More than 300 Gold Members of Centaline Club and honorable guests were invited to enjoy the masterful and remarkable performance and felt the charm of the classical music together.
Master performance, out-of-demand tickets
Choi Sown Le is dedicated to focusing on one musician's work in one concert. He has completed two sets of Chopin and Liszt, one set of Schumann’s works. This time, Choi returned with "All Beethoven Programme" and it was his 21st solo recital at the Hong Kong City Hall Concert Hall. Centaline is proud to sponsor the master performance again. The responses from members were overwhelming and tickets were in high demand. As a token of appreciation for Centaline's support, Choi appeared before the performance to take a group photo with Centaline Club President Mr. Danny Ho and other guests.
Interpreting Beethoven's life from classical music
In the evening's performance, Choi Sown Le selected three Beethoven sonatas, including ‘Sonata Op7 in E-flat Major’, ‘Walstein’ and "Appassionata". Sonata Op7 in E-flat major, one of his earlier works, is the second longest and one of the most lyrical piece of his 32 sonatas. The sonata nicknamed Die Verliebte (Love), for its 4th movement is a beautiful and graceful rondo, while the final page is a poignant and unforgettable "Farewell." As for 'Walstein' also known as "Aurora," and the "Appassionata" Sonata were written during Beethoven's 'Eroica’ Symphony period, with grand and majestic music that exudes hope and strength for both the composer's spiritual and idealistic visions of the future and society. Through the breathtaking rhythms of the piano, Choi led the audience into the inner world of Beethoven, a genius composer from the late 18th to the 19th century, to feel the emotions and spirit through the ebb and flow of the strings. The heart-stopping performance won the audience's enthusiastic applause, and the lingering rhythm of the performance was definitely a music feast that touched the heart.
