Explore the unique charm of Hong Kong on a cinematic musical journey filled with intrigue! Eight musical sections developed through four facets of Hong Kong during the course of a virtual day: its cosmopolitan cityscape; fast-paced lifestyle; avenues for spiritual retreat; and colourful heritage and culture. Savour the changing sensibilities of the city in the ambience of video and instrumental music.
With new scores written collaboratively by Fung Lam, the youngest Chinese composer to be commissioned by the BBC, and Teriver Cheung, a stand-out guitarist on the international jazz scene, and performed by the fine jazz quartet alongside top chamber players from the Hong Kong Contemporary Music Group, the refreshing jazz-classical cross-over piece is accompanied by architect Anthony Lai’s original video images, the result is an amazing tapestry of original music and visuals weaving a lasting impression of Hong Kong.
Hong Kong Episodes premiered at the World Cultures Festival 2015 presented by LCSD of Hong Kong, and showcased at Hong Kong Music Series in London in 2017 presented by HKADC.
The programme is approximately 70 minutes without intermission,
suitable for aged 6 or above.
