Seven performances, curated by seven HK Phil Principals.


The HK Phil proudly presents seven recitals by the orchestra’s Principal Oboe Michael Wilson, Principal Viola Andrew Ling, Co-Principal Trumpet Christopher Moyse, Principal Clarinet Andrew Simon, Principal Bassoon Benjamin Moermond, Principal Flute Megan Sterling, and Principal Timpani James Boznos.


In this special video series, our Principals share their personal musical pleasures in diverse genres with the audience. We bring you an extraordinary journey through different sections of the orchestra – strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. Immerse yourself in music and meet our Principals! The videos will be premiered every other Tuesday on HK Phil’s online platforms. Get ready to be dazzled by these special performances!


Our Principal Oboe Michael Wilson and Hong Kong pianist Rachel Cheung present two pieces by Schumann, written in 1849. The first, Drei Romanzen (“Three Romances”), was written in just three days for the composer’s wife as a Christmas present, and is Schumann’s only piece for oboe and piano. The second, Drei Fantasiestücke (“Three Fantasy Pieces”), was actually written for clarinet and piano, but in this performance, Michael and Rachel will perform the oboe and piano version.
