  • Alina Ibragimova & Cédric Tiberghien

When speaking about the partnership of Russian violinist Alina Ibragimova and French pianist Cédric Tiberghien, The Times of London declared: “both of these players have the potential to conquer the world."

There's only one way to find out, and that's to catch this highly-hyped duo live during their one-night-only swing through town, when they'll play a selection of three Beethoven violin sonatas, including the monumental “Kreutzer." So get a ticket. And while you're at it, Wikipedia "brown note." You'll thank me.

The Hong Kong Welsh Male Voice Choir is here to prove that acapella isn't all tweeting falsetto.

The Viennese violinist Benjamin Schmid takes to the stage with the HK Sinfonietta this November. He's been called "the most valuable of today's golden-age violinists," which is a pretty mixed metaphor. Anyway, he'll be playing two of Mozart's best-known violin concertos: the second and fifth, as well as the Polish composer Lutosławski's "Little Suite" and Bartók's "Dance Suite." Fellow violinists might want to borrow a string from Schmid...
