Violin Maestro: One of the most respected and magnetic musicians in the world, Russian violinist and conductor Dmitry Sitkovestky is known for his flawless violin art, which captures masterfully the composer’s musical creations in his many string works. He has collaborated with fellow music giants including Colin Davis, Mariss Jansons, Neville Marriner, and Yehudi Menuhin, and often performs with the world’s leading orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Cleveland, LA Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus, New York Philharmonic and Philadelphia orchestras.

He will be playing two much-anticipated performances in Hong Kong.
