Introduction

When the King of Instruments meets the Brass Quintet

Organist Anne Lam, Director of Music and Organist at Chung Chi College Chapel, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, is a leading figure in Hong Kong’s organ music circle. She last performed at the HKAF in 2017, playing Saint-Saëns’s Symphony No 3 with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and she has performed worldwide, most recently in mainland China, Japan, New Zealand and Belgium.

As early as the 16th century, composers have already written antiphonal music for brass and organ to be performed in cathedrals. This concert, featuring a brilliant brass quintet from the Hong Kong Philharmonic, demonstrates the uniquely beautiful sound that results in pairing the King of Instruments with its historic partners from the brass section of the orchestra. From the pageantry of Vivaldi and the grandeur of Bach and Vierne to bold modern showpieces by Lutosławski and Hong Kong-born composer Dani Howard, this extraordinary concert spans over three centuries of wonderful music.
