A new programming initiative from The Macao Orchestra, highlighting works of 20th-century and contemporary classical music, debuts this Saturday, January 15th, at 8pm in the Dom Pedro V Theatre with a concert titled ‘Adventurous and Experimental’. Featured on the concert programme is variety of music selected for its ability to inspire the public in attendance with the creative spirit of the present era and recent musical past. Tickets are now available at Kong Seng Ticketing Network outlets.

The broad spectrum of contemporary music is marked by an unprecedented stylistic diversity, and musicians from The Macao Orchestra are extending their ample talents beyond the confines of the traditional classical music repertoire to present the audience with a series of astonishing masterpieces. Among these representative works of 20th-century chamber music are the String Trio, op. 20 by Anton Webern, the String Quartet No.7 in E-flat major by Paul Hindemith and Toccata by Anders Koppel. From neo-classical works to gems of the Second Viennese School to the contemporary avant-garde, this is an opportunity to hear outstanding music rarely-performed in Macao.

Music fans are encouraged to experience the innovation of these forward-thinking composers through the uniqueness of each page of music, as it comes to life in the hands of these gifted Macao Orchestra musicians.

Tickets for ‘Adventurous and Experimental’ are now available at Kong Seng Ticketing Network outlets.
