2017法國五月藝術節:法國廣播愛樂樂團 Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France

June 2 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Direction Mikko Franck // Cello Trey Lee // Piano Dmitry Masleev
Violin Svetlin Roussev



Celebrating Le French May’s Silver Jubilee, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra) makes its Hong Kong debut, under the music direction of Mikko Franck. They are joined by a trio of young soloists for Beethoven’s ecstatic Triple Concerto, before bringing the authentic sound of France to Hong Kong, in Debussy’s famous evocation of The sea and Ravel’s exquisite musical telling of fairy tales in his Suite Mother Goose.

Founded in 1937, from the outset the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France has collaborated with distinguished conductors such as André Cluytens, Rafael Kubelik, Wolfgang Sawallisch and composers such as Aaron Copland, Heitor Villa Lobos and Pierre Boulez. In recent times Valery Gergiev, Gustavo Dudamel and
Esa-Pekka Salonen have followed in that tradition, alongside the orchestra’s music directors Emmanuel Krivine, Marek Janowski, Myung-Whun Chung and now Mikko Frank. Since 2007, the Orchestra has been a UNICEF ambassador.

In the Beethoven’s Triple Concerto, joining the Orchestra’s concertmaster Svetlin Roussev are homegrown cello virtuoso Trey Lee and the latest winner of the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in 2015, Dmitry Masleev.
