On 31 January 2017, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and soloist Alison Balsom will perform the US premiere of Qigang Chen’s Joie Eternelle for trumpet and orchestra. The 20-minute piece will be featured as part of the New York Philharmonic’s Chinese New Year celebration. Chen, who was born in China but has lived in France for over 30 years, blends Western and Eastern influences in his music, a unique cultural and artistic perspective that he will share throughout North America and China following this special performance.
