Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (23 December 2020)



PROKOFIEVViolin Concerto no. 1
PROKOFIEVSelections from Romeo & Juliet
and more


We are proud to welcome back world-renowned violinist Akiko Suwanai in an all-Russian programme. Praised by The Times for her “noble playing,” Akiko Suwanai, laureate prize-winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition, will perform Prokofiev's first violin concerto, a brilliant work filled with lush, lyrical romanticism and strikingly original harmonies. Directed by our new Resident Conductor, Lio Kuokman, the programme also features the highly expressive and colourful music Prokofiev wrote for the greatest tragic love story ever told, Romeo and Juliet.



Akiko Suwanai is invited via a special collaboration between the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra and Premiere Performances.  Suwanai will be performing with the Premiere Performances on 18 Jan in “Akiko Suwanai & Friends: Dvořák Piano Quintet”. Enjoy 10% off when purchasing tickets to both concerts in the same transaction at URBTIX.




Change of Conductor & Programme

In view of the latest situation of COVID-19, and uncertainties relating to such matters as global travel and in-bound quarantine measures, Maestro Jaap van Zweden has had to withdraw from the advertised performances of "Jaap Series: JAAP’s Beethoven 3 | Akiko Suwanai".


We are grateful that conductor Lio Kuokman has kindly agreed to step in. The artist remains unchanged. Along with discussions with the conductor and artist, "Jaap Series: JAAP’s Beethoven 3 | Akiko Suwanai" is retitled to "Akiko Suwanai Plays Prokofiev" and the updated programme is listed below.


Ticket-holders may continue to use their tickets for admission according to the date printed on the tickets for the updated programme. For ticketing assistance, please contact the HK Phil Ticketing Office from Monday to Friday (10:00-12:30, 14:00-18:00), excluding Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays, at 2721 0132 / 2721 2332 (call); or (email); or at 5628 7595 (WhatsApp ONLY).
