On April 30th, the China Philharmonic Orchestra staged a grand performance in Jakarta to start their Maritime-Silk-Road tour. Among the audience were former Indonesian president H.E.Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie, special advisor to Indonesian Culture and Education Minister Mr. Arie Budhiman, Chairman of the Regional Representative Council (DPD) of Indonesia Mr Irman Gusman, Director of Public Dimplomacy of Indonesian Minisry of Foriegn Affairs Mr Al Busyra Basnur, Deputy Director of the Asia Pacific Marketing Ministry of Tourism Mr Jordi Paliama, Chairman of the Friendship Association between Indonesia and China (PPIT) Mr Bondan Gunawan as well as ambassadors and diplomats in Jakarta.

Chinese Ambassador to Indonesia H.E. Xie Feng attended the event and delivered an opening remarks.

He said, "under the leadership of President Xi Jinping and President Joko Widodo, China and Indonesia has been aligning our development strategies and promoting practical cooperation across the board. We have now established three vice-premier-level cooperation mechanisms in political-security ties, business cooperation and people-to-people exchanges. The China Philharmonic's Silk Road World Tour, as one of the significant people-to-people exchanges programs, will surely strengthen our cultural exchanges and friendship and usher in a new chapter for the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Indonesia."

Along with Western classical music, the orchestra also played some Indonesian and Chinese favorites.

Indonesian folk dancers opened the show with traditional dance to welcome guests. Young local musician Putri Ayu followed with her interpretation of "Jasmine Flower", a Chinese folk song popular both at home and abroad. Then, under the baton of conductor Xia Xiaotang, the Chinese orchestra gave a symphonic rendition of the much loved Indonesian song, "Ayo Mama", and the famous Chinese work, "Moon Reflected on Second Spring".

"They did a marvelous job: there was an Indonesian piece, there were two Chinese pieces, and the violin concerto of Mendelssohn, and the Symphony No. 7 of Beethoven. They were really world class, obviously," said Ilham A. Habibie, vice chairman of Habibie Center Foundation.

The performance has enjoyed sustained applause from the audience and wide coverage of the local media.
