Hong Kong Phil Presents YU LONG | FAURE REQUIEM Next Month

Performances are 4-5 November.

Hong Kong Phil Presents YU LONG | FAURE REQUIEM Next Month

Still waters run deep. Gabriel Fauré was a quiet man, and there's no anger or fury in his haunting Requiem - just some of the loveliest choral music ever written. But it can't conceal a world of heartfelt emotion. It'll make a perfect contrast to Berlioz's colourful and vivid Roman Carnival Overture, and Chen Qigang's modern masterpiece: a profoundly poetic meeting of Eastern and Western musical traditions.

The concert runs approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with an intermission.

Programme

BERLIOZ Roman Carnival Overture *

CHEN Qigang Un Temps Disparu

FAURÉ Requiem



Hong Kong Phil Presents Bachs ST MATTHEW PASSION This Weekend Photo
Filled with emotion, a survivor of great and terrible events tells his tale. As he sings of his friend's betrayal and killing, the ancient tragedy comes startlingly alive: a great chorus becomes an angry crowd, and even the listeners become part of the unfolding tragedy. This is Bach's St Matthew Passion, and it's simply overwhelming. Jaap van Zweden assembles a world-class team of soloists to perform a masterpiece that belongs to listeners of all faiths - and none.
