Harpsichord – Stephen HUNG
Stephen Hung is primarily a pianist with a keen interest in J. S. Bach’s music and Baroque music in general. He studied with Colin Stone and Daniel-Ben Pienaar at London’s Royal Academy of Music and also had lessons on the harpsichord and the organ there. Since graduating in 2013, he has transcribed and published a collection of Bach’s organ, choral and violin pieces for the piano. Hung performs regularly, both as a soloist and as a member of chamber music groups including the TimeCrafters, the Early Music Society of Hong Kong, and Song is Being. Some notable performances include Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time with the TimeCrafters at the University of Hong Kong’s Museum and Art Gallery in May 2019, and a concert at the Musica Antiqua Takamatsu in Japan with Song is Being in February 2019, and the complete Well-Tempered Clavier in July 2022. Besides traditional recitals and concerts, Hung has been exploring other formats of performance, including jukebox concerts, concerts synchronised with video animations (collaborating with the visual-artist Oychir), and collaborative projects with painters and photographers.
