About my Name

Interesting facts: my name Wuqiong (舞穹) pronounces similar to infinity (∞) in Chinese. Therefore, It seems I was born to play with maths and science. Who knows whether my limit is infinity or not?

I also have a non-official English name Teddy van Jerry (or just Jerry), and have teddy-van-jerry.org redirecting wqzhao.org. I was called "Jerry" due to a random assignment at Grade 1 in the elementary school. I have kept it since then because my favorite cartoon is Tom and Jerry, and I love the creativity of Jerry the mouse. "Teddy" is chosen simply because I love teddy bears. I even propose the Ted Programming Language featuring teddy bears (🧸). The middle name "van" does not represent any kind of origin. Actually, I just want to have the same middle name with one of my favorite composers, Ludwig van Beethoven.

Classical Music and Opera

I am a classical music fan and opera enthusiast. My favorite composer is Richard Wagner (Bach and Tchaikovsky also play an important role in my life). I am especially fond of works rich in acoustics with passion and energy, like Musikdrama of Wagner, symphonies with choir of Beethoven and Mahler.

I started practising the violin at 7, and served as the concertmaster of Wuxi Rococo Youth Orchestra. The music education (many thanks to my teacher) plays an indispensable role in shaping my music preference.

Due to COVID and heavy coursework, I have not been able to attend many concerts. An incomplete list of works I have had the fortune to listen to live: [Bach] Toccata and Fugue, BWV 565; [Beethoven] Symphony No. 7 & 8, Piano Sonata No. 2 & 9 & 15 & 23 & 27; [Brahms] Symphony No. 1 & 2 & 4, Piano Concerto No. 2, Piano Trio No. 1; [Orff] Carmina Burana; [Prokofiev] Piano Concerto No. 2; [Saint-Saëns] The Carnival of the Animals; [Shostakovich] Symphony No. 6, Festive Overture, Piano Trio No. 2; [Stravinsky] The Rite of Spring; [Suk] Symphony No. 1; [Liszt] Réminiscences de Don Juan; [Mahler] Symphony No. 1, Des Knaben Wunderhorn; [Mussorgsky] Pictures at an Exhibition; [Tchaikovsky] Symphony No. 4 & 5, Violin Concerto, Piano Concerto No. 1, Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet, Variations on a Rococo Theme, Piano Trio, Waltz of Flowers; [Wagner] Lohengrin, Götterdämmerung.

A list of music venues I have been to: Shanghai Symphony Hall, Shanghai Oriental Art Center, Shanghai Grand Theatre, Jiangsu Grand Theatre (Nanjing), Changzhou Grand Theatre, Jinji Lake Concert Hall (Suzhou), San Diego Rady Shell, The Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center (La Jolla), St. Thomas's Church (Leipzig).

Compositions must listen before examinations: The Ring Cycle by Wagner, Symphony No. 9 by Beethoven, and Requiem by Mozart. I am sure these long and complex works will help you to concentrate and relax (maybe excite)!
