Wenting Kang

Chinese violist Wenting Kang appeared as an “excellent violist” who “possesses a dark glowing sound” in the New York Times after her 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.

Ms. Kang appeared as soloist collaborating with major orchestras such as Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid, Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra working with renowned conductos including Ivor Bolton, Michiyoshi Inoue, and José María Moreno.
