China has produced other respected conductors, like Muhai Tang and Xian Zhang, but they are either working overseas or have struggled to lead at home, where politics often matters as much as artistic merit.
At Tuesday’s Carnegie Hall concert with the Shanghai Symphony, the Chinese pianist Lang Lang will play Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto. Then Mr. Yu will conduct “Iris Dévoilée,” a rapturous piece by the Chinese-born composer Chen Qigang, which blends Western orchestral music with Beijing Opera and traditional Chinese instruments.
“This is a piece about Chinese culture,” he said, noting how the work describes various aspects of women’s lives. “In China we like to say things indirectly. Chinese like to give some distance, to leave something to the imagination. That is the best way.”
