HK Cultural Celebrates Its 30 Anniversary with London Symphony Orchestra Concerts
Why We Recommend it
The London Symphony Orchestra returns to Hong Kong with Music Director Sir Simon Rattle for three concerts featuring local pianists Colleen Lee and Aristo Sham, as well as the Grammy award-winning pianist Emanuel Ax.
Performed under the baton of its Music Director Sir Simon Rattle, the concerts feature Haydn’s Symphony No. 86 in D, Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C, Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 in D, Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Adams’ Harmonielehre, and Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat.
Established in 1904, the London Symphony Orchestra is one of the first self-governing orchestras building on the values of partnership and artistic ownership. The orchestra enjoys long-standing relationships with some of the world’s greatest conductors and soloists, and is recognised as one of the top five orchestras in the world. It performs both contemporary and classic pieces, and is active in recording scores for films including The King’s Speech, The Shape of Water and Indiana Jones.
Live relays of the concerts will be available with free admission at the Piazza of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Auditoria of Tsuen Wan Town Hall, Tuen Mun Town Hall and Yuen. Please click here for more details.
