After retiring from the leadership role of the New York Philharmonic, Mr. Maazel, now
72 82, continues to conduct with vigour and energy. Now music director of the Munich Philharmonic, he also guest conducts in various orchestras. Last year he conducted a complete Mahler cycle with England’s Philharmonia, touring with the orchestra to England and France for six months.
The ensemble is coming to Hong Kong with Mahler first symphony, a performance received favourable review from The Guardian while the cycle was launched, barely one year ago.
The concert will begin with Haydn’s cello concerto featuring Trey Lee.
