Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra / Tan Dun, conductor

2018 Lunar New Year Celebration

Don't miss the cornerstone event of our 2018 Lunar New Year festivities, as world-renowned artist and UNESCO Global Goodwill Ambassador Tan Dun returns to lead one of China's most outstanding orchestras. Bookended by two Stravinsky classics, The Firebird Suite and Fireworks, this fascinating program features Guan Xia's One Hundred Birds Flying Towards the Phoenix with rising star suona soloist Wenwen Liu, a 13th-generation inheritor of her instrument's tradition. Tan Dun also brings his own Triple Concerto for Piano, Violin, and Violoncello: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon--a special concert version of music from his famous Grammy- and Oscar-winning score for the beloved film--with internationally acclaimed soloists Dan Zhu (violin), Jiapeng Nie (cello), and Yumin Wu (piano).
