Debut in Hangzhou

Alessandro Crudele travels to China this month to conduct the Zhejiang Symphony Orchestra for the first time, in the avant-garde city of Hangzhou.

The programme of the concert on 26th July 2019 features Shostakovic’s Violin Concerto No. 1 with the Chinese soloist Zhang Ti, a complex and deep composition written during the censorship years, and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 7, maybe Dvorak’s most ambitious symphony.

A frequent guest in China, Alessandro Crudele has conducted there regularly in past seasons. Most recently, he conducted the Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra, in November 2018, where he met great acclaim.

As Crudele’s profile continues to grow in Asia, he is scheduled to conduct the Shaghai Philharmonic Orchestra in the New Year’s Concert next December at the Shanghai Symphony Hall.
