Guangzhou Symphony Youth Orchestra 广州青年交响乐团

Schedule

Sun / 13 Aug 2017 / 4:00PM

Venue

Victoria Concert Hall

Presented by the Singapore National Youth Orchestra

Guangzhou Symphony Youth Orchestra’s concert opens with two evocative pieces from Chinese composers: The Secret of Wind and Birds, Tan Dun's tone poem where the audience's mobile phones joins the orchestra in birdsong, and Lin Zhao’s Duo for Sheng, Cello and Orchestra, where acclaimed cellist Wang Jian and Sheng player Jia Lei tell a Chinese legend of a monk in search of Buddhist wisdom. From the East, they journey to the West with Vaughan Williams' sublime Serenade to Music in praise of music's beauty and concluding with the sunlit canopy and nightingale-touched dusk of Respighi's colourful Pines of Rome.
