Macao Orchestra to premiere young composer’s work

    UNDER the baton of its artistic director Lu Jia, Macao Orchestra will premiere this Sunday night a symphony composed by 28-year-old Zheng Yang for local audiences. The piece, written for percussion and orchestra, was commissioned for the Shenzhen Belt and Road International Music Season.

    Titled “Faraway Mast,” the three-movement work, lasting some 13 minutes, depicts an epic journey at sea taken by the Chinese people. Rather than a specific adventure recorded in history, the subject being dealt with is a metaphor for the fate of the Chinese people, who have had years of ancient glory, struggles under the invasions of other nations and confusion about their future, and is now emerging as a powerful nation again hoping the best for tomorrow. Focusing heavily on percussion that includes snare drums, bass drums, celesta and vibraphone, the piece adopts the adagio-allegro-adagio structure.

    Sunday’s program will also include the “Piano Concerto in A Minor, Op. 16” composed by Norwegian composer and pianist Edvard Grieg, Hungarian musician Zoltan Kodaly’s “Galanta Dance,” and Czech composer Dvorak’s “Symphony No. 8.”

    The only concerto Grieg completed, his piano concerto is one of his most popular works and among the most popular of all piano concerti. Performing the piano solo will be 22-year-old Wan Jieni, who studies with Professor Antti Siirala at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich. Wan was the first prize winner at the Jugend Musiziert (Germany’s most prestigious young music competition) in June 2011.

    Founded in 1983, Macao Orchestra is staffed by talented youth musicians from over 10 countries and regions. It stages over 70 concerts every music season, with a rich repertoire of classic music from all times and all countries.

    Time: 8 p.m., April 2 Tickets: 80-880 yuan

    Venue: Shenzhen Concert Hall, intersection of Hongli Road and Yitian Road, Futian District (福田区红荔路和益田路交汇处深圳音乐厅)

    Metro: Line 3 or 4, Children’s Palace Station (少年宫站), Exit D
