Format: COMPACT DISC
Hong Kong New Music Ensemble; Havel, Daniel; Soucek, Jan
“I hear the embodiment of the wanderer resounding in my musical language. Each ‘end’ of a piece only brings forth the beginning of a new one”, says Sri Lankan-Australian composer Nirmali Fenn. The Hong Kong New Music Ensemble dedicates its first KAIROS release to Fenn’s small-scale chamber music: solos, duos and trios. This is an intimate journey to the composer’s soul. Founded in 2008, the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble is hailed as “one of Hong Kong’s most progressive groups of musicians” (CNN). Widely praised for its innovative programming, the Ensemble’s productions include concerts, education outreach events, and interdisciplinary collaborations and research projects with artists from different artistic fields. The HKNME currently consists of twelve core members and several ensemble associates who perform in versatile combinations in a variety of settings.
