This is a unique set of classical chamber music concerts to be held this March at the Esplanade, featuring internationally renowned chamber musicians from Europe and U.S.A. with award-winning homegrown solo female violinist Tee Khoon Tang.
Centered on the monumental German composer Beethoven, this set of 4 concerts will feature cornerstone works Beethoven added to the classical chamber music repertoire in the last years of his life.
Virtuoso homegrown female violinist Tee Khoon Tang will be joined onstage by solo British cellist, Colin Carr; principal cellist of Philharmonic Orchestra Hamburg, Olivia Jeremias; leader of Kammerakademie Potsdam Berlin, Yuki Kasai; solo American pianist Thomas Sauer and violist of the award-winning Daedalus Quartet, Jessica Thompson.
On this journey, our first Evening Concert on 11 March brings us in to Beethoven’s personal world with his penultimate Solo Piano Sonata Op. 110 and his String Quartet Op. 132 in a minor, which slow movement is his song of thanksgiving for having recovered from a near-fatal illness.
Our second Evening Concert on 12 March brings us Beethoven’s final 2 Cello Sonatas Op. 102, presented by the renowned Carr-Sauer duo, and Beethoven’s first late String Quartet Op. 127 where we see his late style and outlook emerging. Audiences may also join us at the pre-concert talk where one can learn more about Beethoven’s craft in his last years, and at our post-concert chat with the artists to learn about their journey as interpreters of Beethoven’s music.
