From Joseph Uy comes this letter to fans of classical music:
May I cordially invite you to the Philippine debut of the sensational young cellist Guo Qiele on March 6 at the Ayala Museum at 7 p.m.? He will be performing the Dvorak's Piano Trio no. 3 and the Piazzolla's Four Seasons of Buenos Aires together with our very own pianist Mary Ann Espina and violinist Gina Medina.
Mary Anne Espina
Gina MedinaKnown for his "expressive tone that can call forth dazzling specturm of tonal colors and sounds, an impressive technique and impeccable musicality," the sensational 16-year old Chinese cellist Guo Qiele was named one of the "Ten Talented Young Artists of China" when he was only 14. Two years later, he took part in a national cello competition "Ai qin bei" and won the second prize. He is the prized student of world reknowned Cellist Qin Li Wei in Singapore. (Cellist Qin Li Wei has given a concert under the aegis of the MCO Foundation where he received numerous standing ovations.) Quile regularly participates in masterclasses, including the one conducted by pedagogues Frans Helmerson, Louis Claret and Luise Hopkins.
