We’re delighted to have in our Zurich International Orchestra Series one of China’s most exciting orchestras, the China Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra. Appropriately, the concert will begin with the leading Chinese/American composer Tan Dun’s musical excerpts from the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Following this, the Orchestra will be joined by the brilliant young British violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen in two masterworks for orchestra and violin – Chausson’s Poème and Saint-Saëns’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso.
The second half of the concert will feature two of Respighi’s monumental tone poems, Fountains of Rome and, his ultimate work, Pines of Rome.
