Adopting the creed “search for roots in tradition, find ways in the avant-garde”, composer Doming Lam was a maverick pioneer, and one of the very few among his generation of Chinese musicians to have earned an entry in the authoritative Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. By way of five chamber works from different stages of his creative career, this concert traces the path that the maestro pursued in modernising Chinese music over a span of half of a century.
