Tell a good Chinese story with music (Xinyu · Let the sound become the strongest)
I hope that more people can see music works that can represent Chinese cultural elements, let the world know the beauty of Chinese classical melody, and use music to talk about China’s story, the 24th Beijing International Music Festival came to an end.
In the past 23 years, Beijing International Music Festival has insisted that classical music sprouts in China, insists on building bridges for Chinese and foreign cultural exchanges. In this year’s Beijing International Music Festival, our original intention of spreading classical music culture, telling Chinese stories Confidence is not moved. Beijing International Music Festival has been adhering to the concept of "keeping innovation". Holding the highest quality classical music gene, let the audience feel classic; innovation is to seek classical music and the current same frequency resonance, let more people approach music, feel music. This year is the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, the Beijing International Music Festival and the Chinese Music Association Symphony Eliles planned and formed a holiday orchestra composed of 100 party members, with "in the splendid sun" chorus symphony concert to open the curtain, Pay tribute to the Great China Communist Party of 100 Years. This year’s music festival is the subject of "Master and Commemorative".
Looking forward to the vast music history, the footprint of the Seniors Master is like a star of the night sky, and every musicians go into the music world with respect to the master, and naturally, there is also a responsibility to pass this beautiful fire. "Dialogue" is a dimension of this year’s music festival, and we arrange a few Chinese-foreign musicians to perform in the same concert.
Beijing International Music Festival must be a platform for East Western music culture exchanges, but also to tell Chinese stories in the world, so we must have cultural confidence, so that more people have seen world-class art quality.
Over the years, China’s excellent composents have diligently created a lot of classic works, which not only promoted China’s symphony, but also lets the world know more about China.
When I cooperate with some well-known orchestras, I tried to bring the work of Chinese composers. When recording a record, each record must contain Chinese works. I hope that more people can see music works that represent Chinese cultural elements, let the world know the beauty of Chinese classical melody, telling Chinese stories with music. I have been convinced that music is a necessity of life, because music contains the wisdom of the ancestors, a beautiful respect and human dignity. The future of music is young, we must do our utmost to provide young people to provide opportunities for learning, showing opportunities. Many young musicians have walked from Beijing International Music Festival to the World Stage. This year, there is a large number of outstanding young musicians to meet with the audience. This year, we also specially planned the Beijing-Hong Kong and Macao Youth Art Carnival. This is the result of the music festival for many years, "public welfare" "art popularization" and "aesthetic education" concept. Regardless of whether children will become a professional musicians in the future, this wonderful experience will bring positive energy to their lives.
