Promising pianist Volodos debuts in Hong Kong
*********************************************


Pianist Arcadi Volodos will make his Hong Kong debut on November 29 at the Concert Hall, Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

Gramophone magazine described Volodos as "unquestionably among the world's master pianists" and the Los Angeles Times lauded him as "incredibly exciting and has everything". The rising star will play Beethoven's "Piano Sonata No. 12 in A-flat, Op. 26" and "Piano Sonata No. 31 in A-flat, Op. 110"; Liszt's "Les cloches de Geneve" (from Annees de pelerinage, 1ere livre, Suisse) and "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 13" (arranged by Volodos) and works by Scriabin.

Hailed as "a genius of the piano," Arcadi Volodos who was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, has established himself as one of the world's leading pianists. Since his debut in 1996, Volodos has performed with many world-class orchestras including Berlin Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic and San Francisco Symphony Orchestra; and leading conductors Lorin Maazel, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Myung-Whun Chung, Michael Tilson-Thomas, Riccardo Chailly, Valery Gergiev, James Levine, Zubin Mehta and Seiji Ozawa. In recital, Volodos regularly appears at Carnegie Hall New York, Berlin Philharmonie, Salzburg Festival and Theatre des Champs Elysees Paris.

"Encore Series: Piano Recital by Arcadi Volodos " is presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.
