Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra

Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra

How do you go about creating something totally new and unique? By taking two traditions and bringing them together, of course. By Western measure, the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra is a symphony outfit specialising in Chinese heritage instruments. These instruments have a highly distinctive sound; instead of the violin, the string section features its Chinese equivalent, the erhu, while plucked stringed instruments include the sitar-like zheng. The concert will feature contemporary Chinese music and the world premiere of Helsinki Festival and Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra’s joint commission from Jukka Tiensuu.
