Collegium Musicum Hong Kong
Collegium Musicum Hong Kong (CMHK) is a chamber ensemble consisting of some of the most energetic and committed musicians in Hong Kong. Members of the Collegium Musicum share a special congruence of purpose and dexterity with inimitable flair and style, giving rise to the group’s reputation as one of the most exciting chamber ensembles in Hong Kong. The artistic personality of the group can be seen through its creative approach to programming with a rich offering of the 17th and 18th century repertoires alongside new compositions with strong cross-cultural flavors. The ensemble has appeared in the Central Conservatory Music Festival (Beijing), Harlaxton International Chamber Music Festival (UK), and the Hong Kong Arts Festival. Other concert engagements have taken the group to London, Vienna, Salzburg, Leipzig, Munich, Prague, and throughout China. CMHK has also worked with guest artists such as violinist Gottfried von der Goltz, fortepianist Bart van Oort, Carole Cerasi, Baroque specialist Christophe Rousset, organist Douglas O’Neill, harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, pianists Robert Blocker, Melvyn Tan, and pipa master Wu Man. Since 2006, CMHK has collaborated with Beijing’s Central Conservatory of Music in a series of Baroque performances. Some significant Baroque revivals include the complete Messiah in Beijing (2007) and Ningbo (2008), and the first-ever Chinese production of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas (2010) in Beijing, China. In February 2014, the ensemble made its New York debut at Carnegie Hall to critical acclaim.
