There are a lot of thoughtful moments — the imagery of the shut-down streets in Hong Kong, the tied up chairs in the concert hall, our star ferry, our harbour… that solitude. It is really moving.” Kathy Lam, RTHK 4

“I’ve been to the recital live. But revisiting his Goldberg Variations in the cinema still touches me deeply” Daisy Lee, Tai Kung Pao

Film Synopsis

Premiere Performances’ first concert film to celebrate the long-awaited return of live music! Despite a three week hotel quarantine, Berlin-based pianist Chiyan Wong returned to his hometown in March 2021 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and gave a heart-felt recital to live audience. For the first time in almost six months, classical music lovers gathered in a concert hall again for the inspiration of a live music performance.

As the centrepiece of his stunning programme, the award-winning pianist shared his unique interpretation of Busoni’s kaleidoscopic arrangement of Bach’s classic Goldberg Variations.
