Canzone Trio to perform in May
The trio, formed by Tam Ka-kit (piano), Fan Ting (violin) and Ray Wang (cello), will perform, among others, Tchaikovsky's "The Seasons" Op. 37b, arranged for piano trio by Alexander Goedicke (Hong Kong Premiere); Pärt's Mozart-Adagio for violin, cello and piano; and Dvořák's Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90, "Dumky".
Established in 1987 by three distinguished Hong Kong artists, Canzone Trio have inspired audiences with their masterful skills. Their concert appearances have led them across the Mainland, Canada and the United States, and they have performed in festivals such as the Hong Kong Arts Festival, the Music in the Summer Air Festival in Shanghai and more.
In addition to performing traditional repertoire, Canzone Trio are also avid interpreters of contemporary music. Supporting the development of modern classical works, they collaborated with the Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong to commission renowned Hong Kong composers Chan Wing-wah and Richard Tsang respectively for "Continuity" in 1989 and "Emergence" for their Carnegie Hall debut in 1993.
Beyond their success on stage, the trio are also devoted teachers who have worked with students at the Royal Northern College of Music in the United Kingdom, the Queensland Conservatorium of Music in Australia, the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore, the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and major music conservatories throughout the Mainland.
To mark Canzone Trio's 30th anniversary, a "Reunion Concert Series" was launched in 2018 to celebrate their youthful encounter, accomplished musicianship and lifelong friendship. The coming concert is part of the series.
"City Hall Virtuosi Series: Canzone Trio" will be held at 8pm on May 11 (Saturday) at the Concert Hall of Hong Kong City Hall.
