VENUE : Pentas 2, KLPAC
"Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass.
The finger points look through like rosy blooms.
Your eyes smile peace."
(Silent Noon - text by Rossetti, music by Vaughan Williams)
An evening of songs, lieder and chansons dedicated to lovers.
From the soaring love of Zeus for Ganymede, to the musings of an aging Nightclub Proprietress, these little melodic gems paint unique vignettes of lovers in their varied forms and guises.
"Ah, at your breast
I lie and languish,
and your flowers and your grass
press themselves to my heart."
(Ganymed - German lyrics by Goethe, music by Schubert)
With songs by Schubert, Hahn, Poulenc, Britten, Rorem, Copland, Barber, Weill, Bolcom, Quilter, Vaughan Williams, and Dring, this intimate soiree will feature Malaysian tenor, Peter Ong, accompanied by renowned Singaporean pianist, Shane Thio.
