About Edinburgh International Festival: Shanghai Symphony Orchestra
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Dvořák Cello Concerto
Shostakovich Symphony No 5
The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra is China’s premier classical ensemble – and an orchestra of global stature. Now in its 140th anniversary year, it has toured the world extensively, praised universally for its immense energy, colour and focus.
The Orchestra’s Music Director Long Yu is a major force in Chinese music – as founder and director of festivals and ensembles across the country and as a charismatic, inspirational conductor with a flair for drama and unbridled entertainment.
They are joined by captivating US cellist Alisa Weilerstein for the melodic magnificence of Dvořák’s achingly passionate Cello Concerto. Orchestra and conductor bring the concert to a resplendent climax with the grotesque humour and rousing celebrations of Shostakovich’s powerful Fifth Symphony.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Shanghai Symphony Orchestra are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
