Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances to West Side Story is the perfect piece to set the mood for the weekend, and Joshua Tan opens the concert with an exciting new work by Singaporean composer Zechariah Goh. A ‘body through which the dream flows’ was how John Adams described his Violin Concerto. Listen out for the endless solo voice of the violin creating unique colours in this masterpiece.
