Award-winning Hong Kong conductor Wilson Ng
in homecoming performance with the Seoul Philharmonic
Last featured as flute soloist at the 2013 Hong Kong Arts Festival, Wilson Ng is set to make a glorious return as the associate conductor of the Seoul Philharmonic (SPO). A laureate of the Mahler (Bamberg) and Sir Georg Solti (Frankfurt) competitions, among others, Ng made history when he became the youngest-ever conductor of the SPO, the first Asian orchestra to land an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon.
Lauded for his robust and electrifying interpretation of the 20th-century repertoire, Ng will perform with the Moscow-trained and Berlin-based award-winning pianist Dong-Hyek Lim in Scriabin’s Piano Concerto in F minor. Other highlights of the programme include Hindemith’s Mathis de Mahler, an iridescent orchestral triptych inspired by Grünewald’s Isenheim Altarpiece, as well as Blacher’s Paganini Variations, a signature work of the composer and a meticulously crafted “concerto” for orchestra in all but name.
