World-class Philharmonia Quartett Berlin to perform in November


Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The world-renowned Philharmonia Quartett Berlin will give a long-awaited concert for Hong Kong audiences in November.

     The Philharmonia Quartet Berlin was founded in 1985 by the concertmaster, the second violin section leader and musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker, and made its debut at London's Wigmore Hall. The ensemble has since had a critically acclaimed career, establishing itself among the world's premier string quartets with more than 30 years of international concerts and a large and diverse discography.

The Spanish Royal Family invites the ensemble regularly to the Palacio Real to play on the royal Stradivari instruments. The quartet has thrilled audiences throughout the world with its incredible artistry, in particular gaining international attention for its performances of Beethoven and Shostakovich cycles in the Berliner Philharmonie.
