Long Yu 50th Birthday Celebrations, Proms and More
by BWW News Desk - Jun 27, 2014

Music has an almost unmatched potential to inspire, to move, on occasion to lift an entire society in a cultural exploration, in the pursuit of cultural ideals. And there are great figures, teachers, performers - artists – who show us the way. Sometimes their impact is so great that their work reaches people who have never even heard of them, nor dream that they have somehow impacted their life. One such figure is Long Yu, the preeminent Chinese conductor, who led the drive to establish a hunger for classical music in his country – coming out of a time when it was forbidden to so much as hum anything other than a prescribed list of patriotic songs – and building its great institutions, among them the China Philharmonic (which he founded in 2000), the Shanghai Symphony, the Guangzhou Symphony and the Beijing Music Festival (of all of which he is music director). Fittingly, Long Yu will mark his 50th birthday next month with a concert to mark the opening of the MISA Festival – a new event that Long Yu co-directs with Charles Dutoit geared towards bringing young people towards classical music.
