I met Zhang Lianghu last year, when we were arranged to play together by the accompaniment teacher. I couldn’t understand him (my chinese sucks) and he couldn’t understand me (his german sucks) but we ended up playing in more than 5 recitals together. We even played in an oboe, viola, piano trio and won 3rd place in a chamber music competition. (Thats right, hipsters rule)
Our last performance together was his graduation recital (i was a freshie and he was a senior) and after that he went back to China and became principal Oboe of Tianjin Symphony Orchestra (if I understood him correctly).
