From Norway to Sha Tin: A Musical and Visual Journey Through Time

Hong Kong has caught the imagination of many a traveler, but few as much as that of the Norwegian missionary Karl Ludvig Reichelt (1877–1952), who came to China and founded the celebrated Christian center Tao Fong Shan in Sha Tin.

Inspired by the fascinating history of Tao Fong Shan, Musicus presents an unprecedented series of concerts at the celebrated heritage site. The series features pieces by the greatest composer of Reichelt’s homeland, Edvard Grieg, whose work Peer Gynt chronicles a journey from the Norwegian mountains to the North African desert. Musicus’ Artistic Director, cellist Trey Lee, and his award-winning international musicians from Canada, France and Hong Kong will also perform other works inspired by travel––Dvořák’s journey to America, and Kodály’s expeditions around rural Europe collecting examples of folk music.

It promises to be a remarkable experience, also featuring an exhibition of porcelain specially made for this concert series by a veteran porcelain master, and a pre-concert guided tour of the complex. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience incredible music in a setting that resonates with the perseverance of the Norwegian missionary who built this Hong Kong institution.
