The Yoshie and Takashi Duo played superbly. Their high voltage performance combined funky soul and pianistic fireworks with equal enthusiasm.
Classical music is the most powerful shortcut to nurture a child's "empathy" and "imagination".
With no lyrics in classical music, pianists of any calibre can imaginatively picture sceneries and feel the "sound" of the masterpieces created by Chopin or Rachmaninoff. Children will learn through the fun of music, while adults enhance musical knowledge and delve deeper into the depths of music.
From Japan, Pianoduo DUOR Takashi and Yoshie's four-hands debut concert in Singapore is a rare phenomenon. Both pianists merge their minds and bodies as a musical whole and are challenged to perform spontaneously.
They present a range of masterpieces from the Romantic period (with works by Grieg and Chopin) to the early Contemporary period (with works by Rachmaninov). Among many other pieces, there will also be a premiere of a beautiful piece by Japanese composer Akira Miyoshi.
Prepared to be dazzled as the artists showcase the breathtaking sound range and effects that the C.Bechstein D 282 Concert grand piano can produce. Experience the majestic power of two concert grand pianos and savour the intricateness and subtleness they can offer.
The Love & Hope concert by Pianoduo DUOR will be a uniquely rewarding concert experience to wrap yourself in a sublime and imaginative world featuring great composers' works.
