Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Mikko Franck

Recognised as one of the finest groups in Europe, the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra are known for their great versatility and ability to tackle all manner of repertoires. Conducted by Mikko Franck, their Chinese program will include Beethoven, Debussy and Ravel, as well as some other French composers.

Heir to the first philharmonic orchestra created by French radio in 1937, the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra was re-formed in 1976 by Pierre Boulez to share the skills of a range of personnel and take on the full spectrum of repertoires. As such, the orchestra’s 141 musicians are equally happy to turn their hand to classical and contemporary works.
The young Chinese cellist Trey Lee, a solo member of the orchestra, will join the tour.
The other group of Radio France, the Orchestre National de France, records the soundtrack of Luc Besson's latest film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, starring the great Chinese actor Kris Wu, Cara Delevingne and Rihanna. The music is composed by Alexandre Desplat (Oscar-winning music composer for The Grand Budapest Hotel by Wes Anderson). The Orchestre National de France is expected to perform in China in 2018 on the occasion of the centenary of Debussy's death.

Finnish conductor, Mikko Franck has been the music director of the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra since 2015. He succeeds Myung-whun Chung. Regular guest of the orchestra since 2003, he is one of today’s most noteworthy conductors for his mastery of a wide repertoire of concert and opera. This is his first tour in Asia since his assumption of duties at Radio France.
