On 5 November, Shiyeon Sung makes her debut with the Concertgebouworkest, conducting the world premiere of a work by Tan Dun as well as compositions by Bartók, Verbey, and Yun.
Due to Covid-19 related travel restrictions in China, Tan Dun will unfortunately be unable to travel to Amsterdam to conduct the Royal Concertgebouworkest. His new work Three Muses in Video Game, written for the orchestra and principal trombonist Jörgen van Rijen, will receive its world premiere nonetheless. Shiyeon Sung is ready and willing to conduct the trombone concerto.
The programme will also contain Lumen ad Finem Cuniculi by Dutch composer Theo Verbey, Muak by Isang Yun, and Béla Bartók’s Suite The Miraculous Mandarin. Ms. Sung makes her debut with the Concertgebouworkest.
