NYC: China’s Beijing-based NCPA Orchestra gives new work by Chen Qigang

October 30, 2017

A new work by composer Chen Qigang, Itinéraire d’une illusion, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall, will receive its U.S. premiere Oct. 30, when China’s Beijing-based NCPA Orchestra makes its debut. Chen was music director of the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony. Due to an inflammation in his left arm, pianist Lang Lang has withdrawn, and Haochen Zhang, gold medal winner of the 2009 Van Cliburn Competition, will solo in the Yellow River Concerto. Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2 rounds out the program. (Photo of Chen Qigang by Hong Wang)
