The Elements (Asia Premiere)
TCHAIKOVSKY｜Symphony no. 4
The HK Phil commences its 50th concert season with the Asia Premiere of The Elements, a collaborative work by five leading American composers. Each composer incorporates their chosen element of earth, water, air, fire and space into the thematic narrative of their work. Commissioned and performed by Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell, this important suite of new works is conducted by Music Director Jaap van Zweden, who concludes the concert with Tchaikovsky’s Symphony no. 4 – a poignant and ultimately triumphant battle with fate.
The concert runs approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes with an intermission.
