The major repertoires of the program include:
Symphony: Ode to the Sixth Patriarch, Huineng by Julian Yu. This large-scale symphonic work is based on the life and development of the Sixth Chinese Zen Buddhist Patriarch, Huineng, and the first three movements “Seeking the Dharma”, “Mastering the Dharma”, and “Establishing the Dharma” will be performed. The composer subtly combines contemporary and traditional culture, using the traditional Western symphonic genre and modern composition techniques to express the depths of Huineng’s philosophical thought and spiritual height.
Yellow River Piano Concerto, and many other familiar Chinese repertoires with Western symphonic arrangements.
