Dvořák Cello Concerto
Shostakovich Symphony No 5
The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra is China’s premier classical ensemble – and an orchestra of global stature. Now in its 140th anniversary year, it has toured the world extensively, praised universally for its immense energy, colour and focus.
The Orchestra’s Music Director Long Yu is a major force in Chinese music – as founder and director of festivals and ensembles across the country and as a charismatic, inspirational conductor with a flair for drama and unbridled entertainment.
They are joined by captivating US cellist Alisa Weilerstein for the melodic magnificence of Dvořák’s achingly passionate Cello Concerto. Orchestra and conductor bring the concert to a resplendent climax with the grotesque humour and rousing celebrations of Shostakovich’s powerful Fifth Symphony.
