 Chords of the New Year·Spring Festival Symphony Orchestra Concert









这些民歌,曾经伴随着我们先辈的婚丧嫁娶、迎来送往、春种秋收、喜怒哀乐, 它们是具有鲜活艺术灵性的生命释放,是具有深刻文化内涵的心灵记录,是具有独立认知价值的历史传承,与祖祖辈辈的民风民俗共生共存、相依相和,形成了我们独特的民族音乐遗产。



The Chords of the New Year· Spring Festival Symphony Concert is divided into three segments: Spring Festival Overture, the Chinese Sights and Sounds suite, and classical Western pieces, comprising eight instrumentals based on traditional Chinese folk songs and two classical Western pieces. The concert is approximately 45 minutes.


The concert was specially organized for the Happy Chinese New Year event. Its traditional Chinese instrumentals match the strong atmosphere of the Spring Festival, presenting the fine traditional Chinese culture and the characteristics of ethnic regions. These form a seamless fusion with two familiar Western classics that complement Chinese folk songs, presenting a Spring Festival event that brings different cultures together.


Folk songs are important cultural symbols that are passed around by all ethnic groups around the world, as well as the source of all human musical activities. Chinese folk songs can be generally divided into four types: mountain songs, “little tunes”, work songs known as haozi, and narrative songs.


Once upon a time, these folk songs accompanied weddings, funerals, host etiquette protocols, agricultural activities, and emotions of ancient Chinese. They are artistic expressions of life, incorporeal records with profound cultural significance, and historical heritage with independent value in their own right. Folk songs have complemented and co-existed with ancient Chinese folk customs, and became a unique form of Chinese musical heritage.
