MAY CHAMBER SERIES

Published on 11 April 2019


Death and the Maiden

Featuring Strings of the SSO, including Chen Da Wei, Nikolai Koval, Guan Qi, Wang Zihao (Schubert), and Chan Yoong-Han, Zhang Si Jing, Gu Bing Jie, Ng Pei-Sian, Yang Zheng Yi (Dvořák)

Experience the heartfelt inspiration of Schubert’s final years in Death and the Maiden, evocatively filled with deep sorrow and stark drama. The slow movement from his Piano Trio, D. 929, exudes bleak, inevitable loss amidst its inexorable momentum. This attractive programme ends with Dvořák’s infrequently heard Quintet No. 2 for string quartet and double bass, a work full of his melodic trademarks, signifying his burgeoning maturity as one of Czech people’s greatest composers.

Temptation of the Saintly Pot

Featuring Woodwinds of the SSO, including Miao Shanshan, Pan Yun, Li Xin and Wang Xiaoke.

A troupe of zany kitchen utensils narrate a canteen cantilena in Martinů’s jazz ballet, La revue de cuisine, written during his time in Paris. Enjoy a delectable evening featuring the SSO woodwinds in this completely French-inspired programme. Relish the pleasant wit of Jean Françaix’s Dixtuor, and enjoy the sparkling inspiration of Madame Louise Farrenc, whose music was praised by Joseph Joachim and Schumann.

Brass Ensemble of the SSO

Put on your shades as the Brass Ensemble of the Singapore Symphony Orchestra shine in an eye-opening recital of brazen fanfare and clarion chorales. Prepare for a spectacular array of pomp and pageantry as they present music for brass from the Renaissance to the 20th century. Sound the trumpet in this thrilling procession of thunder, oomph and brass bizarre.
