One of China’s finest orchestras makes its Bridgewater Hall debut with an evening of music bridging East and West. The China Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra opens its first Manchester concert with excerpts from a groundbreaking movie soundtrack – Tan Dun’s Oscar-winning score to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, featuring cellist Jiapeng Nie. Conductor Daye Lin then brings us closer to home with the help of the outstanding Tamsin Waley-Cohen, star of not one but two romantic French showcases of the violinist’s art – before a trip to the Eternal City with Ottorino Respighi’s vivid portraits.
