Tea House Chamber Music Series: Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra

Hans Christian Andersen's The Nightingale is a tale of East and West, of nature and technology, and of the life-giving power of the art that we call music. In this magical chamber concert, players from the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra summon up nature visions from Tan Dun and Takemitsu, and weave an extraordinary audio-visual puzzle by OZNO – plus a rare performance of The Nightingale, as retold in words and music by the Dutch jazz legend and sonic innovator Theo Loevendie.
