A Soldier’s Story 5.0 – The Devil Returns by Hong Kong Sinfonietta

A Dialogue between music, text and dance

Daniel Lo Ting-cheung Autumn Rhythm
Mozart Violin Concerto No. 5 in A, K. 219, “Turkish”
Stravinsky The Soldier’s Tale

Three music pieces will be presented at this concert. The first piece, Autumn Rhythm, is a new composition by Hong Kong award-winning young composer Daniel Lo, specially commissioned by Hong Kong Sinfonietta and inspired by Jackson Pollock’s art, lending a stirring energy to the concert. The concert also features the performance of Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 in A by Taiwanese violinist Tseng Yu-chien. Tseng garnered numerous awards at international violin competitions, including the Second Prize at the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition in 2015 at the age of 20 (First Prize not awarded that year). In 2005, Hong Kong Sinfonietta collaborated with ingenious Hong Kong choreographer Yuri Ng to premiere The Devil’s Tale which merged Stravinsky’s The Soldier’s Tale, dance and text to great popular acclaim. The production was then awarded the Hong Kong Dance Award in 2008. This year Hong Kong Sinfonietta will once again team up with Ng and a group of outstanding contemporary dancers from Asia, instilling new sparks into this production for the Taiwan audience.


“A stunning showcase of Yip Wing-sie and the Hong Kong Sinfonietta’s artistic vision, and their daring attempt at crossover production.”

──Yazhou Zhoukan

“Music Director Yip Wing-sie led a septet of Sinfonietta musicians…with all the buoyancy needed for the dancers.”
