Dreams Wisdom Innocence
Harpsichordist Chau-Yee Lo showcases Karlheinz Stockhausen’s most popular and intimate work Tierkreis (The Zodiac), written for his toddler daughter Julika. Each of the twelve musical-box melodies – one for each Zodiac sign – gives us a glimpse into the gentle and humorous side of Stockhausen’s character, evident in his relationship with Julika. In collaboration with composer Chung-Shih Hoh, who has written a unique conversation piece in answer to each of Stockhausen’s simple and beguiling melodies, this recital promises to be both an entertaining and enchanting journey into childhood.
Dreams Wisdom Innocence is part of the series Childhood and Music which celebrates childhood meaning-making through music in collaboration with other creative arts.
