Choral music has long been considered as a foreign artefact that came to Asia over a century ago. After years of experimentation and assimilation, composers have developed unique solutions to the tension between the vernacular language and the western functional harmony.

In celebration of its 15th anniversary, Hong Kong Voices presents the second concert of Contemporary Choral Music series, bringing forth works by four Asian composers. Inspirations are drawn from various Chinese and Western literature—Daodejing, Song Dynasty lyric poems ci, mystic medieval poetry, modern classics by Robert Frost and H. C. Andersen—, as well as Chinese and Japanese folk tunes. Come join us for a soirée of poetry and contemporary music!

自西方的合唱音樂於上世紀被帶到亞洲,作曲家多年來都在探索如何融合本土的音樂語言與西方的功能性和聲。香港和聲十五周年,為你再次帶來「當代合唱音樂沙龍」音樂會,演唱四位亞裔作曲家的曲目,包括本港著名作曲家曾葉發、旅美華人作曲家陳怡、擅長創作合唱作品的日本作曲家松下耕,以及新晉美籍華裔作曲家林子鈞。他們的作品包羅了中西文學—《道德經》、宋詞、中日民歌、歐洲中世紀詩詞,以至佛洛斯特和安徒生的經典現代詩作,萬勿錯過!
