NCPA to present online concerts for housebound audience

From the quartet of Beethoven to the serenade of Mozart, a series of classical music performances will be staged online by China's National Center for the Performing Arts (NCPA) from Saturday for housebound audience due to the epidemic.

Titled "Spring Online Concert," the musical series is aimed at delivering a message of hope and passing on strength through music amid the fight against the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic, according to the NCPA website.

Artists from China NCPA Orchestra will bring classical music to audiences online in the first four concerts of the series, performing music works including "String Quartet No. 4 in C Minor" by Beethoven, "Piano Quartet in A Minor" by Mahler, "String Quartet No. 1 in D Major" by Tchaikovsky, and "Serenade in G Major" by Mozart.

The weekly online music concert will last until the NCPA resumes normal performances.
