Moonfest 艺满中秋 2018 Pipa Virtuoso W...
“Watching the musicians let fly on lutes, fiddles and gongs, as the singers roared through lively ballads recounting folktales and myths, you were swept up by their energy and charisma.” – The New York TimesA musical phenomenon that has taken the US and China by storm, world-renowned pipa virtuoso Wu Man and the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band brings their signature tour to Singapore for the first time!Recognised as a premier pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, the Grammy-nominated Wu Man has carved out a career as a soloist, educator and composer, giving the pipa a new role in traditional and contemporary music. She takes the stage with the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band, proponents of a little-known Chinese folk music genre called lao qiang, recognised in China as an Intangible Cultural Heritage and lauded as “the ancient rock and roll of the East”. Hailing from northwestern China, the band, previously known as the Zhang Family Band, has seen 11 generations of Zhang clan members among its ranks throughout the years.Known for their boisterous and lively concerts, the band’s vocalists and musicians perform with a variety of Chinese traditional instruments including the yueqin, banhu, erhu, lute, fiddle and various percussion instruments, and feature shadow puppetry in parts of their performance.About Wu ManRecognised as the world’s premier pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, Wu Man has carved out a career as a soloist, educator and composer giving her lute-like instrument—which has a history of over 2,000 years in China—a new role in both traditional and contemporary music. Having been brought up in the Pudong School of pipa playing, one of the most prestigious classical styles of Imperial China, Wu is now recognised as an outstanding exponent of the traditional repertoire as well as a leading interpreter of contemporary pipa music by today’s most prominent composers such as Tan Dun, Philip Glass, the late Lou Harrison, Terry Riley, Bright Sheng, Chen Yi and many others. As a principal musician in Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project, Wu has performed throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia with the Silk Road Ensemble, and has also performed as soloist with many of the world’s major orchestras. Wu was also named Musical America’s 2013 Instrumentalist of the Year, marking the first time this prestigious award has been bestowed on a player of a non-Western instrument.

Soul's Joy: SYC Ensemble Singers wi...
Under the cover of night, music and words dream of forests, hills, lilies, snowbanks, rivers. They limn a deep yearning for something lost and faraway—sometimes, the images spiral into love spells, teetering from vengeance to tenderness, alienation to rejoicing. And always, the search for new and sonorous materials to soothe the modern soul. With guest conductor László Nemes, the SYC Ensemble Singers will explore the palette of twentieth-century modernism(s)—Debussy’s Trois Chansons (1909); Ligeti’s Magány (Solitude) (1946) and Éjszaka – Reggel (Night, morning) (1955); and Poulenc’s Un soir de nege (Night of snow) (1944)—while showcasing composers who continue to write music for our time: Máté Bella, Ēriks Ešenvalds, György Orbán and others.

Mosaic Music Series Bennett Bay "...
“Bennett Bay's strength lies in tender melodies—driven by his fascination with the emotional dynamism of post-rock, along with the foundation of imagery purely driven by instrumentation.”– BandwagonBennett Bay, backed by a 17-piece band, presents a concert launching his sophomore full-length album In Memory Of.Marking a significant return to his post-rock roots, the album was conceived as a dedicatory album for a friend of his who passed away five years ago, and is aimed at reconciling notions of grief within those who are experiencing it.In Memory Of follows the journey of a young persona, who has been travelling the world after the loss of his last loved one. He stumbles upon an ordinary town, and it is in this town that his journey out of grief begins, leading to his acceptance of his loss and the assurance he makes to the world around him—that he would live a fulfilled life in the name of the people that have touched his life and he has lost, as well as for the sake of the world around him.Bennett Bay is a musician based in Singapore. Since starting his solo project mid-2015, he has been making his mark on the local arts scene. Following his debut performance at the Esplanade Concourse, Bay has gone on to perform at Red Dot Design Museum, as part of their bi-yearly MAAD Sounds!, and SingJazz Club. Subsequently, he was invited to perform at the inaugural Neon Lights Festival held at the Fort Canning Park, where he was one of four Singapore music headliners among an array of international acts. Bay released his debut single, Komorebi, in April 2016, and launched his debut LP, Compass, in January 2017, accompanied by a 12-piece ensemble. Bay was invited to perform at Electric Picnic in Ireland, where he was featured amongst a number of internationally renowned acts such as Phoenix, Duran Duran, The XX and more. He is currently in the final stages of recording for his second album, and will release it on the 9 September 2018 at a launch show at the Esplanade Recital Studio.Mosaic Associate Artists are exceptional musicians at the forefront of their genres, whom Esplanade has committed to providing tailored, intensive support.

He had to his credit, the innovation of 20 new ragas and a hundreds of compositions.Carnatic Composers is a series of concerts that explore the rich diversity of carnatic music through the works of composers who have defined the genre from the 15th century to the present.

Experimental Cantonese Opera "Farew...
Presented and Produced by West Kowloon Cultural District Xiqu CentreAbout the plotIn the bleak cold of autumn in Gaixia, Xiang Yu, the self-proclaimed “Overlord of Western Chu”, realises he faces defeat.Echoing from all sides, the songs of Western Chu and the whinnying of war horses add to the heavy-hearted mood pointing to his downfall. Under the moonlight, Xiang Yu’s lover, Consort Yu, bids a heartbreaking farewell to her hero before committing suicide with his sword. By the banks of the Wu River, Xiang hears Yu’s voice encouraging him to bide his time and wait to regain power, and sees the spirits of soldiers slain in battle appear before him, urging him to fight till the end.Blending traditional Cantonese opera techniques with contemporary staging and lighting design, this groundbreaking production reinterprets the last moments of a hero caught between reality and illusion before his final battle and ultimate defeat at Gaixia.Creative ideasThis new adaptation of the classic play Farewell My Concubine, merges traditional Cantonese opera principles with innovative new techniques, offering audiences a performance that illustrates the transformation and development of Cantonese opera.The play opens with a prelude that features the entry of the heroic male lead Xiang Yu and a demonstration of traditional Cantonese opera performing skills. Throughout the production, songs are sung in Central Plains Mandarin and Cantonese, with tunes played by a traditional Cantonese opera luo gu (gongs and drums) ensemble. When Xiang takes a farewell drink with his concubine, the performers adopt contemporary bangzi and erhuang singing styles singing to xiaoqu (folk music) in traditional Central Plains Mandarin, and in the final scenes, the depiction of Xiang Yu’s psychological complexity is enhanced by the introduction of contemporary melodies.Respecting tradition and artistic innovation, our aim is to create vibrant productions that transcend traditional frameworks and explore new and original works, taking inspiration and elements from other performing art forms, and forging a new direction for Cantonese opera with an experimental and youthful approach.Artistic TeamProducer: Naomi Chung*Playwright/ Director/ Music Arranger: Keith Lai, Janet WongActors: Keith Lai, Janet Wong, Ng Lap HeiEnsemble Leader: Lee Tik LunPercussion Ensemble Leader: Dai RihuiTechnical Director: Rae Wu** WKCDA Staff
