Latin Passion; Gaylord Chan at 80; Film Review: "Wallace and Gromit - Curse of the Were-Rabbit"; The Borodin Quartet ; Live Studio Performance "Musical Moments" (11 Oct 2005)


Latin American arts and culture are getting ever more popular in the Hong Kong. The Leisure and Cultural Services Department has made them the subject of a month-long cultural festival that starts on the 20th. 80% of the tickets are already sold, but before they go completely, we present a taster of what's available. In our Arts Diary we talk to one veteran Hong Kong artist who has two exhibitions on right now. He's Gaylord Chan, and the first exhibition of his work, "Gaylord Chan at 80" is at Hanart Gallery until this Saturday, curated by owner Johnson Tsang. The other, which, showing at the Hong Kong Arts Centre, concentrates on much smaller and more high-tech works. If anyone knows how to make plasticine entertaining, it's Nick Park, the founder of Aardman Animations. Gary Pollard reviews the group's latest film "Wallace and Gromit - Curse of the Were-Rabbit". Now in his 80s, Valentin Berlinsky still teaches and travels the world with the quartet he founded in 1945. Initially the group was called The Moscow Philharmonic Quartet. Ten years it was renamed the Borodin Quartet. The ensemble, considered one of the world's greatest, has recorded a wide range of music, including works from Beethoven, Schubert, Mozart, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky. Anf finally we cram most of the cast of "Musical Moments" into our studio. It's a show that features highlights of many Broadway musicals. Marsha Yuan and Tony Vincent sing " Sun and Moon" from "Miss Saigon"
