The Shanghai Conservatory Chinese Orchestra was established in 1958, drawing on former students of major Chinese conservatories to form an ensemble of sixty players. In the 1960s the orchestra, under well known conductors such as Fan Chengwu and Chen Xiyang, performed popular revolutionary ballets and stage-works such as The White-Haired Girl, The Red Detachment of Women and The Thunderstorm. More recent performances have included Swan Lake and Tang Ji Ge De. The orchestra gives regular concerts of Western classical repertoire under its own conductors and under the direction of distinguished guest conductors. For the purposes of the present recording the orchestra has been augmented from other Shanghai orchestras and includes some eighty players.
