Due to unforeseen circumstances, Prof. Daniel Chua is not able to host this talk. However, we are delighted that Dr. Giorgio Biancorosso, also from HKU’s Department of Music, will take the place to have a dialogue with pianist Konstantin Lifschitz. They will discuss and explore different aspects of 'Performing Beethoven'. The event will include demonstrations by Mr. Lifschitz on the piano.
