Music Review: National Day Celebration

Date: 27 September 2014
Performers: Warren Lee (pianist), Huang Ying (soprano), Ken Lam (conductor), HK Philharmonic
Rating: **** (4 out of 5)

Every autumn, the HK Philharmonic puts together a programme of Chinese music to celebrate the National Day of the People’s Republic. It invariably includes one of the two popular Chinese concertos: Butterfly Lovers for the violin and Yellow River for the piano. This year was no exception, and the programme comprised the Yellow River concerto, an overture by composer Shi Wanchun and a number of folk songs and opera arias. Carrying the baton was Ken Lam, a former corporate lawyer who found his true calling in classical music and has gone on become one of the most respected conductors in Hong Kong and beyond.
