Founded nearly 50 years ago, the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra has become one of China's most prestigious ensembles. In the Concert Hall, the GSO performs with international piano sensation Lang Lang in Yin Chengzong's crowd-pleasing Yellow River Concerto. The program also includes Ye Xiaogang's Suite on Cantonese Music as well as the Washington premiere of Chen Qigang's Iris dévoilée, an orchestral suite that depicts various characteristics of women. Three singers--one of whom appears in traditional Qing dynasty costume--join three Chinese instrumentalists and the GSO for Chen's masterwork.
