New Music from Old Friends

by swisscham in Culture & Society

Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit and Chinese pianist WANG Yuja will perform classical works inspired by the ocean, taking audiences through rough seas and calm waters. XU Jingxi reports in Guangzhou. Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit will stage his collaboration with the UK’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Beijing on Friday and in Guangzhou on Sunday, joined by his longtime collaborator, Chinese pianist WANG Yuja. Dutoit first met Wang 10 years ago when she was 16. Her teacher at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, Gary Graffman, who was also the instructor of Chinese pianist Lang Lang, asked the conductor to audition Wang. The Swiss conductor and the Chinese pianist are a perfect match.
