Get­ting in­ti­mate

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

With a stel­lar line-up sure to sate the city’s clas­si­cal mu­sic junkies, the In­ter­na­tional Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val gets the fra­grant har­bour’s 2016 cul­tural cal­en­dar off to a melodic start. Tai­wanese vi­o­lin­ist Choliang Lin (pic­tured) re­turns as artis­tic di­rec­tor of the fes­ti­val, over­see­ing a pro­gramme of world-class con­certs span­ning the gamut of clas­si­cal mu­sic. The fes­ti­val kicks off with a night of per­for­mances that in­clude a Dohnányi ser­e­nade per­formed by a string trio, and a Bartók sonata for two pi­anos and per­cus­sion. Mas­ter­classes, open re­hearsals, talks and lec­tures aug­ment the recitals to pro­vide added insight. Jan­uary 22–27; var­i­ous times, prices and venues;
