Italian famous harpist Raoul Moretti will perform together with Wuji Ensemble on Sunday 9th July (8-10 pm) at Hong Kong City Hall.

The Italian-Swiss harpist Raoul Moretti is a versatile and many-sided harpist with a very personal approach to the instrument. This has led him, over the years, to develop an artistic career-path in search of a personal style. Nowadays he's one of the most innovating harpist with an international trajectory, bringing his harp in different musical worlds (avant-garde, pop-rock, world music, electronics, nu-dance, classic, free improvising) and other forms of art (dance, painting, movie, video-installation) and many different ambients (theatre, clubs, disco, houses, streets, stations, medical centers).

The performance is included into the 13th World Harp Congress, the largest world-wide harp festival. The first of its kind in Asia, the Congress - themed A Harp Journey from West to East -, will make its debut in Hong Kong from 7th to 13th July in different venues.

Sands and Beyond is inspired by the immortal lines on the Dunhuang murals which vividly depict the apsaras dancing in their full splendor. These flying deities exemplify a sense of Oriental aesthetic beauty that seems to traverse the desolate desert into the vastness of the universe, and provides a perfect palette for the composer to paint his music.​

Besides the commonly known pipa, the konghou is also among the array of musical instruments frequently seen on the murals. Known as the Chinese harp, the konghou can be traced back to the harps in ancient Babylon, Egypt and Greece.

The concert highlights the harp and begins with a solo piece by renowned Italian harpist Raoul Moretti. Interspersed with dances and complemented by lighting and video images, the stylized pieces, in various combinations of Chinese and Western musical instruments, will be performed in a reserved and unaffected style with the musicians in a state of quiescence. The concert will end with the vigorous pipa ensemble piece “Heavenly Dance”, depicting music from Heaven.
