Album

«The greatest composer known to me by person and repute».

This was how Joseph Haydn described Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Kit Armstrong leads a group of remarkable musicians in two events celebrating Mozart’s genius. Highlights of the intimate first concert include the sparkling Piano Quartet in G minor and the beautiful Quintet for Piano and Winds, one of the composer’s own favourites among his pieces.

An Evening with Kit Armstrong: Between Organ & Piano

We take you back to Kit Armstrong's organ & piano recital concert at our Grand Auditorium! We had the chance to sit down with him to discuss about his preparation and approach with the Philharmonie's Schuke organ, the particularities of the organ as a composer's instrument, the repertoire as well as the intrinsic relationship between natural sciences and music! In addition to these enlightening insights, you may also relive some fantastic concert excerpts.
