About the performance

Visionary composer and conductor, Tan Dun returns to Melbourne to celebrate the Year of the Pig. An annual highlight of the city’s Chinese New Year celebrations since 2014, this year Tan Dun has curated a thrilling and, personal program.

Tan Dun’s Double Bass Concerto The Wolf was commissioned by Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, St. Louis Symphony, Taiwan Philharmonic (NSO), and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. Inspired by the Chinese novel “Wolf Totem” by Jiang Rong, the piece reflects Tan Dun’s personal connection and fascination with the spirits of the natural world and the sounds and customs of the ancient cultures along the Silk Road. The symbol of the Mongolian wolf and its life in the grasslands for Tan Dun is a mirror of the human spirit and our relationship to the natural world.

Joining the maestro and the MSO is Hanggai, a troupe of traditional-meets-rock musicians from the steppes of Inner Mongolia via Beijing. Combining traditional instruments like the morin khuur (horsehair fiddle) and tobshuur (two-stringed lute) with a hearty serving of rock bravado, their performance with the MSO will be unlike anything else you’ll see all year.

演出简介

杰出作曲家、指挥家谭盾将再次回到墨尔本,庆祝农历猪年。自2014年起,中国新年音乐会一直是墨尔本春节庆典活动的主要节目。今年,谭盾亲自操刀,策划出了一场引人入胜的精彩演出。

此次和谭盾一起登台演出的还有杭盖乐队。杭盖乐队是由一群来自内蒙古大草原的乐手组成的民族摇滚乐队。乐队组建于北京。他们使用传统民族乐器,例如马头琴、托布秀尔(一种二弦的弹拨乐器)演绎强劲有力的摇滚乐。这次乐队与墨尔本交响乐团的合作,将会为观众带来前所未有的全新感受。

由李氏家族信托提供赞助,墨尔本艺术中心联合呈现。
