Abstract:

"Many artists make huge sacrifices for their art. But not many have made as drastic or painful a sacrifice as the castrati. They were men who'd suffered the unkindest cut so their voices would combine the range of female singers with the power of male ones. Last week, mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli performed two shows in Hong Kong for this year's arts festival, one of which was dedicated to songs written especially for them."--RTHK web site.

"If you want to hear the music of the German composer Johann Sebastian Bach in its most authentic form, you could do worse than visit Japan, or at least see a performance by Masaaki Suzuki. Suzuki was born in Kobe, Japan. After studying in Europe, he returned to his own country, where he set up a music group to perform Bach's music on authentic instruments. He and his ensemble were here last week for the Hong Kong Arts Festival."--RTHK web site.

"To celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Rabbit, Sin Sin Fine Art gallery is holding an exhibition that highlights the work of ten local women artists. The exhibition 'Women Artists 211' opened on February 11th, the day of the Lantern Festival. It ends next Tuesday."--RTHK web site.

"In our Arts Dairy we're looking at the work of Lin Xue who creates images of plants and organisms that are like something out of a dream. The title of his new exhibition 'The Sixth Day' is a Biblical reference, and refers to the unspoiled state of the world when it was first created. The show, which also includes a collaboration of drawings and Polaroids made with Caroline Chiu, is on at Gallery EXIT in Central until the 21st of this month."--RTHK web site.
