HUANG RuoFolk Songs for Orchestra
HAYDNCello Concerto no.1
DELIUSOn Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring
STRAVINSKYThe Rite of Spring


New York-based Chinese composer Huang Ruo has handpicked four beloved folk songs, reimagining them into Folk Songs for Orchestra with his vibrant and inventive voice. His composition draws inspiration from a mix of Chinese ancient and folk music, Western avant-garde and experimental music, natural and processed sound, rock and jazz. Vasily Petrenko conducts the annual National Day Concert with Li-Wei Qin joining for Haydn’s enduring Cello Concerto, along with spring-inspired compositions by Delius and Stravinsky.


The concert runs approximately 1 hour 45 minutes with an intermission.
