Programme

R. STRAUSSFestliches Präludium
KORNGOLDViolin Concerto
R. STRAUSSAn Alpine Symphony (with images by Tobias Melle)

 

Richard Strauss once boasted that he could depict even a knife and fork in music, so when he paints the full majesty of the Alps, the results are truly spectacular! First, the “ravishing” Alena Baeva plays the luscious Violin Concerto by Korngold – the Viennese genius who made it big in Hollywood. And then Lio Kuokman takes a supersized HK Phil on an audio-visual mountain journey: waterfalls, glaciers and breathtaking views, all without leaving your seat!

 

The concert runs approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with an intermission.


Orchestral performance with screen projection.
Some seats may have restricted sightline to the main screen. Supplementary screens are provided on two sides of the stage. Please refer to the seating plan shown when purchasing tickets.


For standard tickets, the general public can enjoy up to 15% off, while Club Bravo members are entitled up to an exclusive 30% off for ticket purchases.
