Israeli pianist Nabeel Hayek debuts in Hong Kong E-mail

Sixteen-year old Israeli pianist Nabeel Hayek gave a truly inspiring performance at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts Concert Hall on 16 November.

The concert was a co-presentation of the Consulate General of Israel in Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA), together with Michel and Martine Jospé.

In attendance at the special performance were Ahuva Spieler, Israel’s Consul General to Hong Kong; Eric Berti, France’s Consul General to Hong Kong, and Professor Adrian Walter, Director of the HKAPA.

The evening’s programme included pieces by Gluck, Brahms, Rachmaninoff and Beethoven. Hayek was accompanied on stage by Thai violinist Korn Roongruangchai and cellist Thomas Hung Ka-yeung from Hong Kong.

Hayek was the 2016 winner of the Solange Jospé Prize, the first prize in the Voice of Music “Young Artists Competition”, Jerusalem. He was one of the youngest artists, and the first-ever Israeli Christian Arab, to win the competition.
