Beethoven Brillante—Commemoration of the 190th Anniversary of the Death of Beethoven


Arts at HSMC brought on campus a thematically classical evening with “Beethoven Brillante—Commemoration of the 190th Anniversary of the Death of Beethoven”. The concert attracted an audience of over 160 guests, students and staff. The distinguished musicians included pianists Dr Karl Lo, Ms Henrika Wong and Ms Joycelyn Cheung, violinist Ms Alice Tang and cellist Mr Edgar Hung, who played Beethoven’s masterpieces and paid tribute to the great composer at the Auditorium on 11 April 2017.

 

Before the performances, Dr Lo gave a brief yet intriguing introduction to Beethoven’s music with demos illustrating the composer’s style as compared to other great masters. Three Beethoven’s all-time masterpieces—“The Tempest”, “Moonlight” and “Gassenhauer Trio” were then played in this 60-minute concert.  The audience was not only captivated by the delicate selection of Beethoven’s music, but also the exceptional talent of the five musicians.
