Yang Liu is the winner of China’s National Violin Competition and a prize winner of the Twelfth International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. He has performed as a soloist with some of the world’s leading orchestras including The Cincinnati, Atlanta and St. Louis Symphony Orchestras and the Danish Royal Odense Philharmonic to name a few.

His award winning album “Song of Nostalgia” showcases his virtuosity and musicality. His repertoire ranges from baroque to the most contemporary works.

Born in Qingdao, China, Yang studied at the Central Conservatory in Beijing and, after emigrating to the United States, he furthered his studies at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music with Kurt Sasmannshaus and Dorothy Delay.

Making his first appearance with the Strings in 2005, Yang is returning for the fourth time to perform the one and only violin concerto of Beethoven. The Strings will add Haydn’s final Symphony, No. 104 -the “London”.
