Work

Dream of the Red Chamber Suite
Echoes of Dunhuang

Dream of the Red Chamber Suite
Inspired by Liping Wang’s original score based on one of China’s greatest literature work Dream of the Red Chamber, Artistic Director Trey Lee collaborated with composer Chao-ming Tung to create a version for cello and Chinese orchestra, and was world-premiered with the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra in 2012 and subsequently performed by Taiwan’s National Chinese Orchestra in 2013.

Echoes of Dunhuang
Bright Sheng created The Blazing Mirage, inspired by the aesthetic and historical elements that make Dunhuang a defining symbol of China’s rich and varied cultural past. This work was world-premiered by Trey Lee and the Munich Chamber Orchestra at the 2012 Hong Kong New Vision Arts Festival. Also performed in Banff, Beijing and Shanghai, The Blazing Mirage was recorded with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra
