« Lifei Huang plays like a professional with years of experience behind her. This work gave her ample opportunity to display her strengths – a strong bowing arm, full rich tone on her G-string, ethereal beauty on the E-string and an abandon and virtuosity when required. I am not ashamed to tell you that such was the glory of this performance that I had tears of joy in my eyes throughout. Tonight we heard a star very much in the ascendant and what an auspicious London debut! »

Lifei Huang plays like a professional with years of experience behind her. This work gave her ample opportunity to display her strengths – a strong bowing arm, full rich tone on her G-string, ethereal beauty on the E-string and an abandon and virtuosity when required. I am not ashamed to tell you that such was the glory of this performance that I had tears of joy in my eyes throughout. Tonight we heard a star very much in the ascendant and what an auspicious London debut!

S
Simon

Lifei is herself extremely serious and professional in her approach. Each lesson invariably consists of scales and duos and (at least one of) studies and a solo piece. Although there is a lot of time spent on technique, Lifei is constantly stressing the musicality of all the passages. My own job allows me to fully appreciate Lifei's approach to teaching, and I am sure she adapts this quickly when teaching younger adults, or again when coaching children.

E
Elias

I always looked for great musicians to join my musical project and the best one I found is with no doubt Lifei. She understood the deep reasons of my music more than anybody else I played with bringing an unheard , special , meaningful depth to my songs. She is a musician and a poet at the same time , and this the measure of an artist. I assure to whoever is interested in playing with her or have her as a music teacher , that she is patient , capable , serious energetic and pleasant to work with.
