Beare’s Premiere Music Festival: Martial Arts and Classical Music
Why We Recommend it
This year’s Beare’s Premiere Music Festival by the Premiere Performances of Hong Kong puts on three world-class diverse concerts that features both epic film, chamber and classical music.
Three concerts at Tai Kwun’s JC Cube feature renowned musicians and, in some cases, scores by award-winning composers. When Breath Becomes Sound focuses on the virtuosity of musicians who use their breath as the force to create music – voice, woodwind and brass, with gorgeous works by Poulenc, Schumann and Brahms.
In The Martial Arts Trilogy, Academy Award winner Tan Dun’s epic film music will be performed alongside projections of some of cinematic moments that his music scored. The concert includes music and film excerpts from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hero and The Banquet arranged for piano, violin and cello.
The last concert, Sunday Afternoon Chamber Music, showcases Bach’s Goldberg Variations, reimagined for a string quartet, together with works by Mozart, Saint-Saens and Bright Sheng’s Hot Pepper for violin and marimba to add some spice to the Sunday afternoon.
Please note that The Martial Arts Trilogy will start at 7:30pm (originally scheduled for 8pm).
