Belcanto 12.11

The Rui Cunha Foundation presents on Saturday, November 12 at 5:00 pm, a “Joint Recital of Bel Canto & The Macau Polytechnic University”, integrated in the series of musical concerts “Nam Van Sound Waves”, co-organized by the Macau Vocal Association.

Under the orientation of Macau Polytechnic University’s Music Course teacher, Dr. Wang Xi, the selected program for this afternoon will showcase the highly accomplished voices of sopranos Yirong Wang and Yuan Tao, and tenors Liangyi Chen and Yuzhuo Zhang, accompanied on the piano by teacher Ms. May Poon.

Also noteworthy is the presence of oboe player Jiahui Lu, performing a classical theme by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The recital will also feature musical pieces by composers Gabriel Fauré, George Friedrich Handel, Ernest Chausson, Gaetano Donizetti, Giuseppe Verdi, Francis Poulenc, Vincenzo Bellini, Siyue Zhao, Shande Ding, Changqun Ao and Yi Zhou.

Bel Canto is considered the maximum expression of human voice. The Italian term was coined in the 18th century and is still today taught in a similar way as in the past. This vocal technique emphasizes the beauty of sound and the technical capacity of the artist, instead of the dramatic expression or romantic emotion.

Admission is free.

Don’t miss it!

For Macau, Further and Higher!
