This is the first ever Asian tour for Gabriel Prokofiev (UK) to bring along his original work and ensemble with the young chamber orchestra The Timecrafters (HK) for performances in town, the Asia Society Hong Kong Center, and in suburb, Sha Tau Kok San Tsuen (Nov 3), in Hong Kong. Gabriel and The Timecrafters will perform a selection of classics and of recent electronic compositions by G. Prokofiev. It will create a dialogue between classical and contemporary music.
Gabriel Prokofiev is a London-based composer, producer, DJ. Composing music that both embraces and challenges western classical traditions, Gabriel has emerged at the forefront of a new approach to classical music in the UK at the beginning of the 21st century. As a grandson of renowned Classical composer Sergei Prokofiev, Gabriel is nevertheless unbound by the limit of music genre and experiments the possibilities of Classical music with notable attempts of DJ–Classical mixture. His Concerto for Turntables was performed at the BBC Proms in August 2011 to critical acclaim and it has since been performed by Seattle Symphony and Copenhagen Philharmonic.
The Timecrafters aims to nurture classical music appreciation and rejuvenate classical chamber music performances. They focus on giving themed chamber concerts, and often they collaborate with some of the most enthusiastic young musicians in town. Through light-hearted explanations and quality performances, members are proud to provide an intimate, informative and cozy chamber music experience to the audience. The Timecrafters Quartet has recently awarded full scholarship to attend the first Taipei Music Academy & Festival in 2019.
