FRANCE AND HONG KONG EXCHANGE CONCERT 2019

The France-Hong Kong Exchange Concert marks a good musical exchange between Hong Kong Composers' Guild (HKCG) and the Ensemble Télémaque from France. Under this friendly musical exchange arrangement, two Hong Kong composers, namely our Chen Yeung-ping and Lee Kar-tai Phoebus, were invited last year to compose two music pieces for Ensemble Télémaque and premiered in Marseille under the baton of Raoul Lay, their music director. In exchange, Raoul Lay was invited to come to Hong Kong to conduct our local musicians to perform a Hong Kong program, featuring not only the said two commissioned pieces but also other French pieces and HKCG works.
