The multifaceted and multi-award winner Tan Dun has made an indelible mark on the world music scene with a creative repertoire that spans the boundaries of classical music. The Symphonic Poem on Three Notes describes an evolutionary arc from nature through industry and back to nature, the traditional orchestra augmented with a range of unorthodox sound sources such as wind, stones and car brake drums. The drama of Orchestral Theatre centres on memories of ritual from the composer’s childhood, linking folk music styles to Western atonality, while the Concerto for Orchestra describes the exoticism of Marco Polo’s geographical, musical and spiritual journeys.

“what makes this all so absorbing is the way in which Tan Dun uses a plethora of percussive and other effects...to propel [Poem on Three Notes] forward. Clearly the members of the Hong Kong Philharmonic are having a ball and the effect is often thrilling...[the Concerto for Orchestra] gives us a chance to experience the splendid Hong Kong Philharmonic at its most assured...This is a vivid demonstration of true orchestral virtuosity.”
