Music In Words: Double Exposure

Music in Words: Double Exposure

Double Exposure


(In Putonghua)



For Asian classical musicians, the question of ‘cultural identity’ is often blurry. How do they discover their unique identity footprints in an art with a foreign cultural context? How do they explore and create new musical horizons by borrowing from their own cultural heritage?

Kappelmeister of Deutsche Oper am Rhein since 1996, Wen-pin Chien is the first Asian resident conductor in European opera houses. Chien strives to revolutionise conventional orchestral programmes, and is keen to introduce original compositions by Taiwanese composers onto the international stage. On the day before his concert with the Kaohsiung Symphony Orchestra, Wen-pin Chien will engage in a dialogue with renowned scholar Prof. Leo Lee on the oriental muse in Western music.
