William Lane/ Artistic Director, Hong Kong New Music Ensemble

Giorgio Biancorosso/ Professor (Music) & Director, Society of Fellows in the Humanities, The University of Hong Kong

Goethe-Institut Hongkong in partnership with Hong Kong New Music Ensemble and The University of Hong Kong to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth in 1770. Three concerts in October/ November.

The Hong Kong New Music Ensemble wishes to celebrate Beethoven in 2020 by exploring the dimensions of the miniature, the embryonic and the intangible: three short programs feature transcriptions, rarities by the great German master, and works that bear traces of his influence (ranging from Liszt to the The Beatles). The series culminates with the exploration of Beethoven’s compositional sketches and drafts treated as raw material for new music.

All concerts will be followed by an informal Q & A discussion with performers and curators.

In Dialogue with Beethoven 2020 concert no. 3: CROSSROADS

Contemporary interpretations of several of Beethoven's sketches and continuity drafts, including those from the Kafka Miscellany from the British Library (London).

Following the concert will be an informal Q & A discussion with performers and curators focusing on: the compositional process, embryonic sparks, the artistic value of sketches and drafts, traces of the creative process as if contemporary scores, and the history of the unfinished in art (from Michelangelo to Welles).
