Making Shanghai Spring

There are few places right now that have the electricity and the energy that is flowing through the city of Shanghai.

Perhaps you’ve seen pictures of the incredible skyline that’s sprung up in record time. It’s futuristic and sleek: right out of a science fiction movie. If there is a place to be in the 21st century, it feels like it’s on the streets of Shanghai.

Shanghai dazzled me, with the bright lights of the ultramodern Pudong skyline and the thrum of its non-stop vitality. And I fell in love with the romantic, sun-dappled streets of the old French Concession neighbourhood.

But on top of that, it was a revelation to witness first-hand the classical music revolution that’s currently underway in China. I spoke to composers, musicians, and other people from all walks of life. It was a thrill to have had the chance to report back to you what I saw and heard while I was there.

Everyone says China is a classical music hotbed: on Shanghai Spring, you’ll hear proof of that.
