Concert Hall of the Central Conservatory of Music

 

The Concert Hall of Central Conservatory of Music is close to the Fuxingmen Cloverleaf, which is a few minutes' drive from the Tian'anmen Square. The hall was historically known as the residence of Prince Chun and the birthplace of Emperor Kuang-hsu of the Qing Dynasty.  Today, it is a popular place to hold concerts and other cultural activities.

As a matter of fact, many Chinese musicians spread their fame from here. Among them are Zhou Guangren, Guo Shuzhen, Lin Yaoji, Liu Shikun, Yin Chengzong, Xue Wei, Yuan Chenye and Lang Lang. In addition, it is has become a favorite place where a number of active modern composers in China, including Wu Zuqiang, Du Mingxin, Tan Dun, Guo Wenjing, Chenyi, Xiaogang Ye, Chen Qigang and Qu Xiaosong, presented their maiden works.

Because of its unique style of traditional Chinese architecture and its affiliation with the CENTRAL CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC-the only nationwide key institute of higher learning among all schools of art in China , the Concert Hall also attracts many renowned musicians and orchestras from all over the world to come to present their master classes. The musicians include Lord Yehudi Menuhin, Maestro Luciano Pavarotti, Maestro Isaac Stern, Yo-Yo Ma,  Maestro Vladimir Ashkenazy, Maestro Seiji Ozawa, Maestro Zubin Mehta and Maestro Carles Dutoit; and the orchestras include the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, the French National Symphony Orchestra and the Israel philharmonic Orchestra.  The fantastic traditional Chinese architectural art and the excellent acoustics impressed them deeply.

It is often chosen by the foreign embassies in Beijing to hold concerts for their musicians visiting China.

After a recent facelift, the Concert Hall is more than ever ideal for musical entertainments and social activities.
