Cinematic Musical Spectacle ‘Hong Kong Episodes’ Returns to Stage
Why We Recommend it
Outstanding local musicians pay tribute to Hong Kong’s cosmopolitan cityscape, fast-paced lifestyle, avenues for spiritual retreat, and colourful heritage and culture in a show filled with music and captivating visuals.
Comprising eight musical sections, Hong Kong Episodes is a showcase of the changing sensibilities of the city through video and instrumental music.
Making this innovative performance happen is a line-up of musical talents, including Fung Lam, the youngest Chinese composer to be commissioned by the BBC, Teriver Cheung, a stand-out guitarist on the international jazz scene, as well as the fine jazz quartet alongside top chamber players from the Hong Kong Contemporary Music Group. The jazz-classical cross-over piece will be accompanied by architect Anthony Lai’s original video images to weave together a dazzling tapestry of original music and visuals portraying the best of Hong Kong.
Hong Kong Episodes premiered at the World Cultures Festival 2015 presented by LCSD of Hong Kong, and was then showcased at Hong Kong Music Series in London in 2017 presented by HKADC.
