  3. Tunes from the East II 《管弦齊歡東韵西樂 2》 with The klpac Orchestra


When Tunes from the East debuted in 2019, its East meets West presentation was like a breath of fresh air that captivated both lovers of traditional Chinese music and those new to it. The klpac Orchestra’s second edition, led by Maestro Lee Kok Leong, brings you an all-new line up of soloists and all-new programme.  

Its second edition features a composer who made a name for himself blending Eastern and Western music Ma Shui-long and his best known work Concerto for Bang Di (Bamboo Flute) as well as distinguished Chinese composer Liu Wenjin’s Concerto No. 1 for Erhu. It also premieres a new arrangement of Cheng Kuang-Chih’s Concerto No. 1 for Keyed Sheng “Phoenix from the Ashes”, originally written for a Chinese orchestra. 

Representing the Malaysian contingent are Yeo Chow Shern’s much-loved “Perayaan” and world premiere of “Tarian Overture”, Wong Chee Wei’s Happy World and ZhiYing Tan’s “DOTS”, RondoFest 2023 commissioned work. 

Programme aside, the highlight of this new edition is some of Malaysia’s most exciting Chinese instrumentalists Ewe Chee Hean on Dizi, Cheang Ming Chun on Erhu, Leong Ching Chiang on Sheng, Tan Yong Yaw on Yangqin as well as acclaimed soprano Evelyn Toh.
