The China National Symphony Summary

The China National Symphony Orchestra is one of the most outstanding professional symphony orchestras in China, and once you experience its performances of Guan’s “First Movement of the Earth Requiem,” Tschaikowski’s “Piano Concerto No. 1,” and Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 7,” there will be no doubt in your mind as to just why they’ve achieved the title of China’s national symphony.

Originally founded as the Central Philharmonic Orchestra of China in 1956, the orchestra was restructured and renamed in 1996. Leading the CNSO into the future are Director Guan Xia (Composer), Laureate Conductor Muhai Tang, Principal Resident Conductor Li Xincao, and Principal Guest Conductor En Shao.

Throughout its history, the China National Symphony Orchestra has collaborated with many world-famous artists in order to bring excellence to its audiences, including famous conductors such as Ormandy, Dutoit, Masur, Slatkin, Rozhestvendsky, Schwarz, and Peress. Other well-known guest artists have included composer and conductor Krzystof Enderecki; instrumentalists Oistrakh, Menuhin, Stern, Mutter, Maisky, Choliang and Lindemann; and vocalists, Giacomini and Jones.

"The China National Symphony Orchestra is a solid, energetic, and meticulously drilled ensemble.” - The Washington Post

"The intonation and range of dynamics were excellent. The orchestra is world class.” - Maestro Maurice Peress
