Taipei Symphony Orchestra

Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the Taipei Symphony has grown from an ensemble of modest scale to a forceful musical presence known for its breadth of programming, extensive international appearances, and commitment to cultural diplomacy. The program’s centerpiece, Gordon Shi-Wen Chin’s poetic Double Concerto, features the prodigious talent of two Taiwan-born, US-based virtuosi: Paul Huang, a winner of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and a cherished presence on the Washington Performing Arts season; and Felix Fan, the relentlessly creative, collaborative cross-disciplinary cellist and member of the Flux Quartet for whom this concerto was written. On the podium is Jahja Ling, widely credited as an orchestra-builder, who led the now-thriving San Diego Symphony to great renown as its music director.

This performance is made possible in part through the generous support of Susan S. Angell.

On sale August 26.

This performance is not presented by Strathmore.
