Major Trio consists of three outstanding musicians: Violinist Lu Siqing, Cellist Li-Wei Qin and Pianist Sun Yingdi. Each of the three musicians won top awards from Paganini International Violin Competition (Lu Siqing), International Tchaikovsky Competition (Li-Wei Qin) and International Franz Liszt Piano Competition (Sun Yingdi), which brought them high reputations around the world.


Violinist Lu Siqing is the first Asian violinist to win the first prize at the prestigious Paganini International Violin Competition in Italy in 1987. One of the most important Chinese violinists today, he has performed in some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls in more than forty countries, under the baton of numerous great conductors with best orchestras across continents. His unparalleled musicality and passionate interpretation has conquered the audience around the world, and was hailed as “an outstanding and talented violinist”.


Cellist Li-Wei Qin achieved a great success at the 11thTchaikovsky International Competition where he was awarded the Silver Medal, and he also won the First Prize in the prestigious 2001 Naumburg Competition in New York. He has appeared all over the world as both a soloist and a chamber musician, and has attended the Royal Albert Hall, London twice during the celebrated Promenade Concert (known as The Proms) as a soloist. The New York Times has spoken highly of Li-Wei, saying that 'Mr. Qin has a great deal going for him, including a meltingly beautiful tone, flawless centered intonation and an ironclad technique’.


Pianist Sun Yingdi won the First Prize in the 7th International Franz Liszt Piano Competition held in Utrecht, Netherlands, in April 2005, making him the first Chinese pianist to win this prestigious competition. Yingdi’s outstanding interpretation of Liszt is praised by major media reports as the “Liszt in primary colors.” Recently, he has been an active solo and collaborative pianist, touring in many countries and performing with various musicians and conductors in concert halls worldwide.


Since its establishment in 2011, Major Trio has been giving concerts in China and overseas successfully. In the past five years, the Trio has been continuously invited by the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) to perform in its renowned NCPA May Festival. The Trio has also been invited to the Great Hall of the People to perform in a banquet held for the head of foreign state. Their repertoire includes chamber masterworks by Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Dvořák, Smetana, Arensky, Sarasate, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Shostakovich, Piazzolla,and Hu Yao, showing brilliant skills and harmonious cooperation in the performances. Besides chamber performances, the Trio has also collaborated with NCPA Orchestra for Beethoven's Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Piano in C major, also known as Triple Concerto. Each of the three musicians has performed Tan Dun’s Martial Arts Tetralogy, including violin concerto “Hero”, cello concerto “Crouching Tiger”, piano concerto “Banquet”, and triple concerto “Resurrection”. “Great musicians together present the aesthetic of music” has become the motto of Major Trio.
