Romanian Folk Dances
The Four Seasons: Summer
Holberg Suite, Op 40
The first Back On Stage was recorded live in June 2020 during the closure of Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall due to COVID. It features the strings section of Hong Kong Sinfonietta, led by Concertmaster James Cuddeford and conducted by Music Director Emeritus Yip Wing-sie. The film was made as a special tribute to Hong Kong, to spread a message of healing and love through music.
The concert presents four works that represent the best of strings-only music from four centuries. It includes the rarely performed genius work Battalia by 17th-century Austrian composer Biber and Summer from Vivaldi’s all-time favourite, The Four Seasons. The programme, chosen for its high spirits and energy, delivers one hour of music with colourful juxtapositions, an introduction by Yip Wing-sie and James Cuddeford, and additional behind-the-scene footages.
