About the performance

The MSO and some of Melbourne’s finest Chinese-Australian musical talent come together for a very special event dedicated to the world. Join us for a globe-spanning program that demonstrates the power of music to bring us together in harmony.

  • Violin prodigy Christian Li, who in 2020 became the youngest-ever artist signed by the Decca Classics record label, joins the MSO and Principal Conductor in Residence Benjamin Northey to perform Spring from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
  • Following her recital with Artistic Ambassador Lu Siqing in 2019, accomplished Chinese-Australian pianist Angela Li appears alongside Melbourne-based professional Pipa player Yang Ying. Before moving to Australia, Ying performed with the China National Traditional Orchestra to great acclaim across Asia and Europe.
  • Beethoven was criticised in 1801 for his ballet music “paying little regard to the dancing” – but as we now know, the young composer was destined to be much more than a ballet master. His only full-length ballet, The Creatures of Prometheus includes musical ideas he would build on in the famed Eroica Symphony, which would premiere two years later.
  • A unique blend of music from both eastern and western masters, this program also includes works by Chopin and China’s leading 20th century and contemporary composers, Xiogang Ye, Zuqiang Wu and Grammy-nominated Zhou Tian.

This performance is supported by the Li Family Trust and presented in collaboration with Arts Centre Melbourne.

演出简介
墨尔本交响乐团和澳大利亚最出色的华裔音乐天才齐聚一堂,专门为全世界举办一场特殊的活动。敬请加入我团的全球计划,体验音乐让人民和谐相处的力量。

  • 小提琴天才李映衡于2020年成为有史以来最年轻的德卡经典唱片签约艺术家,他将与和首席指挥家本杰明·诺西共同演绎维瓦尔第的《四季·春》。
  • 继2019年与我团艺术大使吕思清同台演奏后,成就斐然的澳洲华人钢琴家李沈虹今年将与墨尔本专业琵琶演奏家杨缨同台合作。杨缨在定居澳大利亚之前,曾随中国民族乐团在亚欧多国演出,获得如潮好评。
  • 1801年,曾有人批评贝多芬的芭蕾乐曲“忽视舞蹈”;然而年轻的贝多芬取得的成就,将远超芭蕾大师所能取得的音乐成就;他两年之后问世的作品《英雄交响曲》,便是借鉴了他唯一的长篇芭蕾舞剧《普罗米修斯》中所包含的音乐思想。
  • 今年的音乐会特别融合了东西方大师的音乐曲目,包括贝多芬、维瓦尔第、肖邦以及中国20世纪和当代著名作曲家叶小纲、吴祖强及格莱美提名音乐人周天等人的作品。

此次演出得到李氏家族信托的大力支持,MSO与墨尔本艺术中心合作出品。
