East Meets West Orchestral Concert is a rare opportunity for audiences to hear traditional and contemporary music from the east and the west, including two immensely acclaimed Chinese classics rarely performed live on Australian stages, Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto and Yellow River Piano Concerto.
Popular Sydney music maestro Guy Noble will conduct the Canberra, Adelaide and Sydney concerts. Brisbane-born Dane Lam, Principal Conductor for Xi’an Symphony Orchestra and Opera Queensland’s resident conductor, will connect the Brisbane performance.
Guest artists include award winning pianist Tony Lee, violinist Sun Yi, Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s Associate Concertmaster, leading guzheng player Angie Liu, multi award winning Opera Australia soprano Sharon Zhai and one of Australia’s brightest young mezzo sopranos Victoria Lambourn, Brisbane-born who lives in Victoria. The artists will be joined by Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Symphony Orchestra and A 50-piece orchestra (musicians from local leading symphony orchestras).
The concerts are an Image China cultural & arts event organised by China Arts and Entertainment Group Ltd (CAEG) presented by Ausfeng and the Oz-Sino Association for Advancement of Culture & Arts. They aim to introduce traditional and contemporary Chinese performing arts to audiences around the world. Since its inception in 2009 Ausfeng has presented numerous inspirational works at venues across the globe.
