Singapore Symphony Orchestra - A musical kaleidoscope



D and I went to check out the SSO today at the Victoria Concert Hall in Singapore. The main theme of the performance was to show how a piece of music stands out simply by the way it is orchestrated by the composer.

The programme is shown below and one of the highlights was a harp solo. Did you know that a harp can cost around $40k! My favourite piece of music from the afternoon was Claire de Lune by Debussy (it was orchestral but I have shared the piano version above)
