Three exceptional performers represent the grand finale of this long and exciting journey through the music culture of the People’s Republic of China.
Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1982, is considered one of the best chinese professional orchestras, providing a high level of excellence and high international profile. It tours the whole of China and the rest of the world – last Italian performance dates back to 2016 – among the most significant recent events we may mention: the 2018 Chinese new year performance at the Kennedy Center in Washington, directed by Tan Dun.
Lin Daye is the team director: he was born in 1980 in the Shandong province, and studied in China and Germany; he is one of the most beloved maestros if his generation. In fact, he was first to win the Sir Georg Solti International Conductors Competition in Frankfurt.
