CHEN QigangLa joie de la souffrance for Violin and Orchestra (HK Premiere)
SHCHEDRINCarmen Suite (after BIZET)Listen


Concert duration is approx. 2 hours (including one interval). Please stay tuned for the traffic arrangement on that day.


This concert opens and closes with two ravishing Russian ballet scores which share a Parisian connection with the concerto composed by Chen Qigang. Studying in Paris, Chen finds that “the violin has perhaps the widest capacity to express human emotion” of all the instruments. His violin concerto La joie de la souffrance was premiered in Beijing in 2017, and Ning Feng will return to present its Hong Kong premiere with Yu Long.


Post-concert Sharing

Conductor Yu Long and soloist Ning Feng will meet the audience on stage after both performances. Members of the audience are welcome to stay and join their sharing session.
