Introduction

The 2019 NTT New Year’s Concert features compositions that highlight the music of East and West and that possess universal appeal. Celebrated conductor LIAO Chia-hong leads the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra (NTSO) in the performance of CHUNG Yiu-kwong’s Festive Celebration. This is a vigorous work well suited to celebrating the New Year. Young and upcoming Taiwanese pianist CHANG Kai-min takes on the challenge of Rhapsody in Blue, composed by George Gershwin, which integrates classical music and jazz elements. The Planets by British composer Gustav Holst is a seven-movement suite, with each movement named for one of seven planets in the solar system. That of ‘Mars’ is powerful and intense, while that of ‘Neptune’ is quiet and gentle. Each movement carries forward expansive melodies. Accompanied by multimedia and interactive images, the audience is guided on a journey across the vast universe as part of a rich banquet of visual effects and live music.
