Adeline Wong's Interweaves premieres at the ACL Festival Hanoi in October

The Asian Composers League (ACL) in Hanoi this year will be a special occasion for award winning composer Adeline Wong, whose string quartet Interweaves receives its world premiere at the festival.

It was composed specially for the Malaysian Women Composers CD project headed by Jessica Cho, which is in progress and is due for completion in September.

The ACL will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam from October 12 - 18, 2016 in conjunction with the 2nd "Asia - Europe" New Music Festival in Vietnam 2016 at the Vietnam National Academy of Music.

Malaysian works featured at the festival include:
  • Interweaves for String Quatet - Adeline Wong (world premiere)
  • Desir Angin Cina Selatan (Sounds of the South China Sea Winds) for chamber group - Ahmad Muriz Che Rose
  • Jasper Singh Pestonji for Bass clarinet, Cello and Tape - Hardesh Singh
  • Taming Sari for oboe, trumpet and string quartet - Raja Mohamad Alif (Young composer's competition)
Also representing Malaysia at the Young Composers Award this year is UiTM lecturer Raja Mohamad Alif, whose work based on a historical subject uses sounds and motifs instead of traditional musical themes to paint its sound world.
