Overview

East Meets West Orchestral Concert combines classical music from the East and West, including two tremendously acclaimed Chinese masterpieces ‘Butterfly Lovers’ Violin Concerto and ‘Yellow River' Piano Concerto, alongside other enchanting works. Popular music maestro Guy Noble will direct the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra featuring an all-star cast of Australian talented emerging soloists.

The beautiful yet haunting ‘Butterfly Lovers’ Violin Concerto is a synthesis of Eastern and Western music traditions, juxtaposing pentatonic melodies with a Western harmonic support. This world-known concerto, based on an ancient legend, is also known as the Chinese ‘Romeo and Juliet’, celebrating romantic love.

Another Chinese masterpiece ‘Yellow River’ Piano Concerto integrates a classic post-romantic music structure with passion, beauty and strength, along with technically advanced solo phases, which represents the high spirits of Chinese people passing through generations.

Soloists:
Tony Lee, winner of the 2016 Sydney International Piano Competition
Anna Da Silva Chen, one of Australia's leading young violinists
Victoria Lambourn, Brisbane-born mezzo soprano
Sharon Zhai, Soprano from Opera Australia
Zhao Liang, a popular Adelaide-based Guzheng musician
