Romanian Folk Dances
The Four Seasons: Summer
Holberg Suite, Op 40
Recorded Live at HK City Hall Concert Hall on 13.6.2020
“Back On Stage” has been recorded live in June during the Covid-19 period at the Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall whilst the venue was still closed, featuring the strings section of Hong Kong Sinfonietta, led by concertmaster James Cuddeford and conducted by Music Director Emeritus Yip Wing-sie. The concert is a special tribute to everyone in Hong Kong, spreading the healing and the love through music.
The concert presents four 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). The programme, chosen specially for its high spirits and energy, forms one hour of music with colourful juxtaposition – with introduction by Yip Wing-sie and James Cuddeford.
This special screening at MOViE MOViE is an extended version, which includes additional unseen behind-the-scene footage. A meet-the-artists session will accompany both screenings.
