Inspired by Rimsky-Korsakov’s overseas adventures and his ability to make an orchestra sing just as he envisioned, Scheherazade is just as enchanting as the courtesan tales from One Thousand and One Nights. Under the baton of Elim Chan, a young female conductor with international star power, the tales’ distinct colours intermingle to the pleasure of musicians and audiences alike.

It may be the middle of the night, but This Midnight Hour by British composer Anna Clyne doesn’t care what the neighbours think. This immersive piece brings the audience along on a wild, melancholic, nocturnal journey. Percussionist Dominique Vleeshouwers performs the stunning Speaking Drums by Hungarian composer Peter Eötvös, where the soloist literally speaks to the snare drum, bell and other instruments with contagious glee.
