Tomorrow, the King’s Lynn Music Society will welcome a Chinese pianist, whose career began when she was just 17 years old and played for the Malaysian Royal family in Kuala Lumpur.
Di Xiao, who has been described by critics as “a pianist of awesome gifts”, is off to an exciting start to her career.
Having played across the globe, she completed the Rising Stars tour in 2009 as the UK’s representative, which took her to 13 of the world’s most prestigious concert halls.
She studied at Odessa, Beijing and Birmingham, where she now holds a teaching position, and has enjoyed success in many national and international competitions.
Many of her live performances and recitals have been recorded and transmitted across Europe and she has a third album, featuring Scottish composer Kris Lennox’s piano solo works, to be released this year.
Di aspires to be an international ambassador for the piano, combining Chinese and Western repertoire.
She will give a piano recital at the first meeting of the King’s Lynn Music Society for the season 2013 to 2014, which will be held, as usual, in Lynn’s Town Hall.
The meeting will take place tomorrow from 7.30pm, with coffee available in the Stone Hall from 7pm.
Visitors are welcome to attend as monthly members for £8.50, full time students, under 18s and those with membership affiliated to FRMS are free of charge.
