Preview: Red Balloon Series – Rhythms, Rites, and Renewals by Singapore Symphony Orchestra
Don’t miss this heart-pounding, eye-opening Asian premiere of Threshold for percussion and orchestra. Written by LA Philharmonic Principal timpanist Joseph Pereira, requiring six timpani and a vast array of percussion instruments ordinary and extraordinary, this performance promises nothing but wonder with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra’s very own Principal Timpanist Christian Schiøler, and guest percussion duo Maraca2. Contemporary music champion Pascal Rophé leads the SSO in his compatriot Jean-Frederic Neuburger’s dawn-inspired reverie, Aube, closing with Stravinsky’s revolutionary Rite of Spring.
Rhythms, Rites and Renewals plays at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 3rd May 2019. Tickets available from SISTIC
