Shanghai Symphony Orchestra

Russia meets China at the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra’s summer concert.

Founded in 1879, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra is one of China’s oldest Western classical ensembles. At the Elbphilharmonie Summer Festival, the orchestra visits together with principal conductor Yu Long – two Chinese works set the scene for Shostakovich’s ambiguous Fifth Symphony.

The concert was broadcast live at www.elbphilharmonie.com and at the public screening on the Elbphilharmonie forecourt. The concert is not available as video on demand.
