Celebrating Le French May’s Silver Jubilee, we invite the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra) to come to Hong Kong, 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.

(The sea, three symphonic sketches for orchestra)
De l’aube à midi sur la mer (From dawn to noon on the sea)
Jeux de vagues (Play of the Waves)
Dialogue du vent et de la mer (Dialogue of the wind and the sea)

Ravel   Ma mère l’Oye (Mother Goose) Suite

Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France

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 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 home-grown cello virtuoso Trey Lee and the latest winner of the International Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in 2015, Dmitry Masleev.
