Introduction to IC2023
Hailed by the Financial Times as a festival with a "finely hewn sense of craft," Intimacy of Creativity – The Bright Sheng Partnership: Composers Meet Performers in Hong Kong (IC) returns for another innovative season from June 24 to July 2, 2023, presented in partnership with the renowned Curtis Institute of Music!
Intimacy of Creativity explores the creative process through public, in-depth Open Discussions on the campus of The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), which presents the festival. Revised compositions by selected Composer Fellows, between ages 20 and 35, are formally presented at Preview Concerts on campus, and World Premiere Concerts held in renowned venues in downtown Hong Kong.
The 2023 season launches the second partnership between HKUST and the Curtis Institute of Music. IC Founder and Artistic Director Bright Sheng (HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study Helmut and Anna Pao Sohmen Professor-at-Large) is joined by Guest Artists, including
• Kristina Bachrach
• Nan Jia
• Viano String Quartet
• Fuki Wang
• Tania Villasuso
• Chelsea Wang
After receiving over 100 applications from composers from over 20 countries of origin to the IC2023 Call-for-Scores, the following emerging composers have been selected to participate:
• Angela Slater (United Kingdom)
• Adrian Wong (Hong Kong)
• Bracha Bdil (Israel)
The IC2023 Call-for-Scores First Round Selection panel included:
• Derek Bermel
• Gilad Hochman
IC2023 is co-presented by the HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study and the Curtis Institute of Music. The season is presented with support from Helmut and Anna Pao Sohmen, and media partners Radio Television Hong Kong, and Naxos Music Group.
