The RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra paid tribute to the 100th birth anniversary of the versatile musician, conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein. In his honour they performed his Serenade, a piece written after Plato's Symposium. The orchestra was accompanied by their long-time chief conductor En Shao and the excellent young Chinese violinist Dan Zhu. Dan Zhu has performed on many concert stages in America, Europe and Asia under the baton of famous conductors, such as Zubin Mehta, Christoph Eschenbach and Tan Dun. He cooperates with renowned composers, such as Krzystof Penderecki, György Kurtág, Wolfgang Rihm and Gian Carlo Menotti.
