Dame Evelyn Glennie returns! Evelyn Glennie’s performance with SCO caused immense sensation. This time she returns with the local premiere of Chinese-Canadian composer Vincent Ho’s The Shaman, a special composition for Evelyn Glennie, but in a Chinese orchestra version adapted by Malaysian composer Simon Kong Su Leong. The head of the Folk Music Department of China’s Central Conservatory of Music, Yu Hong Mei, will delicately illustrate the inner meanings of Chinese composer Liu Chang Yuan’s erhu concerto Dream Interpretation. Guanzi musician Han Lei will perform the world première of Liu Chang Yuan’s composition Bright Moon over the Ocean, and the orchestra will also play Liu’s major ensemble work Carnival Dance, which depicts the summoning of maritime sorcerers to the crazy dance of the moon. Connoisseurs will surely have their heartstrings strummed through the masteries of the East and West!
