Concerto for OrchestraPerformed by Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra
Conducted by Tan Dun
The new works are exciting, for they show Tan elaborating on the accessible style of the soundtrack that helped make Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon a global hit. The basic elements of his style — detailed orchestral work, use of musical elements drawn from the natural and ritual life of rural China, programmatic content, and rigorous modernist structural principles are all still present, but they are merged and treated in new ways.
