‘The Berliner Philharmoniker’s clarity and definition are immaculate’   Gramophone
 

Acclaimed as one of the best orchestras in the world, the illustrious Berliner Philharmoniker will perform in Hong Kong for two concerts.

 

Under the leadership of Sir Simon Rattle, the Orchestra ushers into an innovative era with vibrant concert programmes, wide-reaching education initiatives with their partner Deutsche Bank and a state-of-the-art Digital Concert Hall which streams concerts at Berlin’s Philharmonie to the internet.  Sir Simon is going to conclude his tenure as the Orchestra’s Chief Conductor in 2018, a position he has succeeded from Claudio Abbado since 2002.

 

In the two concerts, the Berliner Philharmoniker will perform monumental symphonic works by Richard Strauss, Brahms, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov.  Seong-Jin Cho will perform Ravel‘s Piano Concerto in G on the first evening, on the second the Orchestra will perform a work composed by eminent Korean composer Unsuk Chin especially for the Orchestra.

10 November (Fri) 20:00

Richard Strauss

Don Juan, Op. 20

Ravel

Piano Concerto in G (Piano: Seong-Jin Cho)

Brahms

Symphony No. 4 in E Minor, Op. 98

 

11 November (Sat) 17:00

Stravinsky

Petrushka (Revised Version from 1947)

Unsuk Chin

As the most anticipated music event in 2017, the two upcoming concerts given by the Berliner Philharmoniker will be broadcast live in Tsim Sha Tsui, Sha Tin and Yuen Long from the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall.  Live relays of concerts to local audience will be shown in three locations simultaneously for the first time.  Come and enjoy this spectacular event with friends and families for free.
