    Everlasting Cantonese Music

    最新

    LATEST
    26/09/2022

    In this episode, we will appreciate 3 pieces of Cantonese music with our audience: “Autumn Thoughts in a Moonlit Night”, “The Lotus Floats the Boats” and “Those Gilded Days of Yore”.
    The key mode of “Autumn Thoughts in a Moonlit Night” is “yifan”. It is skilfully arranged by the composer TSE Chun-yan to demonstrate an unconventional “yifan” mode with different perspectives and forms.
    Clarence MAK’s work “The Lotus Floats the Boats” is inspired by WANG Wei’s scenic poem “Autumn Evening Retreating in the Mountains”: “through the bamboos hear laughter of maidens returning from the laundering, lotus sways by the fishing boats.” He hopes that no matter how busy people are, they can still appreciate the beautiful things around them, just like watching lotus leaves floating in the water.
    As its name suggests, “Those Gilded Days of Yore” composed by CHEN Ning-chi walks with you a journey of life. It starts with free rhythm, follows by slow rhythm, moderate rhythm next, then fast rhythm, and finally liushui rhythm, rendering a piece that worth your savouring.

    In this episode, we will appreciate 3 pieces of Cantonese music with our audience: “Dai-Lok-Tin (Heavenly Bliss)”, “Soar Against the Wind” and “Hoisting the Sails”.
    Composer Richard TSANG embodies the spirit of Cantonese music in the delightful and positive “Dai-Lok-Tin (Heavenly Bliss)”.
    In “Soar Against the Wind”, composer HUI Cheung-wai employs those especially ascending figures to express the image of increasing power and all the way up, just like a bird soaring against the wind.
    Joshua CHAN’s creation of “Hoisting the Sails” starts with monophonic Cantonese music. He applies techniques such as “adding flowers” (increasing ornamentation on the skeletal melody) and “subtracting flowers” (ornamenting the skeletal melody in a reduced manner) with individual instruments for a sunny and bright impression, which symbolises embarking on a new journey.

    • Episode 1 “Moon Night” “Lan Kwai Tang Fong”  “Speeding across the Sky”

      Episode 1 “Moon Night” “Lan Kwai Tang Fong” “Speeding across the Sky”

      In this episode, we will appreciate 3 pieces of Cantonese music with our audience: “Moon Night”, “Lan Kwai Tang Fong” and “Speeding across the Sky”.
      What inspires NG King-pan to create “Moon Night” is a line from the famous Cantonese opera “The Legend of the Purple Hairpin”: “hugging the weeping lady on a fog moon night”. The traditional version of “Moonlight over Spring River” is usually led by xiao and pipa, while “Fog Moon Night” is led by xiao and houguan for a better showcase of the characteristics of Cantonese music.
      “Lan Kwai Tang Fong” is a lively piece. The composer LUK Wai-chun not only spices it up with dance, but also includes in it an impromptu in order to make this work more refreshing.
      Composer Joshua CHAN tries to introduce figures that are never found in Cantonese music into his works. The sudden transposition is a stroke of genius that makes listeners feel like “Speeding across the Sky”.

      Programme:
      NG King-pan “Moon Night” (2020) [Ensemble] (Commissioned Work)
