GWILT David 紀大衛

 

David Gwilt is a key figure in Hong Kong’s classical music world. His achievements include composing, writing music criticism, presenting radio programmes, conducting and teaching for 25 years (1970 – 1995) at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

 

In 1992, Professor Gwilt was awarded an MBE for services to music and the arts in Hong Kong, in 1996, a Fellowship of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, and in 1998 the title, Emeritus Professor of Music by the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

 

紀大衛在本港的古典音樂界享有重要的地位。 除了作曲以外,他也於報章撰寫樂評,在香港電台主持音樂節目,擔任指揮及曾於香港中文大學任教達二十五年(1970 – 1995) 。

 

紀大衛教授於1992年獲頒英帝國員佐勳章,以表揚他對香港藝術界的貢獻。紀氏並在1996年榮獲香港演藝學院院士名銜。 在1998年他被香港中文大學委任為榮休音樂講座教授,可算是實至名歸。
