New York Philharmonic: Chinese New Year – Conducted by Long Yu
Celebrate The Year Of The Snake
Celebrate the Year of the Snake with this festive evening of Chinese music and dance!
Following medici.tv's first ever broadcast of a New York Philharmonic's concert on July 2012, here is the second result of their collaboration. Watch the orchestra celebrating Chinese New Year with a gala concert recorded at the Avery Fisher Hall.
This concert marks the New York Philharmonic’s second annual Chinese New Year celebrations, when the orchestra heralds the Year of the Snake with a gala concert spotlighting connections between Eastern and Western cultures. This new Philharmonic tradition honors both the Chinese-American community and the cultural heritages of China and America.
Returning to the Philharmonic to lead the performance is Long Yu, artistic director and chief conductor of the China Philharmonic, music director of the Shanghai and Guanzhou Symphony Orchestras, and artistic director of the Beijing Music Festival. Snow Lotus Trio, a folk ensemble from the mountains of China, will join forces with the Philharmonic to showcase Chinese folk music traditions. The webcast will conclude with a special encore performance of Sun Yi-Qian’s Spring Dance by pianist Lang Lang, which he performed in the inaugural Chinese New Year concert in January 2012.
