On Tour - Trey Lee in Hong Kong

20:00 JC Cube, Tai Kwun

English composers Gustav Holst and Benjamin Britten promoted their predecessors’ music and rejuvenated lesser-known techniques and folksong forms. As highlight pieces, concertos by C.P.E. Bach and J.S. Bach will feature as soloist Musicus Artistic Director and cellist Trey Lee, with whom the ECO collaborated on his forthcoming new album Seasons Interrupted, and rising star violinist Aaron Chan.

For The Art of Rejuvenation, Musicus has invited Hong Kong new media artist Phoebe Hui to create a new artwork. She has upcycled stepper motors from everyday devices, and transformed musical inputs into visual representations that celebrate the intersection of the old and the new.

Join us for an impressive program that brings together music that has stood the test of time and innovative art.
