Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Chinese New Year?
A World Premiere By Pulitzer Prize Winner Du Yun
Ring in the Year of the Pig with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and special guest conductor Elim Chan, an up-and-coming Honk Kong-born maestro who honed her baton-wielding skills in the prestigious Dudamel Fellowship Program! The ensemble also welcomes Taiwanese-Australian violin virtuoso Ray Chen to celebrate the Chinese New Year with a spectacular East-meets-West program that includes works by Huanzhi, Saint-Saens, Ravel, An-Lun Huang, and Tieshan Liu, as well as the exciting world premiere of a brand new piece for opera singers and orchestra by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Du Yun.
Born in Shanghai, China, Du Yun started her musical studies at the age of four and later moved to US shores, receiving a PhD in music composition from Harvard. Fusing together strains of orchestral, opera, chamber, theater, pop, cabaret and Chinese traditional music with mixed media, performance art, electronica and noise, the celebrated composer won her prestigious Pulitzer for the 2017 opera Angel's Bone, a harrowing work about human trafficking in modern times. Her latest LA Phil commission is sure to provoke thoughts and stir the soul with its bold creative vision.
