China's love affair with piano recitals is never ending. The mesmerizing tune of subtlety, power, and elegance struck by the fingers of the artists, echoes with the most deeply buried memories of joy and sorrow. The cascading sound coming from the shimmering fingers over the keyboard is the direct embodiment of such delicate and profound emotion. Wu Promotion hopes to instill a pure moment of grace into the heart of every listener.Read more
It is the chance to hear the best artists up close in intimate settings with superb textural clarity. In each group, not only does the individual technical excellence and balance between the members contribute to its remarkableness, but also the richness of ensemble, where the harmonic construction and musical understanding are perfectly mirrored with coherent phrasing and homogeneous ensemble playing, thus revealing a profound expression of the music piece. The resulting intimacy suggests "smallness" and "closeness" on the participation of both performers and listeners. Wu Promotion believes that it is only a matter of time for Chinese audience to become fervently infatuated with the ultimate delicacy of chamber music.Read more
In 2016, world-renowned pianist and conductor Rudolf Buchbinder, violin virtuoso Roby Lakatos and world-class cellist Misha Maisky will be invited to perform in China.Read more

Besides, there are Silk Road Festival and String Quartet of the Vienna Philharmonic in May, Theatertreffen in China in June, WDR Big Band Köln in Oct., etc.
Charlie Chaplin, one of the greatest humorists and entertainers of all times, said in 1940 in one of his movies: “We think too much, we feel too little.”
