5 Apr Update- Change of Programme. Please note that Hisaishi's "Viola Saga" is replaced by another of his compositions, "I Want To Talk To You". Violist Nadia Sirota will no longer perform in this concert.

The world-renowned Japanese composer-conductor Joe Hisaishi returns to Singapore in a performance of four orchestral pieces. The concert begins with La Valse and Boléro, composed by Ravel, one of France’s most influential 20th-century composers. The second half of the program features I Want To Talk To You, a composition of Maestro Hisaishi for string quartet, percussion and string orchestra. The core piece of the second half will be the Singapore premiere of the Spirited Away Suite – based on the Best Animated Feature Film of the 75th Academy Awards, directed by the great filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki. Most anticipated: the emotional piano part to be played by the Maestro himself, creating an exceptional musical journey through Spirited Away.
