landing on the silver screen at MOViE MOViE!
Despite its spells of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall opened its doors for Hong Kong Sinfonietta’s ground-breaking project, “Back On Stage” – a musical tribute of joy, love and healing to the people of Hong Kong. This live-recorded concert made its Exclusive Première on ViuTV in July, and is currently available for watching on-demand at several streaming platforms including ViuTV, myTV SUPER and TVB Anywhere. A Special Extended Version of the concert is also landing on the silver screen in a ground-breaking collaboration with the MOViE MOViE Pacific Place and Cityplaza cinemas*, providing an immersive concert experience like no other.
Led by Music Director Emeritus Yip Wing-sie and concertmaster James Cuddeford, “Back On Stage” features four uplifting works which represent the best of strings-only music spanning four centuries: from the eccentrically genius work by 17th-century Austrian composer Biber (Battalia), to one of the most known works in the Baroque repertoire (Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons: Summer), and two dance suites – one in neo-classical style by Norwegian composer Grieg (Holberg Suite), and the other from the Hungarian giant Bartók, depicting seven folk tunes from Romania (Romanian Folk Dances).
