Shaping the Future of Classical Music Concert

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

Conducted by BMF artistic director Yu Long, the Shaping the Future of Classical Music Concert not only featured a commissioned work by composer Chen Qigang, but also included four Yunnan folk songs sung by the Xiaoshuijing Farmers Choir.

According to Yu, the inclusion of the Farmers Choir was an attempt to provide a platform for singers who have never received any professional modern training.

Chen’s 24-minute long Beixitongyuan was inspired by the traditional Chinese music piece A Parting Tune in Yangguan.
Yu also noted that bringing the 13-year-old Wang Yalun to the stage is the perfect example of the festival’s efforts to bring more attention to young musicians.
