Following the previous season of conducting, Yu Ji once again leads the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra to perform works by Sibelius. "Violin Concerto in D minor," performed in the first half, has a strong Nordic style and a tragic mood filled with tenacity and optimism. It is a portrayal of Finnish nationality. The "Second Symphony" in the second half is Sibelius' "Pastoral," solemn and lively, an epic masterpiece without words.
