THE 7TH TAOIST CONCERT: THE GREAT WAY

Music, most importantly, is to tug at people’s heartstrings and to touch the souls in depth. When we listen to music, it is a great delight to be able to indulge ourselves into the artistic conception of the music and experience the emotions and verve therein. In this year’s Hong Kong Culture Festival, The Great Way is selected to illustrate the philosophy of the Chinese music culture. Meanwhile, Crane’s Suite For Shakuhachi, which consists of five chapters: the crane’s flying, singing, lodging, eating, and untitled, are performed by the Japanese Shakuhachi to depict the five common states of cranes, expressing the untitled artistic conception of oriental music through Zen. In the concert, the optimism of Taoist music and the untitled optimism of oriental music are complementary to each other, explaining the various styles and states of music respectively in the first half and the second half of the concert. This is indeed the keynote of the concert.
