About
香港管弦樂團(港樂)剛完成歐洲五國七個城市的巡演,凱旋而歸。音樂會在倫敦、維也納、蘇黎世、燕豪芬、伯明翰、柏林和阿姆斯特丹舉行,大部份均全場爆滿,觀眾更站立鼓掌,而樂評人對演出皆給予正面評價。於維也納金色大廳的演出更已被錄製,並安排於稍後作電視廣播。港樂的歷史可追溯至1895年,樂團前身中英樂團於該年正式成立,1957年易名為香港管弦樂團,1974年職業化。

港樂獲香港政府慷慨資助,以及首席贊助太古集團、香港賽馬會和其他支持者的長期贊助,成為全職樂團,每年定期舉行古典音樂會、流行音樂會及推出廣泛而全面的教育計劃,並與香港歌劇院和香港藝術節合作演出歌劇。

近年和港樂合作過的指揮家和演奏家包括:阿殊堅納西、寧峰、葛納、郎朗、余隆、李雲迪、剛辭世的馬捷爾、安蘇菲.慕達、王羽佳以及港樂前任音樂總監艾度.迪華特等。

港樂積極推廣華裔作曲家的作品,除了委約新作,更已灌錄由作曲家譚盾和盛宗亮親自指揮其作品的唱片,由拿索斯唱片發行。此外,港樂的社區推廣計劃一向備受好評,每年將音樂帶給數以萬計兒童。

本樂季是梵志登出任港樂音樂總監的第三個樂季。樂團在梵志登的領導下繼續創新里程,眾多新的演出在計劃中,包括演出華格納《尼伯龍的指環》,令港樂成為中港兩地首個演出這齣鉅著的本地樂團。聯篇歌劇《尼伯龍的指環》將以歌劇音樂會形式分四年演出,每年演出一齣。現場錄音將由拿索斯唱片發行。

太古集團自2006年起成為港樂的首席贊助,也是本團歷來最大的企業贊助。太古集團透過支持港樂,致力推廣藝術活動,在藝術水平上精益求精,並推動本地的文化參與和發展,以鞏固香港的國際大都會美譽。

The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra (HK Phil) has recently returned from an extremely successful five-country, seven-city tour of Europe, with concerts in London, Vienna, Zurich, Eindhoven, Birmingham, Berlin and Amsterdam. Most concerts were sold out, there were standing ovations, and the reviews were universally positive. The concert in Vienna’s Musikverein was filmed for future broadcast on TV. With a history stretching back to 1895, when it was formed as the Sino-British Orchestra, the HK Phil was re-named in 1957 and became fully professional in 1974.

Thanks to significant subsidy from the Hong Kong Government and long-term funding from Principal Patron Swire, the Hong Kong Jockey Club and other supporters, the HK Phil now boasts a full-time annual schedule of classical music concerts, pops concerts, an extensive education programme, and collaborations for staged opera with Opera Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Arts Festival.

Conductors and soloists who have recently performed with the orchestra include Vladimir Ashkenazy, Ning Feng, Matthias Goerne, Lang Lang, Yu Long, Yundi Li, the late Lorin Maazel, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Yuja Wang and Edo de Waart, the HK Phil’s previous Music Director.

The HK Phil promotes the work of Hong Kong and Chinese composers through an active commissioning programme, and has released recordings featuring Tan Dun and Bright Sheng, each conducting their own compositions, on the Naxos label. Its acclaimed community engagement programme brings music to ten of thousands of children annually.

This season is Jaap van Zweden’s third as Music Director of the HK Phil. With him, the orchestra is undertaking major expansion and new projects, including the first-ever performances by a Hong Kong or mainland Chinese orchestra of Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung. The four operas are being performed, one a year, in concert and recorded live for the Naxos label.

The Swire Group has been the Principal Patron of the HK Phil since 2006. Through this sponsorship, which is the largest in the orchestra’s history, Swire also endeavours to promote artistic excellence, foster access to classical music and stimulate cultural participation in Hong Kong, and to enhance Hong Kong’s reputation as one of the great cities of the world.

The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra is financially supported by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region
