“[Guo Yazhi]’s melodious tremolo is highly expressive.”
The Washington Post

A master of suona, together with established Western musicians, in a dazzling East-meets-West concert.

Guo Yazhi, widely regarded as the best suona player in Asia, presents an exquisite evening of music with his fellow Berklee College of Music composer-musicians David Fiuczynski (guitar), Utar Artun (piano), Petar Krstajic (bass) and Jarrell Campbell (drums). The concert features original compositions and re-arrangements of popular favourites such as The Dragon’s Song, Beijing Blues, Dance of the Golden Snake, and Turkish Delights, showcasing their instrumental mastery, with Guo also featuring on other traditional Chinese wind instruments.

Multi-instrumentalist Guo specialises in woodwinds and is also a music innovator. He graduated with distinction from the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, and has won many international awards including the Grand Prize at New York's International Pro Musicis Award (1998), and the Hong Kong Award for Best Artist (2012). He has performed with many orchestras around the world including Orchestra de la Suisse Switzerland, South Korea Daejeon Philharmonic Orchestra, Belgium's Flanders Symphony Orchestra, Malaysia Chinese Orchestra, Singapore Chinese Orchestra, and National Chinese Orchestra of Taiwan.
