Hongkong Chinese Orchestra

Follow-up activities

Once the list was published, the Central Conservatory of Music was commissioned to collect information for later text, sound publication. Then the first published plan was on the “People’s Daily” overseas edition. Starting from April 6 1993, three times a week, a 1000-word-or-so description about each work on the list was published.

On June 5 1993 in Beijing, the official awarding ceremony was held at the Great Hall of the People. Award winners and other VIP musicians were invited. Representative works from Mainland China, Hongkong, Taiwan were performed at the opening ceremony. Tracks are:

Butterfly Lovers

Butterfly Lovers, Violin Concerto

Mainland China: Li Huan “Spring Festival Overture“, Taiwan: Ma Shui-lung, “Bangdi Concerto“, Hong Kong: Chan Wing-wah, “Fei Du.” Ma Shui-long’s entry was conducted by Taiwan’s pioneer conductor Lv Shao-Jia.

Other selected works were performed later within ten days. But since the list is too long, not all works can be completely played out.

The Association also arranged series of concerts in Shanghai, Chengdu, Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore and even Taiwan. There were several record companies in Taiwan paying close attention to the event, and interested in recording all works of the list.
