Programme includes excerpts from symphonies by Haydn:

Symphony No 6 in D, “Le Matin”
Symphony No 45 in F-sharp minor, “Farewell”
Symphony No 60 in C, “Il Distratto”
Symphony No 85 in B-flat, “La Reine”
Symphony No 94 in G, “Surprise”
Symphony No 101 in D, “The Clock”
Symphony No 104 in D, “London”

Here is the man who is now known as “Father of the Symphony” and “Father of the String Quartet”; who wrote the national anthem of Germany (which was also the Austrian national anthem from late 18th century until the end of World War II); who was once the idol of Beethoven, Brahms and many great composers who followed in his footsteps. But what actually brought Haydn to such status? Music Director Yip Wing-sie will share his success story with you.

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.
