Hong Kong Sinfonietta presents “Back On Stage” – Exclusive Première on ViuTV &
Special Extended Version at MOViE MOViE cinemas
Having closed for 5 months, Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall re-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 has made its Exclusive Première on ViuTVsix (Ch. 96) on 4 July (Sat) at 11:15pm, followed by a showing on ViuTV (Ch. 99) on 25 July (Sat) at 2:30pm. Starting from 28 July (Tue), music lovers will also have the opportunity to enjoy the Special Extended Version at the MOViE MOViE Pacific Place* and MOViE MOViE Cityplaza* cinemas; supported by the premium visual and sound systems installed, this promises to be an extraordinary 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).
*In view of the current situation of COVID-19 in Hong Kong, the screenings at MOViE MOViE Pacific Place and MOViE MOViE Cityplaza will be postponed. Please stay tuned for further updates on the orchestra’s website and Facebook page.
