With five of the symphonies, the Violin concerto and four of the piano concertos, Beethoven lovers aren't going to go short in Hong Kong.

One of Hong Kong’s flagship orchestras, Hong Kong Sinfonietta has brought music closer to the community, and achieved significant local and international recognition for its passionate performances and innovative programming. Since 1999, Hong Kong Sinfonietta has collaborated with an illustrious array of international musicians and groups, including in recent years Nicolas Altstaedt, Ilya Gringolts, Martin Helmchen, Sergei Nakariakov, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Krzysztof Penderecki, Fazıl Say, Mariinsky Ballet, English National Ballet, American Ballet Theatre etc. Apart from standard orchestral repertoire, Hong Kong Sinfonietta – as an avid believer of keeping music alive and contemporary – commissions and performs new works every year and ventures into crossover concerts. The orchestra has toured more than 40 cities around the world and appeared in many prominent art and music festivals. In 2018, the orchestra organised the 1 st Hong Kong International Conducting Competition. Since 2002, Hong Kong Sinfonietta has thrived under the direction of Music Director Yip Wing-sie – one of Asia’s most respected conductors. Starting from May 2020, she takes on the new role of Music Director Emeritus. Principal Guest Conductor Christoph Poppen will be responsible for the artistic development of the orchestra before the next Music Director is appointed.
