Now in its seventh year, the MSO's Chinese New Year concert has become one of Australia's major cultural highlights.
In 2020, eminent Chinese conductor Yi Zhang leads this unique musical celebration featuring one of the most important Chinese compositions in the world today.
The Yellow River Piano Concerto is more than music; it's a symbol of the irrepressible spirit of the Chinese people. Pianist Jieni Wan makes her MSO debut with this passionate and thrilling concerto.
Also on the program are works by Melbourne-based Chinese composers Julian Yu and Wanghua Chu.
