Gramophone’s 2019 Orchestra of the Year Award
Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra
Shostakovich Piano Concerto
A Musical Realm of Colour and Splendor
The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) offers an opening concert in Prince Mahidol Hall with three stunning works to kick off Hong Kong Week 2023@Bangkok. The HK Phil, which became fully professional in 1974, celebrates its 50th golden anniversary during the 2023/24 season.
In this concert, the HK Phil’s Resident Conductor Lio Kuokman opens the concert with Ravel’s La valse, a work that evokes the glory days of 19th century Vienna, and he concludes with Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, which depicts the exotic tales of A Thousand and One Nights. Renowned Thai pianist Poom Prommachart and the HK Phil principal trumpet Nitiphum Bamrungbanthum will be featured in Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto, a work that features solo trumpet almost as much as the piano.
