“A Star-studded Evening of Mozart & Brahms”
Hailed as “the new Viola Hero” (Le Monde), French viola superstar Adrien La Marca is an unstoppable ambassador for the instrument who never fails to amaze. In this concert – the first of two collaborations with Hong Kong Sinfonietta and their Principal Guest Conductor Christoph Poppen during this visit – he will be playing Mozart’s wonderful Sinfonia Concertante alongside Poppen (who will make a rare appearance as a violinist, being a co-founder of the prestigious Cherubini Quartett), while also starring in a chamber orchestra arrangement of Brahms’ sparkling String Quintet No 2 in G.
