The beauty of music knows no borders, and unifies listeners in the tuneful sundry of our harmonious world. Award-winning Canadian composer Vincent Ho writes music for the stringed Chinese instrument the pipa, in an original composition performed by the Grammy-nominated Wu Man. The child prodigy Leonid Nediak takes centre stage with the rhythmically stirring Piano Concerto No. 3 by Sergei Prokofiev. In the midst of the First Great War, Danish composer Carl Nielsen penned his “Inextinguishable” Symphony No. 4, a heroic reflection on the nature of humankind.

Two ostentatious works for the piano by Hungarian composer Franz Liszt lead the evening’s concert featuring prize-winning pianist Ricker Choi. Liszt’s demonic dance of death, Totentanz, conjures the Day of Wrath, while his Piano Concerto No. 2 displays theatrical feats of extravagance at the keyboard. Illuminating audiences is harpist Teresa Suen-Campbell, who performs a world premiere by the celebrated Chinese composer Chan Wing-Wah. The beautifully orchestrated Symphony No. 3 “Polish” by Tchaikovsky is sure to please the ears in its unconventional five-movement format.

From the most woeful and sinister themes emerge the most moving melodies. Camille Saint-Saëns’ energetically haunting Danse Macabre evokes the Devil in music, featuring the Kindred Spirits Orchestra’s own concertmaster, Jing Ye, on violin. Grammy-nominated composer and flutist Ron Korb performs Taiwanese composer Ma Shui-long’s thrilling Bamboo Flute Concerto. The bloodbath of “The Year 1905” in Russia’s revolutionary past is masterfully illustrated in Shostakovich’s fierce and impassioned Symphony No. 11.

Maestro Kristian Alexander unites the Kindred Spirits Orchestra in their concluding concert of 2017-2018. Ravel’s most celebrated work, Boléro, is a cleverly crafted rising orchestral crescendo through the use of brilliant ever-changing instrumental colours and texture. Intriguingly annotated “Herein is enshrined the soul of…..” makes Elgar’s Violin Concerto, a truly touching piece where “love and faith meet.” Taken from motives from his sinfully immoral opera, The Fiery Angel, Symphony No. 3 by Prokofiev unquestionably rouses our darkest emotions.
