It’s time for another Sunday afternoon of beautiful classical music in Edinburgh’s Usher Hall.
We’re delighted to have in our Sunday Classics series one of China’s most exciting orchestras, the China Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra. Appropriately, the concert will begin with the leading Chinese/American composer Tan Dun’s musical excerpts from the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, , a cello concerto created from the soundtrack featuring the Chinese soloist Jiapeng Nie.
Following this, the Orchestra will be joined by the brilliant young British violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen in two masterworks for orchestra and violin – Chausson’s Poème and Saint-Saëns’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso.
The second half of the concert will feature two of Respighi’s monumental tone poems, Fountains of Rome and, his ultimate work, Pines of Rome.
