茶餐廳 自捌伍貳合唱組曲

蝸居。窩居 自捌伍貳合唱組曲

二零一九年。 香港住屋的荒誕、畸形現象,人所共知。 青年人面對單位愈劏愈細、租金卻愈住愈貴的現實與無奈,苦無出路。 作曲家把青年人這份「但求有蝸居」的卑微訴求訴諸音樂,然而,在音符高低跌宕之間,卻同時道出「安樂窩」的真諦,原來擁有家人的愛比擁有一室窩居更是彌足珍貴。

紅白藍精神 自捌伍貳合唱組曲

《紅白藍精神》是一整代成長於20世紀末的真香港人的集體回憶。他們對香港那份獨特的情懷,憑歌盡訴昔日生活裡的甜酸苦辣,箇中滋味實不足為外人道。 紅白藍尼龍帆布袋不但象徵著香港這片福地一個謙卑的開始,更代表了七百多萬港人那份堅韌靈活的精神。整篇樂曲巧合地全長97個小節,令作品增添了一層象徵意義。

假如世界沒有聲音

《假如世界沒有聲音》是作曲家為母校聖保羅男女中學及附屬小學創作的樂曲,靈感源自校園的合唱團生活,歌曲描述合唱團員一起禱告和一起落淚的時光,更記載他們之間的友愛和情誼,難以想像假如聲音從此消失,世界將會是何樣光景。

HOUSE RULES

Dedicated to those whose mobile phones had gone off in concerts, this song is inspired by the famous "Nokia" ringtone - a motif from Grans Vals for Solo Guitar by Spanish composer, Francisco Tárrega.

NO PLACE IN OUR WORLD

Dedicated to the families and friends of the victims in the Las Vegas Shooting on October 1st, 2017, No Place In Our World is a stern musical response to violence of all shape and form and is inspired by the following quote by Leonard Bernstein:


“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully and more devotedly than ever before.”

THE LORD'S PRAYER

The Lord’s Prayer, when set to music, allows one more time and space to reflect one’s thoughts, repent one’s sins and cleanse one’s soul.

​雪中送炭

The contrast between the coldness of the snow and the warmth of burning charcoal is depicted here between the major and minor sections, conveying the meaning of this Chinese idiom: to offer help in one's hours of need.

for SSA, violin & piano

掩耳盜鈴

What better way is there to present this Chinese idiom than for the composer to "steal" from Bach, Grieg, Brahms, Beethoven, Paganini and Mozart unashamedly?

AS SMALL AS A MUSTARD SEED

With text adapted from Matthew 17:20 and Proverbs 16:20, As Small As A Mustard Seed begins with a majestic piano introduction depicting the seemingly immovable “mountains” of life’s struggles and obstacles. But when the purity of the children’s voices is heard in singing, “If you have faith in Him...", a stark contrast and a sense of inner peace is found in the music.

WARREN LEE

Composer

During a live radio interview when he was only four years old, Warren sat on the piano and composed a short “requiem” in memory of his deceased pet bird. Although the piano and his debut performance with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of six have headlined his career over the years, Warren has quietly produced a substantial catalogue of music as a composer, many of which have been recorded and published. Warren always strives for a balance between originality and immediate appeal in his creative outputs. 

His choral composition, House Rules – based on the famous “Nokia” ringtone and dedicated to those whose phones had gone off during concerts – won the Second Prize of the Giovanni Bergamo Classic Music Award in Switzerland 2013. Many of his choral works are dedicated to the choirs at St. Paul’s Co-educational College, where he serves as the Music Director.
