You are cordially invited to meet three great composers on two consecutive days at this year’s Swire Classic Insights series. Guided by HK Phil musicians, you will get a deeper appreciation of masterpieces by Ravel, Beethoven and Prokofiev. Conductors Lorenzo Iosco and Andrew Ling will introduce the series with a spellbinding fairy tale and two beautiful dances by Ravel. Next, Domas Juškys will explain how Beethoven transformed his struggles at a dark time in his life into the bright and sunny Eighth Symphony. Finally we meet the Ukrainian born composer, Sergey Prokofiev. Conductor Leung Kin-fung will show how Prokofiev employed both sarcasm and sorrow in his invigorating music.


Each performance runs 60 minutes approximately, without an intermission.


Public registration starts from 25 Apr 2022 (Mon), 10am. Please visit the registration page at POPTICKET website again to register for your ticket(s) at the time specified.
