“[Guo Yazhi]’s melodious tremolo is highly expressive.”

– The Washington Post

A master of suona, together with established Western musicians, in a dazzling East-meets-West concert.

Guo Yazhi, widely regarded as the best suona player in Asia, presents an exquisite evening of music with his fellow Berklee College of Music composer-musicians David Fiuczynski (guitar), Utar Artun (piano), Petar Krstajic (bass) and Jarrell Campbell (drums). The concert features original compositions and re-arrangements of popular favourites such as The Dragon’s Song, Beijing Blues, Dance of the Golden Snake, and Turkish Delights, showcasing their instrumental mastery, with Guo also featuring on other traditional Chinese wind instruments.

Multi-instrumentalist Guo specialises in woodwinds and is also a music innovator. He graduated with distinction from the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, and has won many international awards including the Grand Prize at New York's International Pro Musicis Award (1998), and the Hong Kong Award for Best Artist (2012). He has performed with many orchestras around the world including Orchestra de la Suisse Switzerland, South Korea Daejeon Philharmonic Orchestra, Belgium's Flanders Symphony Orchestra, Malaysia Chinese Orchestra, Singapore Chinese Orchestra, and National Chinese Orchestra of Taiwan.

There will be a post-performance autograph session.

“他使唢呐大放异彩,成为音乐会上的焦点!” ——《日内瓦论坛》

“他悦耳的颤音极富表现力!” ——《华盛顿邮报》

当民乐遇见爵士乐,唢呐邂逅萨克斯管,会迸发出怎样的火花?

“中国唢呐第一吹”郭雅志将在《龙在吟》音乐会上展现唢呐“时尚”的声音极至,见证他在古典与流行、即兴与爵士之间的来去潇洒。

传统科班出身的他,在音乐事业发展鼎盛时到美国伯克利音乐学院学习爵士乐。他以独特的个人风格,让民族的唢呐同西乐对话,在东西乐之间悠然自得,为唢呐的表演造就了一个无以为疆的空间。

先后荣获美国纽约乐府国际音乐大奖和2012年香港年度最佳艺术家奖的郭雅志,近年更是流行乐界的热门乐手,李克勤、黄耀明和“顾嘉辉名曲精选”音乐会等大型演唱会都见他的踪影。

来届的华艺节,他将联同四位在伯克利深造时的好友玩一场融合爵士及中国风的音乐会,演奏他个人和友人的创作,包括《龙在吟》、《北京布鲁斯》、《金蛇狂舞》、《情迷土耳其》等,让唢呐兼具放荡不羁和低吟悲凉的声音,精巧的融于流行与爵士,释放出一种光彩夺人的音场魅力!

(时长约1小时15分钟,无中场休息。)

演出后将进行签名会。
