“From note to hope; In music we rejoice”
Welcome our dear audience to our greatly missed home – Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall! After all these challenging months, we are especially excited to raise the curtain of our 2020/21 season with renowned conductor Lio Kuokman.
Also an acclaimed concert pianist, Lio will play and conduct Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, joined by HK Phil Concertmaster Jing Wang and Principal Cello Richard Bamping, to celebrate the composer’s 250th birthday and the joy of collective music-making.
Lio will also conduct Thanksgiving to Joe-Kwan, the Kitchen God by Doming Lam, “Father of Hong Kong Modern Music”. The programme concludes with Richard Strauss’ colourful Der Rosenkavalier Suite and kicks off with Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, which Lio and the HK Phil dedicate to each and every one of the healthcare professionals who have tirelessly combatted COVID-19 in Hong Kong.
This is the first programme of our Beethoven Festival. To honour the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, all Beethoven Festival seats are available at a uniform price of $250. Let us rejoice with Beethoven!
The concert on 10th October 2020 is broadcast live on RTHK Radio 4 (FM Stereo 97.6-98.9 MHz and radio4.rthk.hk) and with a repeat on 15th October 2020 (Thu) at 2 pm.
