Musicus Fest
"The career of a professional musician has always encompassed a multitude of roles, going from the concert hall into the teaching studio, and venturing out into the wider community; the musician's work can take place in intimate historic sites as well as vast modern venues. In this spirit, Musicus Fest incorporates a holistic approach to music making and the musicians themselves."
Trey Lee, Artistic Director

Musical Encounters between Hong Kong and the World


Running for the sixth year, Musicus Fest invites its audience on a riveting journey to the uncharted territories of music, where an unprecedented mélange of new sounds and colors awaits at the crossroads of folk, classical and jazz. With Artistic Director Trey Lee at the helm, this year’s Festival presents four exhilarating programs featuring the critically acclaimed Trondheim Soloists, joined by world nyckelharpa champion Emilia Amper and Hong Kong’s premier jazz guitarist Eugene Pao. The Festival also showcases our homegrown talents, who will share the stage with celebrated artists from Romania, Germany, Italy, South Korea and Taiwan.

The Opening Concert introduces the nyckelharpa, a Swedish folk instrument, in a pastiche of Nordic folk tunes par excellence. Highlights of the concert also include the world première of Trey Lee’s new arrangement, in which the cello and electric guitar tango to The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by Piazzolla. Juxtaposing full-bodied works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and J.S. Bach against lighter fares by Ravel and Sarasate, the Chamber Music Gala offers a sumptuous smorgasbord guaranteed to please. The Children's Concert sees the return of Marco Polo in a new set of adventures conjured up via an ingenious blend of Chinese and Western music, drama, dance and dazzling spectacles. The grand Finale pays homage to Norway and its traditions with music by Edvard Grieg, the pride of Norwegians. The concert also celebrates the 50th wedding anniversary of the Norwegian monarchs with the Wedding Cake waltz-caprice by Saint-Saëns, an aptly titled musical confection for the occasion.
