Programme Notes

Song of the Sea presents a series of sea pictures. The music begins with a quiet scene of the sea, and then it grows up into gigantic heavy seas. A twisting of mood follows, it becomes a lyrical barcarolle which is actually an ode to the sea. This piece is come from a musical theatre called The Eight Immortals’ Adventures, a production by the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra and the Hong Kong Repertory Theatre in December 2010. The wind band version was commissioned and premiered by the Hong Kong Festival Wind Orchestra, with sponsorship from CASH Music Fund.
