Conductor Yu Long 
Cello Li-Wei Qin 

Qigang Chen Instants d’un Opéra de Pékin 
Janáček Taras Bulba 
Dvořák Cello Concerto 

Chinese-born and Parisian-trained, Qigang Chen’s music blends East and West in a manner to set the ears tingling. His gossamer homage to Peking opera is a modern perspective on this venerable Chinese music. 

Janáček’s retelling of the story of the Cossack warrior Taras Bulba is startlingly bloodthirsty, and enormously exciting. 

Dvořák’s evergreen Cello Concerto comes from his years in America. Longing for his homeland, he poured his soul into the piece. The marvellous Chinese-Australian cellist Li-Wei Qin will give a glowing performance.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
