Shanghai Symphony Orchestra
Long YuConductor

The Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Long Yu make their first appearance at the Proms. They are joined by Eric Lu, winner of the 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition, for Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 with its quasi-operatic humour and wistful slow movement. The programme also includes Chinese composer Qigang Chen’s evocative tone-poem The Five Elements and Rachmaninov’s triptych of Symphonic Dances: a passionate Allegro, an uneasy waltz and, finally, a ferocious dance of death.

Broadcast on BBC Four on Friday 6 September
