Jonathan Lo, Conductor
'...always in control, undoubtedly destined for great things'
Richard Wilcox Bachtrack

‘Jonathan Lo and the Xi’an Symphony Orchestra brought the invention 
and the concept of the music clearly to life with such transparency...
music making that is both technically impressive and passionately expressive.’
