The Enchanting Flute: Jasmine Choi and Macao Orchestra
Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978) : Violin Concerto in D minor (Transcribed for Flute and Orchestra)
Nikolai Rimski-Korsakov (1844-1908) : Scheherazade, Op. 35
Acclaimed as one of the 10 best flutists in the history of music’ (Sinfini Music, UK) and noted for her delicate, clear tone, superb virtuosity and extraordinary charisma, Korean goddess of flute Jasmine Choi will cooperate with the Macao Orchestra for the very first time. She was the first Korean musician to hold a position in the Vienna Symphony Orchestra before embarking on her career as a full-time soloist.
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov turned the fantasy stories of One Thousand and One Nights (also called The Arabian Nights), into Scheherazade, a symphonic poem. The work, with extremely magnificent and passionate sections one after another, perfectly displays the dynamic, colourful variations and timbres of the symphonic orchestra. Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto in D minor published in 1940, has attracted countless audiences with its captivating melodies and mysterious Oriental flavour.
