Following their successful debut last August, Singapore’s only professional chamber Orchestra re:Sound continues in their exploration of musical gems written for smaller orchestras. Joining re:Sound this time is renowned pianist, Dennis Lee, in the ground breaking Piano Concerto No. 4 by Beethoven. Also on the program is György Ligeti’s Ramifications, a bold 8-minute exploration of microtonal tuning, dedicated to famed conductor/bassist Serge Koussevitzky and his wife Natalia Koussevitzky, performed by an ensemble of 12 string instruments. Rounding off the program will be one of Mendelssohn’s most iconic Symphonies, the Scottish Symphony. An exhilarating program not to be missed!
