A Talent Arriving from the East

A Talent Arriving from the East

While Portuguese music has been promoted to a greater or lesser extent across the Far East, Lisbon got treated to a talent from China. Yu Feng, a young 27 year old maestro, won the unanimous backing of a jury made up of great European maestros in the International Pedro de Freitas Branco Competition for Young Conductors, organized by the Foundation. “Yu Feng”, as the then director of the São Carlos National Theatre wrote, “is a natural, intelligent, vibrant and lyrical musician. Music lives in him and he displays that fully: in gesture, look, that feline posture. Everything is eloquent within the purpose of generating musical impulses that the orchestra almost intuitively captures. His rehearsal work is one of the most convincing demonstrations of the universality of musical language that I have ever witnessed.”
