Ensemble Concert
Tickets are available from 18/3/2024 at URBTIX
Mao Qinghua, Huqin Co-Principal and Zhonghu Principal, and Zhang Ying, Pipa Principal of the HKCO, may play instruments that are distinctly different in sound and performance style, but the two ladies share the same sweetness and gentleness in their intricate musical expressions that show their capacity to delineate the imagery within the music through nuanced sounds. The programme of this concert is presented in various Chinese chamber ensemble formats (or the ‘silk-and-bamboo’ form), with all the unique charm of the repertory complete with interpretations that bring out the scenic, philosophical and emotive elements of the genre.
