The annual Musicus Fest will take place from 13 November to 11 December 2021. Over the five weekends, Musicus Society’s Artistic Director Trey Lee will be leading international masters and young musicians in various interesting programs held around town. From children and heritage concerts to a “Next Generation Virtuosi” and the grand finale performance, the 2021 Musicus Fest offers a great way to experience classical music in a fun and relaxed atmosphere!
Among the key programmes of Musicus Fest 2021 is the “Next Generation Virtuosi” concert held on 20 November, featuring Winner of Musicus Society 2021 Young Artist Audition and violinist Fan Hiu-sing, and well as veteran pianist Cherry Tsang. Together they will perform a variety of works, from Mozart’s daring Sonata in B-flat and Bach’s monumental Chaconne from Partita No. 2, to Saint-Saëns’ exotic Havanaise and Grieg’s vivacious third Sonata.
The festival will reach its pinnacle at its finale concert, with guest artists from different parts of the world coming together to perform. Elissa Lee, former concertmaster at the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and West German Radio Symphony Orchestra; Hila Karni, internationally renowned cellist from Israel; as well as Richard Wolfe, former principal violist of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra; will be joining Artistic Director Trey Lee in leading a specially formed ensemble featuring Musicus young artists.
In addition to the famous tunes by Rossini, Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky, 16-year-old Menuhin Violin Competition prize-winner Hannah Tam will perform Bach’s Violin Concerto No. 2 in E; while multiple-award-winning violinist Brian Choi will share the stage with the renowned cellist Trey Lee in Vivaldi’s Concerto for Violin and Cello in A.
