Classical music goes outdoors

THE city's first outdoor classical music festival will take place later this summer.

Shanghai Symphony Orchestra will host "Music in the Summer Air" from August 12 to 22.

Yu Long, musical director of SSO, and Charles Dutoit, principal conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, will guide their two ensembles as well as the Shanghai Quartet and the China Trio.

More than 20 world class musicians will perform at the festival, including Sumi Jo, Shen Yang, Wei Song, Liao Changyong, Yang Jie, Li Yundi and Kirill Gerstein.

"I am very excited to work again with my dear friend Yu Long, who is always behind the great classical musical events taking place in China," Dutoit said. "Together, we are aiming at a very successful festival ... and hopefully it will become one of the most important musical festivals in Asia."

Tickets will range from 30 yuan (US$4.42) to 300 yuan.
