Composer Andrew Webb-Mitchell’s new Symphonic Poem Night of Sevens received world premiere at Changsha Concert Hall on September 1st, 2019 under the baton of conductor Volker Hartung and the Cologne New Philharmonic.
The work is inspired by the traditional Chinese folk story The Cowherd and the Weaver Girl. Having lived and worked in China for many years and being a fluent speaker of Mandarin, the composer wanted to express his love for and appreciation of the Chinese culture and people by choosing a traditional and much-loved Chinese story with a simple narrative.
