“Full of rhythms and picture evoking, the music has deviated from the traditional expressions of the national music, presenting the co-existence of Chinese and foreign culture.” Xinmin Evening News

Shanghai Odyssey – The Bund is a five-part symphonic work commissioned and performed by the acclaimed Shanghai Chinese Orchestra. German composer Christian Jost’s composition is a bold interpretation of the city's spirit, taking inspiration from the vibrant lifestyle, spectacular cityscape and eclectic mix of old and new of this megalopolis called the Pearl of the Orient. Since its premiere in 2017, this work captivated audiences with its fresh take on Chinese musical forms and soundscapes. The concert is accompanied by spectacular images of the cityscape of Shanghai projected on a large screen. Just like the city itself, the intertwined music and image constantly alternate between liveliness and calm, new beginnings and echoes of the past.
