Guangzhou Symphony Youth Orchestra

50 años de música y amistad

Spain and the People's Republic of China established diplomatic relations in March 1973, which means that this year marks the 50th anniversary of that entente. Since then, the two countries have developed a stable framework of relations and cooperation in the institutional, cultural and economic spheres. To mark the occasion, and in collaboration with the China Cultural Centre in Madrid, the Guangzhou Symphony Youth Orchestra, founded in 2011 as a subsidiary of the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra and the first youth music ensemble in China to be organised and managed by a professional orchestra, will visit Madrid for the first time.

Conducted by Jing Huan and with the acclaimed Jian Wang as cello soloist, the more than one hundred members of the orchestra will perform a programme for the people of Madrid in which both Chinese and Spanish music will be to the fore. The evening’s performance will begin with Metropolis, an orchestral tour de force written by composer Zhou Tian that exudes lyricism and rhythmic vitality; and Zhuang Zhou’s Dream / Cello Concerto in D Minor “The Disillusioned Dream” by Zhao Jiping. After the intermission, we will have the opportunity to listen to España, a rhapsody for orchestra by French composer Alexis Emmanuel Chabrier, followed by Suites No. 1 and No. 2 from Manuel de Falla’s Tres sombreros de copa  (Three Top Hats)
