With January’s full moon dominating the night sky and Tai Kwun’s Prison Yard transformed into Hong Kong’s most unexpected outdoor concert hall, the natural starting point of Nancy Loo’s solo piano recital is Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.
One of Hong Kong’s most revered performers and pedagogues, Nancy Loo has brought the inspiration, solace and the healing powers of music not only to audiences in celebrated concert halls around the world, but also to prisoners serving their terms in Hong Kong’s jails. Through decades of volunteering, Nancy has taught, motivated and transformed inmates as a profound part of their rehabilitation, and her experiences behind bars provide the signposts to an unspoken narrative in this eclectic and searching concert.
A modern counterpart to Beethoven’s Sonata, Doming Lam’s Moonlight Over the Spring River brings the musical story to our own region in our own time, and Nancy’s boundless curiosity has gathered together a daringly diverse program, drawn from her encounters on the inside, which finds a deep and moving resonance in the extraordinary setting of the Prison Yard.
