Di Xiao (piano)
Described as “a pianist of awesome gifts” by the Birmingham Post, Chinese pianist Di Xiao has built a reputation as a musician and international ambassador for the piano. In a concert that celebrates the Confucius Institute’s 1st birthday, Di performs a programme that brings together both East and West, juxtaposing the music of European masters with works by their Chinese counterparts, all inspired by similar stimuli.
