EVENT DESCRIPTION

A concert with one of Hong Kong’s rising stars, brilliant erhu player Yang Enhua plays Chinese classics

Yang Enhua is a visually impaired erhu player, originally from Harbin in northern China, who has been living in Hong Kong since 2014.

Yang will play classics such as Reflection of the Moon on the Water and Song of a Promising Future in the concert. Especially featured are songs written by blind musicians, such as Hua Yanjun (A’Bing) and Sun Wen Ming, with a special focus on the music of northeastern China.

The accomplished and talented Yang plays different types of huqin, according to what best suits each work, and will be accompanied by a host of outstanding guest musicians, including Naamyam singer, Tong Siu-yin.

Losing his sight at a young age has not prevented Yang from pursuing his musical dreams. He started to learn the erhu at the age of 12, and since arriving in Hong Kong, Yang has worked with different orchestras and organisations such as the Asian Chamber Orchestra and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. Among the awards he has won is a gold medal in the erhu category at the 5th International Chinese Instrumental Competition.

He will be joined by the composer Mui Kwong-chiu, who has arranged the music for this exciting concert, and who has created Red Plum Blossom for its world premiere.

Don’t miss this opportunity to catch one of the rising stars of Chinese music in Hong Kong!
