Leonis Quartet promise classical music and laughter in "Total Eclipse"
Hong Kong (HKSAR) - Graduates of some of the most prestigious music schools in France, the members of Leonis Quartet, namely violinists Guillaume Antonin and Sebastien Richaud, violist Alphonse Dervieux and cellist Julien Decoin, promise an evening of classical music and laughter in a concert "Total Eclipse" to be staged in October.
Highly cultivated in the field of classical music, the four musicians will entertain the audience with a burlesque and poetic performance involving anything from passionate tango and free-spirited gypsy music to psychedelic rock and classical.
"Total Eclipse" is a musical and visual theatre show that offers an alternative image of classical music through humour and movement. The show uses comical situations rather than musical gags, and relies-in part-on a musical repertoire often unknown to the general public, also including some of the greatest string quartet pieces by Beethoven, Mozart and Haydn. The show takes the audience on a voyage to the fantastic world of the classical musician, who may try to free himself from the rigorous demands of classical music but gets drawn back in again and again.
"Total Eclipse" by Leonis Quartet is one of the highlights of the Music Delights Series presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.
The concert will be staged at 8pm on October 6 (Saturday) at the Auditorium of the Sha Tin Town Hall. Tickets priced at $120, $180 and $240 are now available from the URBTIX (http://www.urbtix.hk" target="_blank">www.urbtix.hk).
