To commemorate the 50th death anniversary of Francis Poulenc, legendary piano duo Katia and Marielle Labèque will partner the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and Lan Shui in the delightful Concerto for Two Pianos, a work premiered in 1932 to great acclaim. Florent Schmitt’s symphonic poem La tragédie de Salomé is a highly evocative work written in the late-Romantic style; it was dedicated to Stravinsky, who wrote, “I confess that it has given me greater joy than any work I have heard in a long time.
