Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (30 AUG 2023)
The National Day Concert features the Hong Kong premiere of Chinese composer Zhao Lin’s A Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains. This symphonic poem was inspired by the only surviving work of the same title by the Northern Song Dynasty painter Wang Ximeng. Lin’s composition weaves folk soprano with the Chinese instruments sheng, pipa, erhu and dizi into the Western orchestral fabric to produce a unique soundscape. Yu Long conducts this co-commission by the League of China Orchestras and 23 orchestras, including the HK Phil.
The concert runs approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes without intermission.
