China’s finest young musicians make their UK debut with two iconic works from the western classical tradition and recent music from one of China’s leading composers.
With its virtuoso solo piano part and a sublime slow movement, Beethoven sets the template for the heroic Romantic concerto, while Shostakovich’s mighty Fifth Symphony has become synonymous with defiance, survival and solace.
