Wu Wei: sheng
Pascal Contet: accordion
Known for his extraordinary and captivating style, musician Wu Wei is currently the world’s leading sheng soloist. His performances have earned him acclaim in both classical and musical improvisation circles. The sheng is a Chinese wind instrument dating back 4,000 years and is a distant relative to the accordion and bandoneon. The instrument’s 37 pipes enable Wu Wei to explore new sound nuances that seem to parallel traditional music, yet ancient Chinese court music makes up a large part of his repertoire. Wu Wei has performed as a soloist with, among others, the Berlin Philarmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Munich Symphony Orchestra. He’s also worked with numerous conductors, including Kent Nagano and Gustavo Dudamel.
Pascal Contet is one of France’s most appreciated accordion artists and is considered a pioneer of the instrument. He has composed more than 300 pieces, and numerous works have been dedicated to him by, among others, Jean Francaix, Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna. As a soloist, he’s performed with numerous acclaimed conductors, including Pierre Boulez and Susanna Mälkki. Contet is also known for his fondness for improvisation and for cross-art projects within dance, theater and film.
