Three Romantic Pieces
Three Romances, Op 94
Three Romances, Op 22 (Transcribed for Oboe)
Born in a family of accomplished string players, Gabriel Pidoux forged his own path as an up-and-coming oboist praised for his exquisite tone and sincere expression, winning the “Révélation Soliste Instrumental” award at the prestigious Victoires de la Musique Classique in 2020. This recital alongside pianist Colleen Lee marks his Hong Kong début where he will deliver a gorgeous programme of works surrounding the theme of “Romance”, including timeless favourites such as the Three Romances of both Schumann and Clara Schumann, as well as Wallner’s Three Romantic Pieces and Marina Dranishnikova’s Poème, which promise to be captivating discoveries.
Pidoux will also appear with Hong Kong Sinfonietta in concert on 23 Jun under the baton of Jason Lai, sharing his mesmerising rendition of Vaughan Williams’ evocative Oboe Concerto rarely heard in Hong Kong.
