Eternal Wings – Hong Kong Cultural Centre 30th Anniversary Concert
29 November, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 30 November, 2019 @ 10:00 pm
This concert to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the opening of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre is one full of dates and a sense of history. The Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra re-enacts the programme of its historic concert for the official opening of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre in November 1989 thirty years ago. Of the six pieces in this commemorative concert, three were born more or less in the same year as the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. All six works share a common trait. Every time they are performed, leaving their footprints in the trajectory of time, the energy in the music can easily move audiences.
The young pianist Chen Sa, hailed as one of the leading figures of the “Chinese Piano Age”, will be performing the Yellow River Piano Concerto. Second Symphony, commissioned for the opening of the Cultural Centre, will be performed by celebrated concert organist, Shen Yuen. Premier drummer in Chinese percussion music, Yim Hok Man, will perform the Chiuchow Gongs-and-drums piece, Netting Fish.
