The Metropolitan Festival Orchestra goes on a second outing this coming Saturday with Bridging Frontiers, featuring two concertos on the programme: a Chinese-influenced piece for erhu duo by composer Liu Xi-Jin and Richard Strauss's Horn Concerto no.1. Personally speaking, the latter is a favourite of mine, as it is required playing for every horn player in the music college that I attended, so I'm looking forward to hearing it live again in a professional setting. Here's more information:
Reflecting the Metropolitan Festival Orchestra’s vision to enrich lives through orchestral performances that connect, inspire and entertain, this concert will bring together lovers of both Chinese and Western classical music in a celebration of orchestral music in a uniquely Singapore context, combining the artistry of some of Singapore’s most recognisable and respected classical musicians. Featuring Han Chang-Chou (horn), Ling Hock-Siang (erhu) and Wilson Neo (erhu). Maestro Chan Tze-Law conducts.
