The programme has been changed as below*, and hornists Lin Jiang and Todor Popstoyanov will not perform in the advertised concert. Other details remain unchanged. Ticket-holders may continue to use their tickets for admission to the updated performance.
The HK Phil is delighted to return to the stage of Tai Kwun performing powerful string music by three masters. Beethoven steered the string quartet into more passionate waters, his contemporary Schubert invested it with beauty and song-like melodies, while Mendelssohn gave it magic, charm and endearing innocence. Here are three composers who breathed new and unforgettable life into the string quartet!
