Premiere Performances of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong role model for recitals and chamber music, is proud to unveil the programme of the 9th Hong Kong International Chamber Music Festival ("HKICMF" or "Chamber Music Festival") , which will be held from 17 - 24 January 2018. Since its launch in 2009, the Chamber Music Festival has forged, through its concerts, an excellent reputation, and has thus become a significant event in the Hong Kong cultural calendar.

This year, five themed nights will be in the programme of the Chamber Music Festival, with ensembles of several international and French musicians performing for the Hong Kong audience. Traditional combinations of strings and piano are to be anticipated, but there will also be music sets including harp, clarinet and flute.

Among the musicians of the Chamber Music Festival are three high-flying French artists who will perform at the festival: Emmanuel Ceysson, the enfant terrible of the harp, Pierre Génisson, the great clarinetist and Patrick Gallois, the famous flutist and conductor.
