Premiere Performances of Hong Kong (Premiere Performances) announces today their 2021 Recital Series with an exciting line-up of classical music superstars. The Premiere Performances presents two exciting Hong Kong debuts next season. Celebrated cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and his esteemed pianist sister Isata Kanneh-Mason make their long-awaited début next October. Sheku grabbed international attention after his phenomenal performance at the Royal Wedding. In April, the young Gramophone Artist Camille Thomas will also make her Hong Kong début with lyrical repertoire of Debussy, Ravel and Chopin.

Premiere Performances also hosts the celebrated returns of some of the best-loved artists. After her sold-out concert “In War & Peace” which opened the Beare’s Premiere Music Festival in 2019, opera superstar Joyce DiDonato returns with her Grammy award winning programme “Songplay” — an exquisite blend of ‘jazzed-up’ vocal classics, tango and improvised jazz. Acclaimed Korean pianist Sunwook Kim also returns next November with a solo recital. Hailed by the The Times as “Passion, precision, warmth, a gold blend”, the exceptional Jerusalem Quartet returns next May with an all-Beethoven programme.

Premiere Performances is also thrilled to announce the return of some 2020 cancelled programmes during the pandemic. “Guitar Hero” (BBC Music Magazine) Miloš Karadaglić delights the Hong Kong audiences with a repertoire spanning from the Baroque period to the Beatles. Adventurous pianist David Greilsammer is also bringing back “Scarlatti/Cage”, a programme named by The New York Times as “One of Ten Most Important Musical Events of the Year”.

In view of the unforeseeable circumstances imposed by the pandemic, Premiere Performances has decided not to provide early bird subscription services for the upcoming recital season. Ticketing details of each programme in the 2021 Recital Series will be announced individually at a later time. Premiere Performances invites audiences to follow its announcements on social media, website ( and on newsletters.
