Wong Ka Lap Cello Recital Program description

Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of hearing Wong Ka Lap play cello would have inevitably drawn in by the immense charisma of this young virtuoso.  His debut at the 2010 Hong Kong Cello Festival was a tremendous success.  He performed a beautiful piece by Frederic Chopin, Polonaise Brilliant Op. 3.  The audiences were entranced by his captivating performance.  It offered everyone a glimpse into his usually private world.   There is no doubt in anyone's mind just how brilliant this young cellist is.  He has a natural affinity with music and is able to make the music come alive with a seemingly effortless grace.

However, his music journey is anything but effortless. In fact, he has had very limited formal music training. He started taking cello lessons under Ms. Monica So when he was in Primary 6, and later with Mr. Artem Konstantinov. In merely three years time, he received his Associate Degree from Trinity College of London. He continued his training until Form 4, when academic demands made him slow down in his music practice.

He then other interests for a year, but soon discovered his passion ultimately lies in music. Just he was about to immerse himself into the study of music, unexpectedly he developed some health problems which stopped him cold in his tracks. Undeterred by this sudden turn of event, he refused to give up and began to self-teach by listening to various cello masterpieces. By simply listening and learning, he was able to play and interpret these demanding pieces in his own special way. This young man has an extraordinary gift and with sheer determination he fought through his health problems and emerged as a bright, shining star. In this moment, he is poised to take the next step in his music journey, prepared for what is yet to come. And so he takes the stage of life once again – sharing his heart full of music with you.
