About the performance

Celebrate the Year of the Rat with the MSO! Enjoy works by world famous Melbourne-based Chinese composers Wanghua Chu and Julian Yu.

Now in its seventh year, the MSO’s Chinese New Year concert has become one of Australia’s major cultural highlights.

The Yellow River Piano Concerto is more than music; it’s a symbol of the irrepressible spirit of the Chinese people. Based on the Yellow River Cantata by Xian Xinghai (the first Chinese student ever accepted into the Paris Conservatoire for composition) the piano concerto was composed by Chengzong Yin, Wanghua Chu, Lihong Sheng and Zhuang Liu. It has been recorded by many Chinese superstar pianists, including Lang Lang and Yundi Li. Fresh from performances with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, China Philharmonic Orchestra and Konzerthausorchester Berlin, pianist Jieni Wan makes her MSO debut with this passionate and thrilling concerto.

This program of Chinese masterpieces is complemented by Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony No.3, completed in 1842. Dedicated to Queen Victoria, it was Felix Mendelssohn’s last symphony – inspired by a trip to Holyrood Palace, home of Mary Queen of Scots. Noble, lyrical and majestic – it’s the perfect finale to a night dedicated to a blend of eastern and western musical traditions.

The MSO’s annual Chinese New Year concert is supported by the Li Family Trust and presented in collaboration with Arts Centre Melbourne for Asia TOPA.

演出介绍
敬请前来,与MSO同庆鼠年,一同欣赏世界著名的墨尔本华裔作曲家储望华和于京君的华美乐章!

MSO的中国新年音乐会已迎来了第七个年头,现已成为澳大利亚一大文化盛事。

本场音乐会上将演出的《黄河钢琴协奏曲》不只是音乐,更象征了中国人民不屈不挠的精神。此曲以冼星海(史上第一位考入巴黎音乐学院作曲班的中国学生)所作《黄河大合唱》为基础,由殷承宗、储望华、盛礼洪、刘庄四位作曲家合作创作。很多中国钢琴名家都录演过这一曲目,包括郎朗和李云迪。钢琴演奏家万捷旎刚刚结束了与上海交响乐团、皇家苏格兰国家交响乐团、中国爱乐乐团以及柏林音乐厅乐团的合作演出,如今将在与MSO合作的首次演出中,为观众献上这一充满激情的钢琴协奏曲。

除中国大师级曲目之外,本次演出曲目还有门德尔松的《苏格兰第三交响曲》。这一曲目在1842年完成,是向维多利亚女王的献作,也是费里克斯·门德尔松的最后一首交响曲。门德尔松创作此曲的灵感,来自于他参观苏格兰女王玛丽的宫殿——荷里路德宫的经历。此曲高贵宏伟、情感充沛,作为这一东西方音乐传承交融之夜的收尾曲目,可谓再合适不过。1

MSO一年一度的中国新年音乐会由李氏家族信讬支持,MSO与墨尔本艺术中心合作出品。
