Geneva Camerata (GECA) will be presenting an uncustomary program compiled by their young and talented music director David Greilsammer, with winner of both the Sibelius and Tchaikovsky Competitions, Viktoria Mullova, a highly regarded violinist of exceptional versatility and musical integrity. The audience will hear her virtuosic technique as well as matchless interpretative subtlety on Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64. This will surely be one of the most exciting concerts of the year, with more originality brought by Jonathan Keren’s composition based on Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, and his orchestral arrangement of Debussy’s Fireworks.

Before the concert (6:45 to 7:30pm), conductor David Greilsammer will engage in a conversation with Prof. Daniel Chua (Chairperson, Department of Music, HKU) to share with us his musical career, passion, as well as the unique creative philosophy behind his heralded concert programmes.

Free Admission. Registration required. (Registration will commence on 15 May at 10am)

Location: HKU Grand Hall, LG. 45, Lee Shau Kee Lecture Center, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong
