Star-studded line-up of musicians to perform in four "Great Music" recitals
*************************************

     Four internationally renowned musicians will be in Hong Kong for a series of long-awaited "Great Music" recitals in September and October.

     The first performance will be a piano recital by Nikolai Demidenko. Invariably acclaimed for his interpretation of Russian repertoire, Demidenko is also highly praised as a Liszt pianist. Celebrating the Liszt anniversary year, he will perform an all-Liszt programme, including the composer's monumental "Sonata in B minor", a challenging milestone in the whole piano repertoire.

     Widely admired for his inspiring and illuminating playing and his poetic sensitivity, Murray Perahia holds a unique position among today's concert pianists and has won numerous prestigious record awards. He will return to Hong Kong with a recital featuring pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann and Chopin, all works Perahia has interpreted to wide acclaim.

     Dubbed the "King of Fiddlers", violinist Itzhak Perlman will meet Hong Kong audiences again after an absence of nine years. With a brilliant career already spanning more than five decades, Perlman is revered for his formidable technique and telling interpretations. Partnered by his regular pianist Rohan De Silva, Perlman will give a programme of three great violin sonatas (Mozart's "Sonata for Violin & Piano in B flat", Beethoven's "Sonata for Violin & Piano No. 7" and Saint-Saëns' "Sonata for Violin & Piano No. 1").
