From his first orchestral composition Festival Overture while studying abroad, to his many symphonic masterpieces in his later years, the late MaestroZhu Jian’er stands as the unshakable cornerstone in the history of contemporary Chinese symphonic music. But apart from this musical genre, the Maestro has also left behind a treasure trove of works covering orchestral, chamber, folk instrumental, choral and dance drama music. Among them, many have become timeless classics. The fruit of his work, in both volume and range, is virtually unrivalled.

Chen Xieyang, who had been a partner in music making with the maestro for two decades, will conduct the HKCO and suona virtuoso Hu Chenyun, as a tribute to this trailblazer of Chinese symphonic music!
