Mostly Debussy IV: In Black and White
posted by Cultural Management Office for HKU and Public
Event Type: Performance Arts (music, dance, drama etc.)
Event Nature: Culture and Arts
Find out how Debussy played taichi with the black and white keys on the piano in the most imaginative way. Lucas Wong, assistant professor of piano in Soochow University School of Music, narrates a lively lecture-recital based on the interesting stories behind the works of Debussy. While the programme begins with black keys evoking sounds of Pagodes and Asia, a gradual increase of the white key invasion throughout the recital inevitably creates fireworks and a montage experience onstage. Danse Sacrale (Sacrificial Dance) from Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring will be the culminating finale, presented with guest pianist Timothy Kwok.
