On the first leg of its Asian tour, Maestro CHEN Xieyang and the dynamic Suzhou Symphony Orchestra bring to the Singaporean audience a daring programme featuring Prokofiev’s epic re-telling of a universally beloved tale of love and the diametrically powerful realism of Zhu Jian’Er’s sonic world.

Under the baton of Maestro CHEN, the SZSO showcases its technical virtuosity and musical maturity in consecutive execution of all three Prokofiev suites of Romeo and Juliet.

Educated at the “Tchaikovsky” Conservatory in Moscow and greatly influenced by Soviet composers like Prokofiev, Zhu Jian’Er is regarded as China’s forerunner in the symphonic art. The SZSO pays tribute to him with a poignant rendition of his monumental work, the Symphony No. 2, which is a musical narrative of Chinese history viewed through the prism of Western-style symphony. Completed in 1987, the symphony was a critical success at its premiere in the 13th Shanghai Spring International Music Festival conducted by CHEN Xieyang.

One of the most revered musicians in China, CHEN Xieyang has spearheaded the development of symphony orchestra through the generations. With Mo. CHEN at the helm, the musicians of the SZSO hail from 19 countries and territories. Established only in November 2016, the Suzhou Symphony Orchestra has already presented a well-rounded symphonic season, fully implemented chamber music and education outreach series, co-hosted opera and ballet productions, completed several international and domestic tours, and organised international music competitions.
