SSO 37th Anniversary Concert: Ein Heldenleben

SSO 37th Anniversary Concert: Ein Heldenleben

Fri, 29 Jan 2016, 7.30pm
Esplanade Concert Hall

OVERVIEW

“A monstrous act of egotism,” said one contemporary review of Strauss’ tone poem Ein Heldenleben (“A Hero’s Life”), of which the heroic subject was the composer himself, and which also famously features a touchingly affectionate portrait of Strauss’ wife, Pauline. Singaporean conductor Darrell Ang will also direct the orchestra in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 22 featuring pianist Melvyn Tan. The concert opens with music by the 18-year-old Singaporean composer Koh Cheng Jin, who is currently studying at the Juilliard School.
