One of the most anticipated openings on the Hong Kong art scene. After a four-year renovation costing almost a billion Hong Kong dollars, the Museum of Art reopened its doors to the public on the November 30th. The renovation expands the museum’s exhibition space by about 40%, from 7,000 square meters to around 10,000 square meters.
The piano duet became popular in the second half of the 18th century. Among the composers who turned their hands to it are Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, Dvorak, Grieg, Debussy, Stravinsky and Bartok. For establishments or homes that didn’t have the luxury of two pianos, some, including Mozart, Schumann and Brahms, also wrote pieces for four hands on one instrument, as did Schubert with his “Fantasy in F minor”. That’s one of the pieces to be featured in a concert by pianists Warren Lee and Colleen Lee and two percussionists this Friday. Warren and Colleen are here to tell us more.
