The organizers of the Macao International Music Festival (MIMF) will stage three special concerts in October – “A Century of Chinese Music”, “Mahler Symphony No. 1” and “Bravo Macao!” – as part of the new lineup adjusted because of the pandemic situation.
On October 4, “A Century of Chinese Music” will feature two acclaimed plucked-string virtuosos, the prominent master of pipa, Zhang Hongyan, and accomplished contemporary guzheng soloist, Luo Jing, who will perform the pieces “Blossoms on a Moonlit River in Spring” and “Song of the Homebound Fishermen”, respectively.
In the concert “Mahler Symphony No. 1” to be held on October 10, the Macao Orchestra and the Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra will present Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 to promote artistic exchanges in the Greater Bay Area, while young violinist Huali Dang will perform Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5.
The concert “Bravo Macao!”, which offers a platform for young local musicians to showcase their talents, will be staged at the Dom Pedro V Theatre on October 31, featuring percussionist Andrew Chan and saxophonist Lee Chi Pok.
According to a statement issued by the Cultural Affairs Bureau (IC), the MIMF program has been designed this year “to inspire people with music during the epidemic.”
Tickets went on sale at the Macau Ticketing Network starting yesterday, with early bird and various discounts available. DB
