SCO, as an arts ambassador of Singapore, will bring to the Hong Kong audiences the best essences of their culture through the rich taste of Nanyang flavour. This concert promises to illustrate the beauty of Nanyang music and showcase its most glorious works. This concert starts with a roaring Guangdong piece Thunder Storm and Drought. Concertmaster Li Bao Shun will perform Tan Dun’s huqin masterpiece Fire Ritual. Two concise and witty orchestral works –Mahjong Kakis and Izpirazione II – Rambutan – composed respectively by Eric Watson and Simon Kong Su Leong will also be featured. The finale is a selection from symphonic poem, Marco Polo and Princess Blue, by composer Liu Yuan and lyricist Wang Yi Yan, which will feature established tenor Warren Mok and well-acclaimed Chinese soprano Wu Bi Xia.
