The Philadelphia Orchestra is proud of its deep commitment to cultural diplomacy and exchange around the globe. This year the Orchestra has a renewed five-year strategic partnership with the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing and is pleased to once again present the Centre’s Orchestra, along with two special guest artists and a program rich with cultural exchange. The concert opens with the U.S. premiere of a new Violin Concerto, commissioned for the Centre’s 10th anniversary and performed by Chinese sensation Ning Feng. Gautier Capuçon joins with a performance of Chen Qigang’s haunting Reflections of a Disappearing Time, for cello and orchestra. Brahms’s Symphony No. 4 closes the evening with a nod to the cultural exchange between our two orchestras as the Philadelphians perform this work for Chinese audiences in Beijing in May 2017.
