Muhai Tang

Muhai Tang, widely respected as the pre-eminent Chinese conductor today, came to international recognition when Herbert von Karajan invited him to conduct the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in its 1983 subscription series. This success led to repeat appearances with the Berlin Philharmonic and invitations from many of the world’s leading orchestras such as the London Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Staatskapelle Dresden, Bayerischer Rundfunk Symphony, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre National de France, Sydney Symphony and the San Francisco Symphony, among many others. He has been working at the highest level for the past 30 years. Previously Chief Conductor of the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, Finnish National Opera, Zurich Chamber Orchestra and currently Music Director of the Belgrade Philharmonic, he received high acclaim recently for his work at the Zurich Opera House, where he conducted two Rossini operas featuring Cecilia Bartoli.

While maintaining a significant career in Europe, he has continued to spend much of his time in Shanghai as Music Director of the Shanghai Philharmonic and Zhejiang Symphony Orchestra as well as guest conducting throughout China. He has also been a tireless champion for Chinese classical music throughout the world. Muhai Tang is now at the helm of the Tianjin Grand Opera and its orchestra.
