About Programme


Since 1987, the Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra has been toured annually in major cities of China and has accepted invitations to perform in Europe. Concerts in the Berlin Philharmonie of Germany and the Smetana Hall of Prague in Czech Republic have earned strong acclaims from music critics, media and the audience. This year, the Orchestra will come to Hong Kong with loaded honours, bringing to Hong Kong's audience the choral symphony Ode to Humanism and Tan Dun's violin concerto The Love.


There are a total of 3 chapters in Tan Dun's violin concerto The Love portraying his sensations of love: young love, mature love, and spiritual love. With Tan's works the favoured choice of the world famous violinist, Jue Yao, the performance will definitely bring unparalleled sensational pleasure to Hong Kong audience.


The Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra will jointly present the famous Ode to Humanism with the Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra and the Hong Kong Children's Choir. This is a piece of music written by Wang Ning, the reputable composer and Professor of the China Conservatory of Music. The Ode to Humanism transforms the Confucian core values of Benevolence, Righteousness, Etiquette, Wisdom and Integrity into musical pieces, furnishing with a prelude and a coda for a coherent symphony. Embedded with it the momentum of the Five Virtues, the Ode to Humanism's echoing on the five natural elements (earth, fire, wood, water, metal) will provide the audience with a valuable glimpse into the humanistic spirit and attitude towards life of the Chinese nation.


*Approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
