such as Conservatorium van Amsterdam and Franz Liszt Academy of Music. She was invited to give masterclasses in various festivals throughout Europe and Asia.
