Melbourne Recital Centre
In August 2016, Castiglione hosted the most celebrated Chinese violinist Lu Siqing at his Melbourne live concert ‘Nostalgia’, tailored for overseas Chinese.
Lu collaborated with Melbourne’s local young pianist Stefan Cassomenous in these two sold out concerts.
Lu comforted audiences’ nostalgia for their hometowns across the sea with his superb violin skills. The performance, which proved to be a significant event in Australia Chinese arts calendar, strengthened the bond within and beyond the community.
Lu thoroughly enjoyed working with Castiglione, written that ‘it was a pleasure to be able to come to Melbourne and play these two recitals. Thank you so much for everything and hope we will see each other very soon’!
