FALLANights in the Gardens of SpainListen
MENDELSSOHNThe Hebrides OvertureListen


Jun Märkl is known for his refined and idiomatic explorations of the French impressionists. In this concert, he marks the centenary of the death of Claude Debussy with a performance of his famous evocation of the sea in all its moods, La Mer. Märkl will also lead the HK Phil in the Hong Kong premiere of Circulating Ocean, a richly colourful score by Japanese contemporary composer Toshio Hosokawa. The programme also includes Mendelssohn’s The Hebrides Overture which portrays the violent seas off the west coast of Scotland, and the Spanish composer Manuel de Falla’s highly atmospheric piano concerto, Nights in the Gardens of Spain, performed by the winner of the Gilmore Artist Award in 2006, Ingrid Fliter.


Change of Programme: At the request of soloist Ingrid Fliter, the advertised programme of Saint-Säens’ Piano Concerto no. 2 is now changed to Falla’s Nights in the Gardens of Spain.
