Zhao Jiping Violin Concerto No.1
Beethoven Symphony No.9



About this performance

Xian Zhang, the MSO's inaugural Principal Guest Conductor, leads the Orchestra and MSO Chorus for this program featuring Beethoven’s enduring symphonic masterpiece.

  • Zhao Jiping is one of China’s most active and internationally-regarded composers, whose film scores have twice earned him the coveted Golden Rooster Award for Best Music. His Violin Concerto No.1 bathes us in soaring melodies and lush harmonies.
  • Beethoven’s truly epic final symphony features a huge orchestra, the MSO Chorus in full flight and the famous Ode to Joy, in what has been described as the ‘symphony to end all symphonies’. Need we say more?

Duration: approx. 2 hours including interval



  • 赵季平是中国最活跃、最受国际认可的作曲家之一,他的电影配乐曾两次为他赢得梦寐以求的金鸡奖最佳音乐奖。 他的第一小提琴协奏曲能让我们沉浸在飞扬的旋律和丰富的和声中。
  • 《第九交响曲》堪称贝多芬真正史诗般的交响曲。MSO拥有一支阵容庞大的管弦乐队、穿着华丽礼服技艺精湛的歌唱艺术家们及一个大型的合唱团同台演出,届时将为观众带来一场盛况空前的视听盛宴!演出结尾将带来被描述为“终结所有交响乐的交响乐”的欢乐颂,敬请期待。

演出时长:约 2小时,包括中场休息。
