Muted Situation #22: Muted Tchaikovsky’s 5th

Director Samson Young (HKS Artist Associate 2008-2009)
Cast Thomas Jung, Flora Sinfonie Orchester

How does our brain “listen” to what is “seen”? And how well do you know Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony?

Muted Situation is a series of propositions, which the artist started in 2014. Muted Situation #22 is the last work of this series. The experience of watching (and listening to) a “muted performance” of “the symphony” in its entirety somehow unsettles our expectation, and raises questions about perception and its boundaries. Having won multiple international awards and the inaugural Sigg Prize in 2020, Muted Situation #22 makes its début as a film on the big screen at the special screening at Life is Art Festival 2021.

Samson Young will introduce the screening and also discuss the ideas and concepts behind his work with the audience.

This work was commissioned by the 21st Biennale of Sydney, with additional support from the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (vA) and the Art Promotion Office (APO).

The APPRECIATE concerts are, mainly, classical concerts featuring guest artists and conductors of world renown.  Apart from performing orchestral masterpieces, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly commissions new works and introduces to audiences works that are rarely heard in Hong Kong.

Music is good for everyone! The LEARN series takes audiences aged 0 to 88 into the world of classical music through specially designed concert series including Good Music for Babies, Good Music for Kids, Short-cut to Classical Music, Know Your Classical Music and HKS McDull Music Project.

In the light-hearted RELAX concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta shares with audiences great music ranging from orchestral favourites to music from movies and musicals.

The ENCOUNTER series offers unique opportunities for audiences to get close to the music and the performers through chamber music concerts, talks, often at unconventional venues or time. These include Good Music This Lunch, Good Music @ The Fringe, Beyond Good Music @ The Fringe, HKS ArtisTree Residency and UpClose Encounters.

Often referred to as “one of the world’s great small orchestras”, Hong Kong Sinfonietta has been invited to go on many TOURS in Europe, Asia, South and North Americas, sharing good music with audiences in over 30 cities.  In 2017/2018, the orchestra will make its début in Germany and perform at festivals in France, Portugal, as well as the Beethoven Easter Festival in Poland.

WHAT ELSE?  Apart from classical concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly appears in staged productions by Hong Kong Ballet, Opera Hong Kong and visiting arts groups such as The Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Bolshoi Ballet and Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. This season, Hong Kong Sinfonietta will also host the 1st International Conducting Competition.
