Paavo Järvi & Alena Baeva
SWIRE MAESTRO SERIES
The HK Phil welcomes the return of two artists who gave exhilarating performances last season. Paavo Järvi returns with Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony – the composer’s most frequently performed work and a testament to an era of struggle and oppression. Also returning is Luxembourgish violinist Alena Baeva, who brings us Stravinsky’s meticulously structured Violin Concerto, widely considered his best orchestral work. Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnol is a perfect opener for the concert, as it echoes the dance-like qualities of Stravinsky’s neo-classical concerto.
The concert runs approximately 1 hour 45 minutes with an intermission.
HK Phil Jubilee Tickets ($50) will be available for selected concerts during counter sale period on a first- come, first-served basis.
