Art Stories in Eastern Europe

The history of Eastern Europe has been obscured by a mysterious veil: territorial boundaries are difficult to define, vulnerable nations are consistently intruded, and people have frequently suffered the vicissitudes of war. At the same time, the region has generated stunning works of art and literature. Why should this be? A thought-provoking display in which stories unfold and Eastern Europe’s unique cultural contribution is revealed.

Book Exhibition of Eastern European Music

Adding another dimension to Festival activities, Hong Kong Central Library’s Arts Resource Centre presents an insightful display of books on the music of Eastern Europe. Works explore the characteristic features of the region’s musical traditions, including Slavic choral pieces, Orthodox chant, and nationalism, a movement which played an influential part on cultural development. Volumes on the life and works of famous composers, such as Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (Russia), Antonin Dvořák (Bohemia), Frederic Chopin (Poland), and Franz Liszt (Hungary) are also featured.
