From Constraint to Creativity: a Cantonese Choral Showcase
Partnering with The Hong Kong Children’s Choir, Hong Kong Youth Choir, and Die Konzertisten, the CUHK presents an all-Cantonese choral concert featuring music by local composers and works collected from the international call-for-scores. Drawing its texts from ancient and contemporary poems as well as original lyrics, the works will demonstrate how text-setting constraints in Cantonese can be transformed into a creative resource, illustrating how composers can work with - instead of against -the linguistic constraints to create choral music that encompasses a wide array of styles.
