“Reaching for the divine” The Guardian

“Nelsons produces full-body impact: instead of shattering about your ears, the sound engulfs you. He is a master at controlling dynamics to create a kinetic, fluctuating mass.” The New Yorker

“Their chemistry onstage is unmistakable . . . With disarming sincerity, casual generosity, and boundless optimism, [Nelsons] has released the potential of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.” Musical America

The Boston Symphony Orchestra’s return to Hong Kong after over 25 years is set to be the event in town! Conductor Andris Nelsons, now in his sixth season as music director of the BSO, added two more Grammys (including Best Orchestral Performance) to the orchestra’s long list of accolades in 2019. Maestro Nelsons, Musical America’s 2018 Artist of the Year, remains one of the most sought-after conductors in the international scene today. He opens the 48th HKAF in his Hong Kong debut with works by Bartók, Ravel, Barber, and Dvořák over two consecutive nights, joined by Grammy Award-winning pianist Yefim Bronfman for two concertos by Mozart and Beethoven. A star-studded performance not to be missed.
