Written by ND

The National Symphony Orchestra will tour China (XI'AN i.e.) and South Korea for two weeks in June, the orchestra announced. At the invitation of the Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China, the orchestra's principal conductor, Iván Fischer, will lead the ensemble in five concerts in Macau, Beijing, Xi'an and Shanghai. The NSO last performed in mainland China under Leonard Slatkin in 1999.

The performances are timed to commemorate the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and the United States. The NSO will then continue on to play two performances in Seoul and Goyang, South Korea. The repertory will include the Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky violin concertos (with Leonidas Kavakos as soloist), Tchaikovsky's 5th and Dvorak's 7th symphonies, the overture to Wagner's "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg," and "Western Skies," the new work by the American composer Daniel Kellogg that the symphony will give its world premiere in April.

More Info about the U.S. National Symphony Orchestra

The National Symphony Orchestra, the Kennedy Center's artistic affiliate since 1987, has commissioned dozens of new works, among them Stephen Albert's RiverRun, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Music; Morton Gould's StringMusic, also a Pulitzer Prize-winner; William Bolcolm's Sixth Symphony, and Michael Daughtery's UFO, a concerto for solo percussion and orchestra.

 

In addition to its regular season concerts, the National Symphony Orchestra, under the leadership of its acclaimed Music Director Leonard Slatkin, presents a number of variously themed festivals each season. The annual American Residencies for the Kennedy Center is a program unique to the National Symphony Orchestra and the Center. The Center sends the Orchestra to a different state each year for an intensive period of performances and teaching encompassing full orchestral, chamber, and solo concerts, master classes and other teaching sessions.
