Renowned Sheng virtuoso Wu Wei leads the SSO on a journey from East to West and back again, in an unmissable demonstration of the ancient Chinese instrument’s phenomenal capabilities. Prepared to be transported aloft with Eastern and Chinese favourites, alongside transcriptions of Baroque classics. Virtuosity, poetry, nostalgia – the endless sound of the Sheng.
