MISA 9th Closing Concert: Long Yu & the SSO
Long Yu is a name you can't avoid in China's symphony music world. The artistic director and current chief conductor of both the China Philharmonic and the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, as well as music director of Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra and principal guest conductor of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (and, incidentally, holder of Germany's Order of Merit), he's also the co-director of Music in the Summer Air (MISA). To see out the 9th edition of the acclaimed music festival, he'll be conducting the closing concert, featuring 'Concerto for two pianos' by Francis Poulenc, with pianists Louis Lortie and Hélène Mercier, and Mahler's Symphony No. 1 in D Major "Titan."
