Season preview

Hong Kong Philharmonic enters its 45th season

Whether discovering new works or revisiting classics, the 2018-19 Hong Kong Philharmonic season has plenty to offer.
« A burnished tone brought the full palette of orchestral colours to life, expressive but soothing at the same time. In the end, it was a triumph for Mendelssohn, and for the Hong Kong Phil. »
Alan Yu, Bachtrack
