We are very happy to introduce our newest client, violinist Yijia Zhang!
Yijia was born and raised in China and started playing the violin at the age of five years old and gave his first performance when he was just seven. He was selected as one of Asian Future Star Musicians and made his western debut with the Cazadero Festival Orchestra in San Francisco aged seventeen.
Despite only just having graduated from the Royal Academy of Music, Yijia has already performed in some of the world’s leading concert halls including the Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, and the National Centre for Performing Arts, Beijing. He is also the director of the Chinese charity concert series Under the Same Sky in Anhui Province, staging concerts in support of underprivileged youths.
We are looking forward to working with Yijia on the release of his exciting debut album, Tango Embrace in October 2015. The disk is a collection of classic tango pieces by renowned Argentinian tango composer Astor Piazzolla and features contributions from six other accomplished musicians including Carl Smith, one of the original founders of the musical STOMP. Post-production was completed by mastering engineer Ray Staff, best known for his work with Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and Muse.
