A Lunar New Year Celebration

A Lunar New Year Celebration

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra welcomes the Year of the Boar with orchestral fireworks.

The Spring Festival Overture captures the festival excitement of the Lunar New Year. It’s so popular that it was broadcast into space on China’s first lunar probe. It ushers in an East meets West musical celebration with dances from the heart of China and thrilling moments from opera by Borodin and Tchaikovsky. And the Jin Wu Koon Lion Dance Troupe ensure the year gets off to an auspicious start.

Qigang’s exquisite Iris Unveiled brings shimmering Chinese colours, instruments and voices to the orchestra. The striking, sensuous sound of Peking Opera Singer Meng Meng with erhu (fiddle), pipa (lute) and zheng (zither) contributes to a dreamlike atmosphere, with music that is by turns refined, abandoned and seductive.

Directing the celebrations is ‘impeccable and virtuoso’ young conductor Elim Chan. She’s one of Hong Kong’s brightest musical stars.

 

欢庆农历新年音乐会

《春节序曲》(The Spring Festival Overture)完美体现了农历新年激动人心的节日气氛。这个家喻户晓的喜庆乐曲,曾搭载中国首次月球探测之旅唱响太空。今天,它又与中国的传统舞蹈和鲍罗丁(Borodin)及柴可夫斯基(Tchaikovsky)的歌剧交相辉映,带我们步入一场东西方音乐盛典,为观众留下难忘的乐章。同时,澳洲振武馆龙狮团(Jin Wu Koon Lion Dance Troupe)也将为我们开启吉祥的新的一年。

法籍华裔作曲家陈其钢(Qigang)先生优美的《蝶恋花》(Iris Unveiled)为管弦乐队的演奏增添了引人注目的中国色彩,中西方的乐器和曲调得以完美融合。京剧演员孟萌激动人心的唱腔,与二胡(小提琴)、琵琶(琉特琴)和筝(古筝)等乐器的伴奏,伴随其优雅、恣意又不失性感的音乐,营造出梦一般的氛围。

这次盛会的导演是“无可挑剔的巨星”——年轻的指挥陈以琳(Elim Chan)。她是香港最耀眼的音乐明星之一。
