New Original Music from Shen Yun's 2016 Dance Production; Works by Dvorak, Brahms, and Saint-Saens; Composition for three erhus and Orchestra; Performances by Shen Yun's Celebrated Singers; Conducted by Milen Nahev.
A refreshing new sound. Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra blends the spirit of ancient Chinese music with the power of a Western orchestra in what critics are calling a break-through in classical music.
Drawing upon five millennia of culture. Shen Yun's compositions create a sound at once timeless and unique. Western strings, percussion, woodwinds, and brass accentuate ancient Chinese instruments like the two-stringed erhu and the plucked pipa. Combining the exquisite beauty of Chinese melodies and the grandeur of a Western symphony, Shen Yun is blazing a brand-new path.
