Award-winning French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet – who is currently enjoying his three-year residency at Wigmore Hall titled "Autour de Debussy" – brings to Hong Kong a gorgeous recital of Debussy, Chopin and Boulez, the first half of the programme being an intimate yet enthralling celebration of dance, juxtaposing the quintessential French sound of Debussy with the Romantic lyricism of Chopin, and the second half featuring monumental contemporary composer Pierre Boulez's Notations VII, as well as Book One from Debussy’s timeless Études.
