A concert marking the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and South Korea was held at the Seoul Arts Center on Saturday.

More than 100 musicians from China's National Symphony Orchestra joined hands with their South Korean counterparts, staging a musical feast for over 2,000 audience members from both China and South Korea.

Conducted by Yang Muhai, the Chinese orchestra, one of the best of its kind in China, played both Chinese and Eastern melodies including Hope by Chinese composer Guan Xia and Pictures at an Exhibition, a suite of 10 pieces composed for the piano by Russian musician Modest Mussorgsky, which was later orchestrated by French composer Maurice Ravel in 1922.
