Children of the Yellow River, keep rolling on!

Mr Chen Tscehng-Hsiung is a conductor of great renown in Taiwan, recognized for his adept command of Chinese and Western music. He will lead the HKCO in this concert with a programme that showcases his repertoire. It includes Shokstakovich's Festive Overture; Three Realms of Tibet by Han Yong, composer from China now residing in the United States, which is an exploration of the meaning of Life written with a unique 'Yin Yang Composition Method' that he created and Recollections by Liu Changyuan, an expansive work of universality. Also appearing in the concert is young konghou player, Wu Lin, performing Chen Ning-chi's work that shows the timelessness of the millennia-old instrument, The Phoenix that Rises from the Ashes, and famous pianist Shi Shucheng in an emotively overwhelming rendition of The Yellow River piano concerto.
