"Over two evenings, András Schiff and the OAE made Brahms and Schumann sound like new". Highest praise! twitter.com/ObsNewReview/s…
Today members of the Orchestra are flying out to Singapore for a seven date tour of South East Asia, including our first ever concerts in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, the Philippines, Thailand and Brunei. We’ll also be returning to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where we played with Iván Fischer and Steven Isserlis in 2006.
It’s all part of Toyota Classics, an annual classical music tour Toyota has promoted since 1990 to support charities across Asia.
Steven Devine is directing a programme featuring music by Mozart and popular Baroque repertoire, including selections from Handel’s Water Music and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. We’ll also be joined by guest artists in many of the countries we’re visiting.
It’s an exciting adventure for us to take our music to new audiences in so many new locations.
