    Wu Wei sheng


    Claude Debussy Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune

    Bernd Richard Deutsch Phaenomena, concerto para sheng e orquestra (estreia em Portugal)

    Toru Takemitsu How Slow the Wind

    Igor Stravinski Suite de O Pássaro de Fogo


    When East and West come together in music, the result can be astonishing. Wu Wei is a renowned musician who reinvented the way the sheng is played, an ancient Chinese wind instrument. He started his musical path in a traditional Chinese orchestra, but his studies in Berlin allowed him to take the sheng into contemporary music, creating new techniques and integrating the instrument into unprecedented contexts. Phaenomena, by the Austrian Bernd Richard Deutsch, is now heard for the first time in Portugal and combines the sheng with the orchestra. The concert begins with an emblematic work by Debussy, a composer strongly inspired by the sounds of the East, and includes a piece by the Japanese Toru Takemitsu built in cycles that change slowly, like the wind or the waves in the sea.
