World Cultures Festival 2019: “An Evening with Nordic Composers”
22 October - 23 October
Nordic Café presents “An Evening with Nordic Composers” Chamber Concert on 22 and 23 October at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Studio Theatre.
Chamber music was created for intimate settings, providing audiences with a refreshingly close encounter with performers and the works they play. In “An Evening with Nordic Composers”, you can revisit the experience in a novel concert, where local rising stars interpret 19th and 20th-century masterpieces from five Nordic composers in a specially prepared home-like setting. Talented musicians from the region will perform selected repertoires from: Sibelius (Finland), Leifs (Iceland), Nielsen (Denmark), Grieg (Norway) and Stenhammar (Sweden). There’ll also be the chance to chat to the artists in person at the meet-the-artist sessions after each performance.
