London-based artist collective Tangram join us for their third Lunar New Year Premieres concert at LSO St Luke’s. Set up by yangqin player Reylon Yount and composer Alex Ho, who was part of the LSO Soundhub composer scheme in 2018/19, Tangram create new music exploring the relationship between China and the West. Sun Keting, whose work Erasure will be performed on the night, was on the Soundhub composer scheme at the same time as Alex.
In the lead up to the concert on Saturday 29 January 2022 at LSO St Luke’s, Tangram give us a glimpse of the celebratory spirit of the concert marking the Lunar New Year. We hear from commissioned composers Beibei Wang (BW), Vivian Fung (VF), and Tonia Ko (TK) about their favourite Chinese dishes, how they usually celebrate the new year, and a little about their music.
