Under the Chinese conductor Xu Zhong, the Macao Orchestra will join hands with Dong Fang, a Chinese singer, to welcome the new year with wonderful classical and impressionist music. The renowned Chinese conductor Xu Zhong is the first Asian musician in history to serve as the Artistic Director of the Teatro Massimo Bellini in Italy. Apart from conducting, he will also perform Piano Concerto No. 1, an important piece for the young Beethoven, as a soloist in the concert with the Macao Orchestra, to unfold the beautiful timbre of classical music.
Dong Fang, one of the top ten young mezzo-sopranos of “CCTV gloriously bloom” in China, has a rich and fruity voice and a relaxed and flexible tongue. She was regarded as a “very promising mezzo-soprano” by Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung, a German newspaper. She will sing the soprano part in the concert and present the French composer Maurice Ravel’s Trois poèmes de Mallarmé with the Orchestra. The Macao Orchestra will also perform Ravel’s Pavane pour une infante défunte and Le tombeau de Couperin for the audience, revealing the keen sense of aesthetics of impressionist music.
