Celebrating its 50th Anniversary Season, the Albany Symphony Orchestra performs an exciting program, “East Meets West,” conducted by Music Director Claire Fox Hillard and featuring the internationally renowned guzheng artist Su Chang.   Chang will be featured in “Identity:  Zhongshang Zhuang,” which is a collaboration between American composer Michael Gordon Shapiro and Chinese producer/composer Victor Cheng.  The “Identity Concerto” is a striking and distinctive piece that combines the richness of the Western orchestra with a 3800-year-old Chinese folk instrument.  The orchestra will also perform Paul Hindemith’s 20th century masterpiece, “Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber,” the second movement of which features themes from Weber’s music for Schiller’s Chinese based tale Turandot (which was also was the inspiration for Pucinni’s opera).   Rounding out the concert will be Weber’s Overture from Oberon and “Symphonic Poem on 3 Notes:  La-Si-Do,” by Oscar Award winning composer Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
