Under the baton of Conductor Emeritus Tsung Yeh, the Singapore Chinese Orchestra will mesmerise all with completely new orchestra works composed by Composer-in-Residence Wang Chenwei. All four works performed will be premiered locally in this concert. Among the four works performed is the world’s first ever virtuosic concerto specially written for the diyin sheng.
Dreams reflect our psyche, while music uplifts our spirits. Titled “For Our Dreams – Wang Chenwei’s Music Showcase”, this entire concert features Singapore local premieres of SCO’s Composer-in-Residence Wang Chenwei works, under the baton of Conductor Emeritus Maestro Tsung Yeh. The opening orchestral piece, For Our Dreams, inspires us to pursue our ambitions. In the virtuosic Diyin-Sheng concerto Taoyuan Wonderland – the first of its kind, soloist Lim Kiong Pin will portray picturesque scenes of Taoyuan, Taiwan. Based on three Macao landmarks, Postcards from Macao presents the city’s unique history and culture infused with Cantonese, Hokkien and European influences. Finally, Percussion Principal Benjamin Boo will lead the concerto Bronze Age of Shang, evoking the elaborate rites and glorious culture of the Shang Dynasty over three millennia ago. Together, let us relive the past, aspire towards the future and strive for our dreams!
