15 January: HKPhil Dim Sum Series: Baroque — Many Shapes, Many Lines, by Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra
Originally used to describe pearls in bizarre shapes, the French term “baroque” also describes the elaborately embellished visual art and music of 17th-century Europe. Paintings of the time are characterised by their opulence and dramatic contrast of light and dark, while the music is known for weaving multiple melodies into an intricate yet fluid whole.
To enhance your experience in visiting the masterpieces in the Liechtenstein Princely Collection, this ensemble of four cellos and a flute brings to you specially reworked baroque favourites from different countries. Join us and find out more about this unusual pearl of Western culture!
