Freedom Rhapsody 2022 - Event Highlights

Freedom Rhapsody 2022 - Event Highlights

Classical pianist Ricker Choi brings you a piano concert featuring composers who use music to express pride and nationalism towards their birth places. Examples of works to be performed in the concert include Chopin’s mazurka and polonaise; Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody, and more. Pianist-composer Ricker Choi will also perform his Hong Kong Rhapsody (香港狂想曲) to express his emotions towards Hong Kong’s fight for freedom. Protest art created by Ricker will also be exhibited at the lobby of the venue. 古往今來,不少古典音樂家以樂韻發聲,以旋律抗爭。就生於波蘭的蕭邦為例(1810-1849),當波蘭於1815年被俄羅斯統治後,蕭邦拒絕申請俄國護照,自此從未踏足家鄉。其後,他寫作了多首《瑪祖卡》和《波蘭舞曲》的著名波蘭鄉土舞曲,以及《革命練習曲》等,充滿政治意味和思鄉之情。波蘭後來被德國納粹黨統治,而蕭邦的音樂更於波蘭被禁。 Also featuring guest pianist Chloe Sun ​ 由Ricker Choi創作的鋼琴變奏三部曲《香港狂想曲》及香港抗爭畫作分別被中共標籤為「獨歌」和「獨畫」,其中黨媒《文匯報》更點名指控他觸犯「國安法」,令Ricker以後不能回到他的出生地香港。 本次演奏會希望透過古典音樂,探討香港被中共獨裁政權統治的議題,使更多加拿大人了解及關心香港的苦況。​ 《香港狂想曲》Composed Based On: 願榮光歸香港 Glory to Hong Kong by Thomas dgx yhl Do You Hear the People Sing from Les Misérables by Claude-Michel Schönberg Sing Hallelujah to the Lord 獅子山下 Below the Lion Rock by Joseph Koo Kar-Fai 海闊天空 Boundless Oceans, Vast Skies by Beyond To connect with Ricker Choi: FB: RickerC YouTube: RickerChoi IG: ricker_choi Twitter: RickerChoi Telegram: HKRevolutionArt email: ricker.choi@yahoo.ca website: www.rickerchoi.com
