Talented Chinese guitarist Hao Wang becomes a new global classical music star

Hao Wang is a Chinese guitarist and singer began his musical studies at the age of ten, studying classical guitar with Haitao Lu. He showed early promise as a musician and in 2003 won Third price at the One of the Youth International Guitar Competition in Greece. 

In the year of 2009, Hao gave a great recital share with his teacher Haitao Lu in the Wuhan Qintai Grand Theatre. There award-winning performances helped to shape and direct his early musical career. Hao’s development as a musician also involved vocal studies (Baritone) at the Wuhan College of music, studied with the Head of the vocal studies who name is LeiMing He.   

Hao’s undergraduate studies took place at the Trinity Conservatory of Music and Dance with the Scolarship, studied with the head of guitar department, Graham Antony Devine. During his tie at the college he took part in master classes with Alvaro Pierri, Johannes Moller, Roland Dyens Tom Kerstens, John Mills, Jose Antonio Escobar and Augustin Wiedemann.  He also gave solo and chamber music recitals at Modern College, Chapel, St Alfege Church, Queen’s house, S’t Anns church and Southwark Cathedral.

 Hao was a Master and Postgraduate Advanced study student at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) where he studies with Craig Ogden during the year of 2016 and 2019.  He has received a scholarship from Dr Sheila which is based on the Ian Spencer Fox Guitar Bursary.  As Chinese classical guitarist and singer, Hao worked as a specialist guitar teacher at LEVII ACADEMY for nearly one year in Manchester before he went back to Trinity for his Postgraduate Advanced Study course.  He also played in several master classes, and gave some solo concerts in Manchester. 

Over the past few years of study he has become more and more immersed in contemporary repertoire for guitar and one of the main reasons for continuing my studies is to explore the works of Maurice Ohana for ten-string guitar alongside Bach’s Lute Suites. The Ohana works are masterpieces but are sadly rarely performed due to the technical demands and their musical complexity. Trinity’s head of guitar, Graham Anthony Devine, has frequently performed and recorded all of Maurice Ohana’s works and is one of only two people to have done so. He is an expert on this music and is also renowned for his Bach performances and recordings. There are currently no professors of guitar at any of the UK conservatories that can offer this level of expertise and guidance with this repertoire other than Graham Anthony Devine at Trinity and this is the main reason why he returned to study these works with him. 

Apparently he has got highly recommend in the Alison Stephen’s Competition on 8th November with the high standard of playing. He is now looking forward to collaborating and performing with musicians in the coming year. He would like to perform more contemporary music in UK eventually as this is becoming more popular and generating much more interest now with emerging composers and performers engaging with varied and interesting repertoire. Graham Anthony Devine as the director of Royal Greenwich Guitar Festival, who is going to give an online masterclass through Zoom this year, due to the ongoing situation surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Also there will be online exchanging masterclass between Graham and HaiTao Lu. Hao believes that they can all benefit from each other as they motivate more people to get involved the classical guitar round the work with high standard of the guitar enviroments.
