《我不會唱歌》, a nice song by Hong Kong Singer - Hacken Lee.
This song has showcased Hacken's powerful singing skills, accompanied by China's great pianist, Lang Lang.
The most interesting part is the arrangement of this song, by Edmond Tsang, who merged classical music into pop music.

《我不會唱歌》, a nice song by Hong Kong Singer - Hacken Lee.
This song has showcased Hacken's powerful singing skills, accompanied by China's great pianist, Lang Lang.
The most interesting part is the arrangement of this song, by Edmond Tsang, who merged classical music into pop music.

In the Romantic period (19th century), Niccolò Paganini has written many great pieces including 24 Caprice and 5 Violin concertos. Later, Franz Liszt has composed a series of six études for the piano based on the compositions of Niccolò Paganini for violin. La campanella (The Little Bell) is the third of Franz Liszt's six Grandes études de Paganini, S. 141 (1851). This piece is a revision of an earlier version from 1838, the Études d'exécution transcendente d'après Paganini, S. 140. Its melody comes from the final movement of Niccolò Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 2 in B minor, where the tune was reinforced metaphorically by a 'little handbell'.

Now in the 21st century, we hear this great piece again in 《我不會唱歌》. Not only we hear Hacken Lee's singing, but also Paganini and Liszt~

The newly written pieces are inspired by the season of Spring. The music itself speaks of a personal, familiar and comfortable place, and the perspective of looking out from it through an imaginative window. The title track, Room with a View, weaves warm melodies that offer a feeling of being alone in a Spring morning sun-lit room.

The provision of online exams is a new and very exciting step for us and, we hope, for our community of teachers and learners too. I completely understand that many of you will be disappointed that you cannot use these online exams sooner.

However, by launching them in the UK with a limited number of candidates, we can make sure that the processes and systems that support the exams are effective and run smoothly.
