Established in 2008, Die Konzertisten (DK) is recognised as one of Hong Kong’s foremost chamber choirs. DK performs repertoire ranging from Renaissance polyphony and Baroque masterpieces to Romantic delicacies and newly commissioned works.
With Music Director Felix Yeung and Resident Conductor Sanders Lau, DK regularly collaborates with internationally distinguished artists, including conductors Stephen Layton, Jonathan Cohen, John Butt, Helmuth Rilling, Chen Yun-hung, Leif Segerstam, baroque cellist Viola de Hoog, baroque flautist Marten Root, countertenors Iestyn Davies and Tim Mead; and have performed such diverse works as Handel’s Israel in Egypt, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Mozart’s Requiem, Bruckner’s Mass in E minor, Durufle’s Requiem, Howell’s Requiem and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms.
A keen advocate of Baroque music, DK ardently promotes the historically informed performance of early music to the local audience. Recently DK collaborated with the award-winning period-instrument ensemble Arcangelo and its director Jonathan Cohen, giving a critically acclaimed performance of Bach’s Mass in B minor. Other recent highlights include Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s St John Passion.
