Swire Maestro Series: Stéphane Denève Conducts The Organ Symphony

Saint-Saëns' Organ Symphony is one of the world's best-loved classics, but live in concert it never gets any less thrilling! It's an electrifying showcase for the Hong Kong Cultural Centre's magnificent 8000-pipe organ: you've simply got to hear it for yourself. First, though, the great French organist Olivier Latry puts this colossal instrument through its paces in Poulenc's rip-roaring concerto, and his compatriot Stéphane Denève lights a fire, with a high-octave modern French classic.

The concert runs approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes with an intermission.
