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.

The evolution of the cello from a simple bass line instrument to one capable of singing great melodies of extreme beauty is traced in this concert of music by Bach, Boccherini and Beethoven.

Bernard Lanskey has performed throughout Australia, Great Britain and in most European countries, working principally with string players and singers in chamber music, mixed recital and lecture-recital combinations. He is currently Director of the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.

Li-Wei Qin taught at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester before joining the teaching staff at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory. He is a regular guest at London’s Wigmore Hall and recently made highly successful debuts at New York's Lincoln Centre, San Francisco and Washington.
