Jian Wang, on Working with Bernadette Harvey
As we welcome the internationally acclaimed cellist Jian Wang to Australian shores, we thought to share this video, where Jian discusses his work with Australian pianist Bernadette Harvey.
Jian Wang and Bernadette Harvey first performed together at the 2006 Huntington Estate Music Festival – the first presented in association with Musica Viva. When presented with the opportunity to perform again with Musica Viva, Jian immediately enquired about Bernadette’s availability.
Jian and Bernadette rehearsed together today for the first time since their appearance at Huntington. Together, they will perform Schnittke’s Cello Sonata no 1 and Brahms’ Cello Sonata no 2, along with Bach’s Suites no 1 and 6 for unaccompanied cello, Puts’ ‘Alternating Current’ and Vine’s Piano Sonata no 1, in concerts as part of Musica Viva’s International Concert Season.
