SHI JIN PIANO CONCERT 2017
12-14 Nov 2017
Shi Jin, also known affectionately by fans as ‘the national pianist’, is a Chinese pianist and composer. He is one of the most popular pianist in China who combines melodious Chinese compositions with inspiration and emotion. In 2010, his composition Melody of the Night IV was included in groundbreaking Chinese film If You Are the One created by award winning director Feng Xiaogang. Since 2006, Shi Jin has composed more than 50 piano songs and gained 200 million views on XiaMi music, the most popular Chinese online music platform. Shi has toured to over 22 cities across China and played over 55 sold-out performances.
In November 2017, Shi Jin brought his first recital concert to Australia with Castiglione. Audience ‘felt at peace’ with Shi’s music. Shi was very excited by audiences’ reaction and delighted to meet music lovers from overseas. This hugely successful performance was sponsored by China’s Xiamen Airline. Castiglione’s proven ability to work with cross cultural artists, venues and stakeholders once again shines through the entire organisation of the event.
