CNSO to close music season

    CONDUCTED by Hu Yongyan, the China National Symphony Orchestra (CNSO) will present a concert to close the international Belt and Road music season this Sunday night.

    The program includes “Sheherazade,” a symphonic suite by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and “The Great Wall,” a suite composed by Chinese contemporary musician Ye Xiaogang commissioned by Shenzhen’s publicity department in 2001.

    Polish pianist Adam Kosmieja, morin huur (also known as horsehead fiddle) player Zhang Quansheng, tenor Shi Yijie and soprano Wang Wei will collaborate.

    Intending “The Great Wall” as a symbol of cultures and histories of various ethnic groups in northern China, Ye borrowed from folk music as well as Beijing opera and other traditional Chinese operas for this nine-part suite. The orchestration features Chinese instruments like the bamboo flute, pipa, erhu apart from the morin huur.

    “Sheherazade,” composed by Rimsky-Korsakov in 1888 and based on “One Thousand and One Nights,” combines two features typical of Russian music and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colorful orchestration and an interest in the East, which featured greatly in the history of Imperial Russia, as well as Orientalism in general.

    The name “Scheherazade” refers to the main character “Shahrazad” of the “One Thousand and One Nights.” It is considered Rimsky-Korsakov’s most popular work.

    Conductor Hu began his formal studies at China’s Central Conservatory of Music. Later he studied at Yale University and The Juilliard School in New York.

    He is the artistic director of the EOS Repertoire Orchestra — China’s Orchestra Academy at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and is highly praised for his numerous popular productions of classical music, operas, musicals and film soundtracks.

    Founded as the Central Philharmonic Orchestra of China in 1956 under the baton of the famous Chinese conductor Li Delun, CNSO is one of China’s best orchestras today. In 1996, it was restructured and renamed the China National Symphony Orchestra.

    Time: 8 p.m., April 16 Tickets: 80-1,280 yuan

    Venue: Shenzhen Poly Theater, intersection of Wenxin Road 5 and Houhaibin Road, Nanshan District (南山区后海滨路与文心五路交界处深圳保利剧院)

    Metro: Line 2, Houhai Station (后海站), Exit E
