Fung Lam 林丰

Composer / Musician

With the premiere of his 23-minutes orchestral work Unlocking in May 2008 by the BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor Charles Hazlewood, Fung Lam became not only the first composer commissioned to compose a new work specifically for BBC Radio 3’s Discovering Music programme, but also the youngest Chinese composer ever to have received a commission from the BBC.

Ranging from original concert and media works to various arrangements, sometimes involving both Western and Chinese instruments, Fung’s music has been performed around the world, including festivals such as the Cheltenham Music Festival, BASBWE International Wind Festival, Soundwaves Festival, Second Glance Festival, BBC Electric Proms, Musicarama (Hong Kong), Le French May (Hong Kong), as well as Asian Composers’ League Asian Music Festivals in Japan, Israel and New Zealand.

Performers of his music have included the BBC Philharmonic, BBC Concert Orchestra, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra, Hong Kong Festival Wind Orchestra, Carducci Quartet, Silk String Quartet, Grenzenlos, Halcyon, Ensemble TIMF and cellist Frances-Marie Uitti.

Fung has provided music for various theatre productions, including Yellow Earth Theatre’s production of Festival for the Fish in London in 2004.  He also wrote music for the Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) TV documentary series Weather III in 2005, and Philharmonia Orchestra’s virtual orchestra installation at the South Bank Centre in London in 2006. 

His music has received broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, Radio New Zealand, and RTHK Radio 4.
