In celebration of the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra’s 60th anniversary, the GSO launched its opening program of the 2017/18 season last Sunday (24/9) with the world premiere of Krzysztof Penderecki’s Symphony No. 6 (Chinese Poems), featuring baritone Chen-Ye Yuan. This Symphony No. 6, co-commissioned by the GSO and the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra, is inspired by Chinese literary culture, with German translations of Tang Dynasty poetry. The sold-out season-opening celebratory program at the Xinghai Concert Hall was led by GSO Music Director Long Yu.
