Hong Kong Sinfonietta Concertmaster James Cuddeford takes you on a music journey across centuries and countries. In these four concerts, James has programmed chamber music rarely-heard on the concert stage in Hong Kong, including works by Bach, Haydn, Bartók, and notable contemporary composers such as Ligeti and Cage. He will also perform two distinctive compositions of his teachers, Kurtág and Stockhausen, whom he has close connections with.

Come along, have a drink and enjoy a special evening with James at the Fringe Dairy!


Mak Su-yin will provide the words, some semi-improvised, in these works involving speaker. The texts range from the humorous, as in Alan Ridout’s charming work, to the autobiographical depictions of the star signs in Stockhausen’s magical ‘Zodiac’.”     — James C.
