“One of the world’s 10 most inspiring orchestras.” – Gramophone

The founding of the China Philharmonic Orchestra marks a new chapter in symphonic music in China, now a leading musical center of the world. With unswerving commitment to quality and determined ambition, it ranks as one of the largest and best-known orchestras in Asia. Performances under the inspiring baton of Maestro Long Yu have included Mahler’s Symphony of a Thousand with nearly one thousand musicians. Chen Yi’s Four Spirits, commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts for UNC-Chapel Hill Assistant Professor of Music Clara Yang, represents the four spiritual animals of ancient Chinese legend: the Blue Dragon in the east, the White Tiger in the west, the Red Phoenix in the south and the Black Xuanwu (a turtle/snake hybrid) in the north. Rounding out the program is Shostakovich’s haunting Symphony No. 5.ProgramCHEN YIFour Spirits for Piano and Orchestra (US Premiere)
