The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, Music Director Jaap van Zweden, our Board of Governors as well as the administration put the health and well-being of our audiences, players and staff at the forefront of our priorities. Like most cultural organisations, we have made major adjustments to our regular activities in order to accommodate these exceptional circumstances. 

We continue to liaise closely with our performance partners and venues to ensure appropriate arrangements for the remainder of our 2019/20 season. Please visit our website and Facebook page for relevant announcements. 

We very much look forward to seeing you in our concert hall in the near future, sharing our exceptional music-making and the energy that you, our audience, brings to each performance. In the meantime, stay home and stay well.

THE RING CYCLE PART 2 – DIE WALKURE

THE RING CYCLE PART 2 – DIE WALKURE

“The most remarkable element of the performances was the high standard of the orchestral playing, astonishing for a band that had never tackled Wagner’s dramas in sound before.”

Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times

“Maestro van Zweden inspired the heavily reinforced orchestra, eliciting at times spellbinding Wagnerian sweeps.”

“The Hong Kong Phil deserves huge credit for making the effort.”

“Van Zweden and his orchestra deserve maximum credit for successfully sowing the seeds of Wagnerian appreciation in Greater China.”

Philip Eisenbeiss, Interlude

“Triumph for orchestra and singers alike”

Alexis Alrich, South China Morning Post

“… the performance I heard (the first of two) merited the highest praise for nearly all concerned.”

“… the real stars of thie Walkure were conductor Jaap van Zweden and the Hong Kong Philharmonic.”

Robert Markow, Der Neue Merker
