25th Singapore International Piano Festival by Singapore Symphony Orchestra, 7-13 June 2018
This year’s celebration brings in six phenomenal virtuoso pianists from across Asia, Europe and the Americas. All six pianists will present varied, colourful programmes in The Singapore International Piano Festival for their 25th anniversary with a variety of works from Mozart, Beethoven, Bartók and more. Not to mention, in this quarter millenial celebration, the long-awaited Singapore debut of the legendary Martha Argerich will also take place. It is definitely the piano event of the year that cannot be missed.
The duo, Miroslav Hristov and Chih-Long Hu, will present some of the most challenging works for violin and piano as part of their East Asian tour. Pieces by Beethoven, Russian composer, Sergei Prokofiev and Ravel will be featured. Catch the duo performing pieces from both the east and west in this one night only performance.
RACH 2 and MASS OF THE CHILDREN will feature Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Piano Concerto that is performed by renowned pianist Albert Tiu with conductor Joshua Tan leading the Asia Virtuosi composed of Asia’s top musicians. Joshua Tan will also conduct John Rutter’s Mass of the Children for the upcoming performance. It will be a delightful performance for all music lovers!
Citizen Dog by The Finger Players, 8 -10 June 2018
After the critically acclaimed Citizen Pig in 2013, the creative duo, Oliver Chong and Liu Xiaoyi return with all-new Citizen Dog. Citizen Dog reflects on real-world problems in a surreal dreamscape while telling a tale of desires in a nightmarish glory that infuses an urban twist into the play inspired by Liaozhai.
Dancer Amrita Lahiri performs a diverse range of kuchipudi dances including classic pieces for this year’s Raga 2018. Kuchipudi dances not only involve footwork, hand gestures and facial expressions but also philosophically, the eternal desire to unite with the divine. This dance drama began as a male-only art form and in today’s context, Amrita will add her own sense of aesthetics to the form for this performance.
