A combination of contemporary jazz and Chinese music in this innovative concert inspired by the majesty of nature.

The acclaimed Wuji Ensemble is once again inviting audiences to an innovative sonic odyssey, complete with set, lighting and video projection design. Combining Chinese and western instruments, the concert takes its inspiration from nature, creating an undulating soundscape that unscrolls like a Chinese landscape painting before one’s eyes. Just as steep mountains and rocky peaks are formidable in their own right and yet connected at their base, so too are the two genres of music as they contrast and complement each other throughout the performance.

Setting the tone for the concert with a mesmerizing introduction, the concert eventually begins with a new piece by Lui Ngao-yuen, jazz musician, composer and band leader of this performance, followed by two commissioned pieces respectively by composer Cynthia Wong, renowned for her perfect fusion of western and eastern music, and Wuji artistic director Law Wing-fai, who pushes the performance to a thrilling climax, bringing the concert to a rhapsodic close.
