Familiar Favourites: Tales of Love

Sponsored by

SMRT Corporation


Three pieces, six tales - of love and loyalty. We mark the 150th anniversary of Rossini with his overture to La Cenerentola - Cinderella, that tale of faith and love beloved by all ages. Tchaikovsky’s abundant gift for melody makes him perfectly suited for Sleeping Beauty, a story of patience and protection. Four Korngold scores painting films of love and honour are the musical inspiration for his violin concerto, to be told this night by 2015 Singapore Violin Competition prize winner Richard Lin.
