China National Symphony Orchestra will make their return to Australia this year after an absence of six years. Over 80 musicians make up this world-class orchestra under the baton of CNSO’s conductor Maestro Li Xincao.

They will perform one concert only at Sydney Opera House on 28 November, Adelaide Town Hall 1 December and Melbourne Arts Centre 2 December.

The concert also features violinist Lu Siqing, the first Asian prize winner of the Paganini Competition. For the Orchestra’s Australian tour 2023, the CNSO will perform a selection of masterpieces including Overture Dance of The Yao People, The Butterfly Lovers composed by He Zhanhao and Chen Gang and Beethoven Symphony No. 7 in A Major op. 92.
