CHEN Xieyang ConductorSuzhou Symphony OrchestraZHU Symphony No. 2, Op. 28PROKOFIEV Suite No. 1 from Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64bisPROKOFIEV Suite No. 2 from Romeo and Juliet, Op. 64terPROKOFIEV Suite No. 3 from Romeo and Juliet, Op. 101On the first leg of its Asian tour, Maestro CHEN Xieyang and the dynamic Suzhou Symphony Orchestra bring to the Singaporean audience a daring programme featuring Prokofiev’s epic re-telling of a universally beloved tale of love and the diametrically powerful realism of Zhu Jian’Er’s sonic world.Under the baton of Maestro CHEN, the SZSO showcases its technical virtuosity and musical maturity in consecutive execution of all three Prokofiev suites of Romeo and Juliet.Educated at the “Tchaikovsky” Conservatory in Moscow and greatly influenced by Soviet composers like Prokofiev, Zhu Jian’Er is regarded as China’s forerunner in the symphonic art. The SZSO pays tribute to him with a poignant rendition of his monumental work, the Symphony No. 2, which is a musical narrative of Chinese history viewed through the prism of Western-style symphony. Completed in 1987, the symphony was a critical success at its premiere in the 13th Shanghai Spring International Music Festival conducted by CHEN Xieyang.One of the most revered musicians in China, CHEN Xieyang has spearheaded the development of symphony orchestra through the generations. With Mo. CHEN at the helm, the musicians of the SZSO hail from 19 countries and territories. Established only in November 2016, the Suzhou Symphony Orchestra has already presented a well-rounded symphonic season, fully implemented chamber music and education outreach series, co-hosted opera and ballet productions, completed several international and domestic tours, and organised international music competitions.

Stay tuned as well for a delightful mix of other pieces that will be featured exclusively on the 7th of June.“...wittily alive… [Tiu's] subtlety and poetic commitment make you listen with new ears.”- Gramophone“Above all his playing exudes a golden tone that sounds as if it was made for 19th century Russia...

Doa Buat Kekasih Concert
There are not many artistes able to bridge generations with their craft.Amongst this small but revered group of artistes, Ramli Sarip is the self-deprecating icon of several generations of music lovers. His fans span races and religions, from Malaysia to Brunei and Singapore to Indonesia.The boy from the kampong who claims humbly to “have very little talent” has grown to become the rocking Datuk. His gravelly voice is emotionally loaded whether he is singing about life lessons, divine providence or about aspects of love. The universality of his song has endeared him to various segments of society, to whom he is fondly known as Papa Rock.In nearly half-a-century in the music industry, Ramli has written and performed songs that explore life and living, evolving his craft along the way. From hard rock, his music may have mellowed as he finds himself walking in step with a greater cause. But while the melodies may be gentler, the messages, like his resolve, are still deeply meaningful.Since his time with Sweet Charity, the hard-rocking band he formed, playing in small gigs before hitting the larger circuits, and then rising to prominence as a solo artist, Ramli has constantly employed a work ethic that promoted the whole rather than the one.This is evident in his concerts, where he fills halls and allows a variety of musicians and styles to support his music, while allowing the individual to shine in their own right.His affable demeanour and willingness to chat over a teh tarik and a curry puff helps to cut across barriers.This approach is particularly helpful when it comes to collaborations with other artistes, which is also key to Ramli’s willingness to explore new facets of music. While many have enjoyed his duets with Ella, Datuk M. Nasir, and Dato’ Sri Siti Nurhaliza, there is one song that has endeared and endured.Doa Buat Kekasih, performed originally with Khadijah Ibrahim in 1988 has been reinterpreted numerous times in the last 30 years. It’s a tribute to the song’s central theme — Pray For Love — that people are constantly looking to connect with each other, and love is a strong bond for humanity.The song about breaking up but retaining friendship is particularly poignant in this day and age of fleeting connections. It obviously resonates with audiences, and is a sing-along favourite at his concerts.Doa Buat Kekasih came to be during the ’80s era of power ballads, in particular the Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes hit Up Where We Belong.In the upcoming Doa Buat Kekasih 30th Anniversary Tour, the song takes on a new perspective. Proceeds form the concert are being donated to Ain Society, a charity that raises funds for cancer patients.While supporting a noble cause, Doa Buat Kekasih is also presenting the opportunity for fans to see the original stars come together after many years to show how friendships and love can transcend time and generations.
