Spirit of the Violin

Just 22 and already taking the music world by storm, Canadian violinist Kerson Leong’s fast-rising career has seen him play in the world’s leading venues, from Carnegie to Wigmore. He makes his Singapore debut with one of Schumann’s final compositions, the Violin Concerto - lost to the music world for over 80 years, whose recovery was shrouded in ghostly mysteries and intrigue.

Canada’s next great violinist - Ludwig van Toronto on Kerson Leong
