In conjunction with Princely Treasures from the House of Liechtenstein Special Exhibition.

Following last year’s sell-out success, the Music at an Exhibition concert series will return to National Museum of Singapore for its second edition.

Come August and September, the exhibition galleries provide an inspired setting for an array of chamber concerts dedicated to the presentation of the Baroque repertoire. This series of concerts traverses the whole Baroque from its very earliest roots in the music of the Flemish Sweelinck and the Italian Gabrielli, to its final flowering in the great keyboard works of J.S. Bach. It also explores the influence of the Baroque on the great Viennese Classical masters, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert.

Immerse yourself in the exquisite masterpieces from the collection of the Prince of Liechtenstein, before sitting down to experience the compelling virtuosity of accomplished musicians who will perform the familiar favourites as well as some of the rarely heard gems of Baroque music.

Leslie Tan, Er Yenn Chwen and Yang Tien demonstrate the effect the great violin and string makers of Cremona had on music throughout Europe both in the 18th century and beyond. We encounter some of the earliest music ever written for the cello and the first truly virtuoso works for violin.

Er Yenn Chwen performs regularly as soloist and chamber musician. He was Concertmaster of the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra in Columbus, Ohio, and is currently the Director of New Heart Music Ministries (US) and Adjunct Lecturer at the Singapore Bible College.

Leslie Tan is cellist of the internationally-renowned T'ang Quartet, and has performed as both soloist and chamber musician around the world. He has been on the faculty of the Boston University Tanglewood Institute since 2000, and in 2003 he was appointed to the faculty of the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.

Yang Tien studied in London and was the first prize winner in the Open Section at the 1989 National Piano Competition. She has performed in Singapore, the UK, the Netherlands and Hungary, and is currently Head of Music at SOTA.
