Back in January 2022, world-class musicians traveled from all over the world to Hong Kong, many of them enduring a 21 day quarantine, to perform in the Beare’s Premiere Music Festival. After several days of rehearsals, the concert halls were suddenly closed due to the latest COVID wave, and the whole Beare’s Premiere Music Festival had to be cancelled.

Instead of sending the musicians home, we decided to carry on, continue rehearsing and record the Festival repertoire with this special group of musicians. We hired a professional team of video and sound engineers and recorded selected highlights from the Festival programme. And now you can enjoy this one-of-a-kind digital chamber music festival!

Festival videos will be uploaded every Friday. Subscribe to Premiere Performances YouTube channel now!
