On January 14th, the NCPA presented its first “Weekend Concert” in 2023. Themed “A Very Short History of Music”, the Normcore Quartet of the China NCPA Orchestra takes the audience on a journey through time, reflecting on the long history of music development.

The first “Weekend Concert” was held on January 13th, 2008 at the Concert Hall of the NCPA. Since 2021, “Weekend Concerts” has launched the series of “Special Chamber Concert”, which is dedicated to the public. The concerts highlight in-depth interpretations of the classic chamber works, allowing audiences to better understand the unique charm of chamber music.

At the pre-concert talk of the performance, guest GAO Jian shared with the audience about the appreciation of chamber music and the performance form, and gave an overview of the performance, leading the audience on an exciting journey of chamber music.

The NCPA “Weekend Concerts” will continue to be held at 10:30AM in the Concert Hall or Multi-functional Theatre every weekend. Together with renowned orchestras and artists from at home and abroad, the NCPA will keep presenting professional, knowledgeable, popular and interesting performance for music lovers. Meanwhile, conductors, performers and renowned scholars will be invited to impart knowledge, introduce programmes, discuss culture and share music, offering the high-quality artistic experience for audiences.

In 2023, the NCPA “Weekend Concerts” will deliver a richer and more diverse range of performances, bringing classical music works and professional music knowledge to audiences.
