The five-year-old China Philharmonic makes its New York debut this afternoon at Lincoln Center.

The concert features the New York premiere of Xiaogang Ye's Das Lied auf der Erde, a "re-creation" of Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde that makes use of Chinese poetry from the Tang period (618-907 A.D.). Soprano L‹wa Ke sings the solo part.

Also on the program are Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini with pianist Lang Lang; Hua Yanjun and Wu Zuqiang's Moon Reflections; Rimsky-Korsakov's The Tsar's Bride; and Bart‹k's Miraculous Mandarin Suite. Artistic director Long Yu conducts.

The Philharmonic is in the midst of its most ambitious tour, a 40-day trip with stops throughout the United States and in Canada, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Britain, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
