Intimacy of Creativity

Hailed by the Financial Times as a festival with a “finely hewn sense of craft,” Intimacy of Creativity: Composers Meet Performers in Hong Kong (IC) returns for another innovative season from April 22 to May 5, 2019.

Intimacy of Creativity explores the creative process through public, in-depth Open Discussions on the campus of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), which presents the festival. The revised compositions are formally presented at Preview Concerts on the campus of HKUST, and World Premiere Concerts are held in renowned venues in downtown Hong Kong.

The 2019 season launches a new two-year partnership between HKUST and the Curtis Institute of Music.
