The Intimacy of Creativity 2016 Five Year Retrospective Concert



The Intimacy of Creativity (IC) and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology present a five-season retrospective of dynamic and engaging chamber music compositions and chamber music making in this very special performance featuring principal members of The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, joined by previous and new IC guest artists. 

One emerging Composer Fellow from each previous season will have their works revisited in this special event, alongside the Asia premiere of the chamber ensemble version of Artistic Director and conductor, Bright Sheng’s Deep Red, featuring rising star marimba soloist, Pius Cheung. 

As with each season, IC reflects back on the work of standard repertoire composers.  The programme concludes with Mr. Sheng conducting the string orchestra version of Arnold Schoenberg’s heart-wrenching work, Verklarte Nacht (Transfigured Night), based on a poem by Richard Dehmel, of devotion, hope and redemption through love. This concert is not to be missed!
