Ensemble Concert
This concert offers an idyllic soundscape created by the wind section of the Chinese orchestra. The dizi and the xiao are traditional wind instruments known for their soft, rounded tones that easily convey a tranquil ambiance. They can be used for solo, lead, ensemble, chamber and orchestral performances, as well as in accompaniment for folk songs, dances, Chinese traditional theatre, regional theatrical genres, and narrative singing. The HKCO's dizi/xiao section will perform a diverse range of works in different performing configurations and styles.
