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.

The APPRECIATE concerts are, mainly, classical concerts featuring guest artists and conductors of world renown.  Apart from performing orchestral masterpieces, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly commissions new works and introduces to audiences works that are rarely heard in Hong Kong.

Music is good for everyone! The LEARN series takes audiences aged 0 to 88 into the world of classical music through specially designed concert series including Good Music for Babies, Good Music for Kids, Short-cut to Classical Music, Know Your Classical Music and HKS McDull Music Project.

In the light-hearted RELAX concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta shares with audiences great music ranging from orchestral favourites to music from movies and musicals.

The ENCOUNTER series offers unique opportunities for audiences to get close to the music and the performers through chamber music concerts, talks, often at unconventional venues or time. These include Good Music This Lunch, Good Music @ The Fringe, Beyond Good Music @ The Fringe, HKS ArtisTree Residency and UpClose Encounters.

Often referred to as “one of the world’s great small orchestras”, Hong Kong Sinfonietta has been invited to go on many TOURS in Europe, Asia, South and North Americas, sharing good music with audiences in over 30 cities.  In 2017/2018, the orchestra will make its début in Germany and perform at festivals in France, Portugal, as well as the Beethoven Easter Festival in Poland.

WHAT ELSE?  Apart from classical concerts, Hong Kong Sinfonietta regularly appears in staged productions by Hong Kong Ballet, Opera Hong Kong and visiting arts groups such as The Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Bolshoi Ballet and Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. This season, Hong Kong Sinfonietta will also host the 1st International Conducting Competition.
