The concert director, Xie Junyi, said he thinks highly of the sound effects in this 4K-restored version of the film, adding that the film's melodies are all very touching.
Starring Tim Roth, "The Legend of 1900" tells the story of a baby boy found abandoned in 1900 on an ocean liner. The boy grows into a musical prodigy who never sets foot on land.
The film will be released tomorrow for the first time on the Chinese mainland.
