Beibei Wang

Beibei Wang

With her background in both Classical and traditional Chinese percussion, Beibei Wang brings her characteristic “high energy virtuosity” (Wall Street Journal) to performances of diverse repertoire.

As a soloist, she has performed around the world with leading orchestras and has appeared as soloist on the world’s most prestigious stages.

Beibei has had a long-term collaboration with composer and conductor Tan Dun, featuring as soloist for performances of Tan’s Organic Music Trilogy percussion concerti worldwide. Beibei premiered ‘Earth Concerto’ at Grafenegg Festival and performed ‘Tears of Nature’ concerto with the BBC Concert Orchestra on their 2018 six-city China tour with conductor Barry Wordsworth. Her unique background brings her to a range of multi-disciplinary projects ranging from performances of contemporary classics and new commissions with RPS-award winning ensemble Manchester Collective, to dance projects with groups such as House of Absolute and Philharmonia, and international tours with Aakash Odedra Company’s “Samsara’ following its 2022 UK premiere at Edinburgh International Festival.

In recent years, Beibei has brought her cross-cultural background into original compositions. In 2023, her music theatre piece “WuXing 五行” for chamber ensemble and multimedia premiered at LSO St Luke’s, London. This followed the 2022 premiere of her piece ‘JiuGe’. Beibei performed her arrangement of Tan Dun’s ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ concerto for percussion ensemble and cello in Hamburg’s Laeiszhalle in winter 2022, and her commissions include music for Shanghai, London and Paris Fashion Weeks, award-wining short film scores, and multimedia music theatre pieces.
