WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Classical music lovers know all about the violin, flute and timpani. But what about the erhu, xiao and dagu? The Shanghai Chinese Orchestra gives us a chance to discover a new musical vocabulary in a concert of historical and contemporary Chinese music played on traditional Chinese instruments. The orchestra's instrumentalists perform large-scale Chinese orchestral works as well as chamber and solo pieces in this authentic expression of Chinese musical culture.
