Long Yu—artistic director and chief conductor of the China Philharmonic Orchestra, artistic director of the Beijing International Music Festival, and music director of the Shanghai and Guangzhou Symphony Orchestras—oversees what has quickly become a new tradition for our hometown Phil. For many, the big attraction will be dynamic pianist Yuja Wang, featured in Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, but you'll also hear from esteemed violinist Cho-Liang Lin and cellist Jian Wang.
