THE Hong Kong Baptist College's Department of Music and Fine Arts will present a concert called ''The Composition Honours Project Recital'' on May 14 at the Academy Community Hall. The concert will feature world premieres by the college's talented students such as Daniel Cheung, Jackie Kong, James Lai, Terry Law and Shiffrin Tso. Dr Christopher Coleman, the Composition Department's co-ordinator, said: ''The energy and enthusiasm of the students shows that this is going to be a very interesting concert. ''Both Chinese and Western influences will be heard in the pieces.'' James Lai's Tian Wen is based on a classic Chinese tale about the creation of the universe, and is scored for a large ensemble comprising a tenor soloist, female chorus, piano, bass, french horn, and percussion. It combines traditional compositional techniques with avant-garde ideas to portray the creation story. Jackie Kong's Four Japanese Songs is a quiet work full of oriental colours reflective of the Haiku texts. Kong's Riot 1994 is a complete contrast in tone, scored for a quartet for flute, clarinet, horns and bass. It features unusual combinations of tone colours, as does Shiffrin Tso's Heat One Up for trombone and two pianos. Another work by Tso, Two of a Kind, is a sentimental interpretation for two sopranos. Terry Law's Never Regretting Suite blends East and West through an interesting combination of Chinese mouth organ, clarinet and percussion. Daniel Cheung's special interest in tone colour and virtuosity will be demonstrated in his works for voice and piano and solo clarinet. Admission to the concert at 8 pm is free.
