Listen to the world premiere of the Beat of the Dragon Boat — a lively sextet for Western and Chinese instruments, with a story set to music that introduces Chinese festivals in an appealing and interesting way. Combining chamber music and bilingual narration (English and Cantonese), this world premiere concert that features a stellar cast of local musicians and local celebrity Gregory Rivers (河國榮) in a dramatic re-telling of the legend behind the Dragon Boat Festival and the Chinese poet Qu Yuan.

The composition is another collaboration between composer Alexis Alrich and author Christina Matula-Häkli, the pair who created the popular Shadow in the Moon, which told the story of the mid-Autumn Festival.

Prior to the concert, children are invited to participate in a art-and-craft workshop to make their own paper dragon boats for this special occasion.

 

《龍舟心曲》是一首活潑的六重奏樂曲,以中西方樂器一同演奏,以音樂故事的方式介紹中國重要節慶。表演糅合了室內音樂和雙語傳途(英文和廣東話),並由本地音樂家和影視紅星河國榮攜手演繹端午節和中國詩人屈原的傳奇故事。

《龍舟心曲》是作曲家Alexis Alrich和作家Christina Matula-Häkli繼《月亮裡的影子》後再一次的共同創作。在音樂會之前,小朋友可參與紙龍船工作坊,讓小朋友在這個特別的節日裏製作出自己的紙龍舟。
