DAWN UPSHAW + CCOHK
The phenomenally talented Dawn Upshaw is the leading star in this heady musical journey to foreign lands. Having garnered 5 Grammy Awards, 50 recordings and 300 appearances at the Metropolitan Opera, she is celebrated worldwide for her ability to reach the heart of both the music and the lyrics. For her Hong Kong debut conducted by Jeffery Meyer she performs signature songs by Berio and Canteloube which are folk-inspired and by turns winsome, witty and sanguine. Beautiful rural scenes are also depicted in two orchestral suites by Czech nationalist composer Dvořák and John Ireland, one of the greatest purveyors of English impressionism.
