“Fire Ritual” Comp. Doming Lam
“Symphony No. 2 for Chinese Orchestra” Comp. Liu Xing
“Jing‧Qi‧Shen” Comp. Chan Ming-chi
Concerto de Huqin “Ritual de Fogo” Comp. Tan Dun


True creativity never dwindles. Chew Hee Chiat, the Principal Guest Conductor and Artistic Advisor of OCHM, will lead the orchestra in four New School pieces from 1970s to 2000s, whose pioneering ideas are still relevant. Doming Lam’s Autumn Execution, a reinterpretation of The Injustice to Dou E, combines Chinese opera singing with instrumental music, with the scene of snowfall in midsummer still amazing audiences. Liu Xing’s Symphony No. 2 for Chinese Orchestra is boldly orchestrated, exploring new combinations in Chinese music and its integration with jazz. Chan Ming-chi’s Jing‧Qi‧Shen uses modern compositional techniques to interpret Chinese philosophy, producing unique sound imagery. Tan Dun’s huqin concerto Fire Ritual is full of unusual techniques and even yelling, requiring the soloist’s mastery of three types of huqins: Gaohu, Erhu and Zhonghu. This time, the public can enjoy the virtuosity of Huqin master Zhang Chongxue, Head of Chinese Music Department, at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA).
