SSO Subscription Concert: Cello Escapades


23 Apr 2020, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM




Not one but two concertos fill this musical itinerary starring well-known Singapore-based cellist Qin Li-Wei - and in each trip, paired with a partner. In the eccentric escapades of Don Quixote, the cello hero is accompanied by his sidekick on viola. More unconventional is Zhao Lin’s A Happy Excursion 《逍遥游》, a poetic tour for cello and pipa (Chinese traditional lute) commissioned by the Beijing International Music Festival, which was founded by our distinguished guest conductor Yu Long.
