Li-Wei Qin has appeared all over the world as a soloist and a chamber musician. After achieving great success at the 11th Tchaikovsky International Competition where he was awarded the silver medal, he has since won first prize at the prestigious 2001 Naumburg Competition in New York.

Two times soloist at the BBC Proms in London’s Royal Albert Hall, he has enjoyed successful artistic collaborations with many of the world’s great orchestras including all of the BBC symphony orchestras, and leading orchestras in Europe, America, Australia, Japan and elsewhere. Other major invitations have included appearances at the 2008 Beijing Olympics (New Zealand Symphony Orchestra), the 2012 London Olympics and the Davos World Economic Forum (Basel Symphony Orchestra).

His recordings on Universal Music/Decca include the complete Beethoven Sonatas, works by Rachmaninov with the pianist Albert Tiu, Dvořák’s Cello Concerto with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and conductor Lan Shui, and the Elgar and Walton Concertos with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

He is a professor at the YST Conservatory of the National University of Singapore. He plays a 1780 Joseph Guadagnini cello, generously lent by Dr and Mrs Wilson Goh.
