LCSD's "Stories Untold" music theatre to tell friendship and creativity story of four illustrious musicians
     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department's Chamber Music Connections series will present a performance of "Stories Untold: Brahms, Joachim & the Schumanns" in June, telling audiences the story of friendship among four 19th-century renowned musicians through music and theatre.

     The story of this music theatre is about Joseph Joachim, who recalls anecdotes about his friends, Clara Schumann, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms, while he is tidying up old letters, and recollects the good old days when they inspire and encourage each other along the journey of music composition. The plot of the story will be threaded by live performances of beautiful music works composed by the four musicians, pre-recorded narration and live interpretation by a devising performer, revealing to audiences the encounters and true friendship among the four.

     Artistic planners of the music theatre include local pianist Linda Yim, music educator Calvin Lai and independent producer Janet Yau, while Lai is also responsible for texts and pre-recorded narration. The Director is Patrick Chiu, with live performances by Linda Yim (piano), Dick Wong (devising performer), Nancy Loo (guest piano) and Brian Choi (guest violin).

     The Chamber Music Connections: "Stories Untold: Brahms, Joachim & the Schumanns" will be staged at 8pm on June 21 (Wednesday) and 2.30pm on June 22 (Thursday) at the Studio Theatre of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
