Lorin Maazel coming with Philharmonia in March

Lorin Maazel will return to Hong Kong with the Philharmonia in a concert with Haydn and Mahler on March 31.

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.

Also noteworthy: the concert will start at 2:30pm.

    I saw Maazel conduct the
    Philharmonia in Mahler’s Seventh in London last year. It was a very
    quirky performance, strange tempi and odd changes that no one else does.
    The orchestra played beautifully but I have to say I thought it was a
    glorious failure, and the failure entirely due to Maazel’s
    interpretation.
