Concert Description

The DSO returns to New York for a concert devoted solely to symphonic and vocal works of Chinese-born composer Xiaogang Ye. Entitled SONGS OF THE EARTH, the program not only features the orchestra with Chinese-born, Yale- and Juilliard-trained conductor Yongyan Hu but also highlights outstanding soloists from the United States and beyond: Taiwanese-born violinist Cho-Liang Lin, Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman, Chinese tenor Yijie Shi, baritone Chen-Ye Yuan, zheng player Ji Wei and boy soprano Liu Shen. Also appearing in the world premiere of the opening work, Twilight of the Himalayas, is the New York Choral Society.

This concert marks the first time that a major American orchestra performs a full concert in the United States of symphonic works by a single composer of Chinese descent.
