Opening Concert of Prison Yard Festival “Music from within”

Setting the tone for the Prison Yard Festival, the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra traverses ancient and modern music through the evocative sound of Chinese stringed instruments. Over the course of this fascinating concert, some of Hong Kong’s finest instrumentalists draw the listener into the intimacy of their solo instruments before expanding to embrace the sweep of the larger ensemble, contrasting the poetic introspection of the soloist with the exuberant joy of the group, against the backdrop of Tai Kwun’s imposing Prison Wall.

Drawing on classics of Chinese traditional music and finding inspiration in nature and the moon, this concert gathers momentum as it heads towards its life-affirming climax when Hong Kong composer Ng Cheuk-yin’s Growth Ringcommemorates the steps engraved as we overcome every one of life’s challenges.
