Celebrating Le French May’s Silver Jubilee, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra) makes its Hong Kong debut, under the music direction of Mikko Franck. They are joined by a trio of young soloists for Beethoven’s ecstatic Triple Concerto, before bringing the authentic sound of France to Hong Kong, in Debussy’s famous evocation of The sea and Ravel’s exquisite musical telling of fairy tales in his Suite Mother Goose.
