The HK Phil Gives A Mysterious Orchestral Tour With THE COMPOSER IS DEAD
HK Phil needs your help in the concert hall to find who killed the composer! The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) is going to reveal the mysterious world of the orchestra by dissecting the instruments and sections with Nathaniel Stookey's entertaining whodunit The Composer is Dead and also soundtracks from the best-loved BBC TV drama series and movies of legendary detective Sherlock Holmes on 21 & 22 September 2018 in the Tsuen Wan Town Hall Auditorium.
"Inspector" Eric Monson will lead the interrogation of the wily strings, the devious clarinets and other suspects on stage, even conductor Christian Reif, to find the clues and untangle the truth together with you all! The Composer is Dead is a modern-day Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra in a murder-mystery setting. While you are investigating, Eric is going to interview each section of the orchestra. They will profess their innocence and so to solve the mystery, he will revisit the cases of many other dead composers including Beethoven, Schubert, Berlioz, Wagner, Mahler and Tchaikovsky.
The evening will feature other detective-themed music, such as the Pink Panther, a wonderfully laid-back, soft-jazz theme; and various Sherlock Holmes soundtracks, building a scene of the darker side of criminal life in Victorian London. No matter Sherlock Holmes or Canon Doyle fanatics, don't miss the perfect chance to enjoy a platter of music from world-famous BBC TV drama series and movies of "adventurer" Sherlock Holmes.
So, dear all potential inspectors, get your astute and witty minds ready, we are not leaving the auditorium until the crime is solved!
