Description

The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HKPO) is one of Asia’s leading orchestras. Enriching Hong Kong’s cultural life for over a century, the Orchestra has grown into a formidable ensemble of Chinese and international talents in the last three decades, attracting world-class artists to perform on the same stage. HKPO annually touches the lives of 200,000 music lovers through more than 150 performances.

Under the leadership of its internationally renowned conductor Edo de Waart, HKPO continues to scale new heights in musical excellence. The continuing cycle of Mahler symphonies and challenging programming outside the traditional repertoire, have become highly anticipated events as well as musical milestones for the Orchestra. Beethoven’s Fidelio opera-in-concert and Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde are inarguably the major highlights of the 2009/10 season. Many great artists perform with the HKPO, from pianists Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Boris Berezovsky and Paul Lewis, violinist Sarah Chang to cellist Steven Isserlis. The visit of the legendary Gennadi Rozhdestvensky is also an event not to be missed. 

Edo de Waart (born 1 June 1941, Amsterdam) is a Dutch conductor, and the Music Director of both the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.

In 2004, de Waart became artistic director and chief conductor of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. In November 2007, de Waart and the Hong Kong Philharmonic agreed on a contract extension of his tenure to 2012. De Waart has been a guest conductor with the major orchestras throughout the world including the Berlin Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
