[Reporter Ling Meixue/Taipei Report] Since the end of the world epidemic, the internationally renowned Taiwanese violinist Chen Yu has also restarted his busy international performance schedule. It is a rare opportunity to return to Taiwan to perform. This time is very special. Starting today (21st), we will join hands with the German Bamberger Symphoniker, which made its comeback after more than 30 years, to conduct three Taiwan tours in Beijing and Gao.

Chen Yu met the media yesterday with his latest famous violin "Dolphin" provided by the Japan Music Foundation. Owned, when introducing this violin, Chen Kui described it with high spirits. This violin is like a proud and beautiful princess. It was difficult to control at first. He spent a lot of research and adjusted the weight of the bow. Only then did he find a way to blend together beautifully. Chen Yu joked that he "melted" "her" with his sincerity.

Speaking of the cooperation with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, although it has been 33 years since the orchestra visited Taiwan last time, he has cooperated with them in Europe before. He and the current chief conductor of the orchestra Jacob.
Jakub Hrůša is also a good friend. He believes that the musical energy displayed by the conductor and the orchestra is very penetrating, and he looks forward to performing with them again.
Liang Xiuling, chairman of the Bach Inspired Music and Culture Association, which hosted the Taiwan tour, said that the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra is one of the top three orchestras in Germany. Bavaria is a small town, but amidst the high-cold chords of classical music, the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra's mellow, mellow and special timbre occupies a place in the world's symphony map.
As early as the Holy Roman Empire, Bamberg was the residence of bishops and emperors. This noble lineage influenced Bamberg thousands of years later, and also allowed the orchestra to show an elegant and royal demeanor.
Another feature of this tour is that Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, which Chen Yu will cooperate with the orchestra, will be the last round of the tour that Chen Yu decided to temporarily "close".
Talking about the decision to temporarily close the piece, Chen Yu did not deny that he was somewhat disappointed after the announcement. This piece was the piece he won the first prize in the Manuin International Violin Competition. Afterwards, many orchestras asked him to collaborate with him on this piece. It can be said that he has been touring internationally with him for many years, but interpreting music requires not only the accumulation of life experience, but sometimes a little time and space distance. He believes that after a few years of suspension, there will be different sparks.
In addition to Mendelssohn's "Violin Concerto", the three performances of this trip also have different themes and repertoire arrangements. On March 21, Bruckner's "Symphony Prelude in C Minor" was unveiled at the Taipei National Concert Hall. The first piece of the Kailai Taiwan Concert; also at the Taipei National Concert Hall on the 22nd, will reproduce Li Getty’s experimental and legendary work "Symphonic Poem for 100 Metronome" in 1962, and lead the audience into Brahms’s "Symphony No. 4" will move to Kaohsiung Weiwuying Concert Hall on the 25th, and the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra will present Czech composer Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 in E minor "New World".
