Remark
Ensemble Concert
A Legacy of Exotic Lyricism is another signature programme of the HKCO that stands out with its artistic characteristic, which is the ‘traditional’ repertory of Chinese music accumulated over time. It covers not only the melodic aspect but also the musical instruments, performance techniques etc. The concert of this season will feature the Jiangnan sizhu (silk-and-bamboo) chamber ensemble of the south, and the wind-and-percussion ensemble of the north. The audience will experience the captivating charm of this type of traditional Chinese music with its distinctive southern and northern styles.
