The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, in collaboration with HKU MUSE, is delighted to showcase the bassoonists of the HK Phil, as part of this chamber music series spotlighting different sections of the orchestra. This varied programme gives the chance to know the bassoon more closely, with its large range of colours, textures and techniques. In addition to lively original compositions for bassoon ensembles of two to five players, the programme features works for solo bassoon and solo contrabassoon, as well as a world premiere by HKU composer Peter Tang. A selection of movements from Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition arranged for five bassoons will conclude the performance.


The programme is approximately an hour without intermission, suggested for ages 8 and above.
