TCHAIKOVSKYSuite no. 4 in G, op. 61, Mozartiana
MAHLERSymphony no. 5


Mahler put everything into his fifth symphony – not only a huge orchestra, but also his most profound questions, his greatest inspirations, and his convictions. In its sublime final movement, its dark opening is overturned by triumph. The programme will begin with Tchaikovsky’s Mozartiana, a personal tribute to Mozart from one of the greatest Russian composers.

We are delighted that Vassily Sinaisky will conduct these performances, stepping in at late notice for Jaap van Zweden, who has withdrawn on doctor’s advice.


Maestro Jaap van Zweden has withdrawn from these concerts, along with other performances with the Chicago and Dallas Symphony Orchestras on medical advice. The two concerts in Hong Kong will be conducted by Vassily Sinaisky. We take this opportunity to thank our public for their understanding. A full-refund will be made available to affected ticket-holders who do not wish to attend following these changes - please click here for the refund form. Kindly contact our ticketing office at 2721 2332 or for enquiries.
