Other orchestral pieces on the bill include Song of the Yami Tribe (雅美族之歌) and Playing With Lions (弄獅) by Taiwanese composers. To balance these rather academic tunes, Guo will present the romantic melodies in Second Love Music Suite (第二愛情主題) with six Chinese woodwind instruments. "It's an all-time favorite program among Hong Kong audiences, especially on Valentine's Day," Guo said.
