As a recognition for his artistic achievements in the same summer he was awarded with the ‘Artist Promotion Prize of the Bavarian Government’. In the year 2003, he was prize winner at the Montreal International Musical Competition and also was awarded the second prize at the ‘Liana Isakadze International Violin Competition’ in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Chu Yi-Bing Cello Ensemble on Silk Road

Chu Yi-Bing
Honorary Professor of Cello and Chamber Music
Hong Kong Music and Performing School

Chu Yibing is a Chinese cellist. He contributed to spreading ensemble music all over China. His ensemble China Philharmonic Cellists, made up of 12 Chinese cellists, gives concerts all over the country.

He was imparted rudimentary knowledge of music by his parents, both of whom were professors in the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, when he was a kid. His mother is half-Swiss half-Chinese. Chu’s father was an excellent cellist and a strict teacher, so Chu laid a solid foundation before he studied abroad in Europe.

He went to Europe to pursue music studies in 1983. In France, he studied with Maurice Gendron. In 1986, he was awarded several prizes in an international cello competition in Geneva, which made him the first Chinese cellist that had won an international competition. Chu graduated from the Conservatoire de Paris in 1987 with Premier Prix, becoming the third Chinese musician (after Ma Sicong and Xian Xinghai) who ever got a degree with merit from the Conservatoire de Paris. Then, Chu began to study on 20th-century music, working with Inter Contemporain and Pierre Boulez.

Chu became the principal cellist of Sinfonieorchester Basel, Switzerland, in 1989. In 1999, he was the guest principal cellist of Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.

Chu was invited by his German cellist friends as one of the 6 members of the Cologne Philharmonic Cellists and gave many performances all over Germany. A large amount of traditional works have been revised by this group into cello ensemble works, with modern perspectives and popular styles. Besides, as an outstanding cellist, Chu had opportunities to play with other great cellists such as Rostropovich, Greenhouse, etc.

For knowing music from a new approach, he decided to study conducting at the Basel Music Academy. Then, he began to conduct symphony orchestras in Switzerland. Chu has conducted the Hallé, Britain’s longest-established symphony orchestra, Munich Symphony Orchestra, Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra and Berlin Symphony Orchestra.  

In 2004, after 21 years studying and playing in Europe, Chu came back to China and was appointed as Professor of Cello at the Central Conservatory of Music. After that, he and his followers began to spread music as well as ideas of music education over China by giving concerts in various forms and propagating western music studies.

Chu believes that Chinese people are the most suitable group of people for appreciating chamber music because of the Chinese historical backgrounds. So, he founded the China Philharmonic Cellists and tour around the country giving performances with amazing energy and exquisite tastes. Chu’s efforts have been well-recognized and highly appraised by mainstream media in China.

《We Are • HKMPS》 
A world-class international music and performing arts academic institution and cultural destination
Please contact us if you want to invest in music art and culture or donate to our School Construction Project, nurturing the next generation of music artists. 

Engaging in classical music is sometimes regarded as a luxury. On the contrary, I believe that classical music makes our hearts richer: it touches souls and moves people in positive ways. Its value and its history throughout the world simply cannot be measured. I strongly feel that every individual should have access to this wonderful heritage and the possibility to meet classical music at some times in their lives. Classical music is also a universal language, one that goes beyond barriers. It’s a great channel for uniting all people and for creating world peace.

My music dream started at the age of three. I’m not a musical genius, but perhaps more importantly imbued with a hard-working ethic and a desire for excellence. I’m ready to bring my music to new heights in the community. I hope my dream can also motivate others to pursue the joys of classical music.

2014 is the year of the magical horse – the one that has supernatural powers, is heroic, strong, and can even fly! The horse years promises to bring us all good fortune and good luck. The year of the horse is also the year of HKMPS. I hope that through the work of HKMPS I can share my good fortune and happiness with you all.

Never give up when you reach the finish line!!
