"A mature group with a vital sound." —London Times

"[Tan Dun’s] language, a mix of Hollywood grandeur and primal, percussive vitality, was consistent throughout the evening, yet each segment had its own distinct sound." —Sydney Morning Herald

"[Tan Dun’s] music — which at one moment is as tonal as Beethoven and as melodic as Gershwin and the next delves into sounds that, before Cage, were considered mere noise — reveals a remarkable range of influences, from Chinese folk song to the Internet." —UT San Diego

Originally founded as the Central Philharmonic Orchestra of China in 1956, the orchestra was restructured and renamed in 1996. Leading the CNSO into the future are Director Guan Xia (Composer), Laureate Conductor Muhai Tang, Principal Resident Conductor Li Xincao, and Principal Guest Conductor En Shao.

The CNSO is made up of an outstanding team of instrumentalists, many of whom have won prizes in national and international competitions. . . .
