Synopsis:

Showcasing the versatility and elegance of the traditional Chinese plucked string instruments, ruan and zheng, this recital represents homegrown talents Yvonne Tay and Jonathan Rao's aspiration in musicianship. Aside from the newly arranged Impression of Guangling, which was derived from the classic guqin piece, Guangling Melody, the concert also features notable signature works, including renowned composer Prof Dong Li Qiang's Shu Ying and Robert Zollitsch's Boat Against the Current. The duo will also premiere a newly commissioned work by Ding Yi's composer-in-residence, Phang Kok Jun, as the finale.

There will be a post-show talk in English and Mandarin.

鼎艺团的两位青年演奏家郑怡雯和饶思铭首度合作,通过一系列优秀的作品来展现阮与筝的古朴与优雅。他们将演奏取材于古琴乐曲《广陵散》为中阮与古筝重新编配的《广陵印象》,著名作曲家董立强教授的《疏影》,以及德国作曲家老锣的《逆水行船》等。两人还将首演由鼎艺团驻团作曲家冯国峻为这场演出量身定做的新作品。

演后交流会将以中英文进行。
