The tour of Russian musicians in China has ended, TASS reports. The symphony orchestra from Novosibirsk demonstrated its art to Chinese listeners. The tour route united three cities. The first concerts, according to the manager of the creative team Nikolai Sizikov, were held in Nanjing. Then the orchestra moved to the capital of China, and from Beijing went to Wuhan.

The concert program mainly consisted of the great Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s works, including excerpts from music for The Nutcracker ballet, a piano concert, and the Fifth Symphony. The program was complemented by works by Aram Khachaturian and Chinese compositions.

The team noted that Chinese viewers had a huge interest in classical music. On New Year's holidays, seven Russian music groups toured the country.

The next trip of the Novosibirsk orchestra to China will take place next fall. Musicians will take part in the music festival, which takes place annually in Wuhan. During the week, the orchestra will present a program of a number of works by Tchaikovsky, including symphonies, suites from ballets, violin and piano concerts.
