Breaking from the conventions and restraints of concert hall performances, Hong Kong Sinfonietta collaborates with MOViE MOViE for the first time to bring the Special Extended Version of its “Back On Stage” live-recorded concert to the silver screen, marking a momentous occasion not to be missed by any music lovers.
The “Back On Stage” concert was recorded at Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall in June, when the venue was still closed to live audiences due to the ongoing pandemic. Led by Music Director Emeritus Yip Wing-sie and concertmaster James Cuddeford, the concert features four captivating works which represent the best of strings-only music. The Special Extended Version introduces a selection of precious behind-the-scene footage, providing a glimpse into the world of professional musicians away from the spotlight.
These special screenings will take place on 28 Jul (Tuesday) at MOViE MOViE Pacific Place, and 1 Aug (Saturday) at MOViE MOViE Cityplaza. Experience the orchestra’s passionate performance in all its authentic glory with the cinemas’ top-of-the-line audiovisual systems, and get to know the musicians in person through the meet-the-artists sessions accompanying both screenings!
