How apt that the Strings of Prosperity recital falls on Chap Goh Mei, as the programme features the piece String Quartet No. 2 in D Major by Alexander Borodin, who dedicated it to his wife, Ekaterina Protopopova, for their 20th Anniversary. A musical depiction of their love story, you will be led through 4 movements – Allegro, Scherzo, Notturno, Finale – that portray the different parts of their journey from courtship to marriage. A hint: The cello represents the composer, and the first violin his other half.
So, why not wrap up your Chinese New Year celebrations with SYNC Quartet in an evening of beautiful chamber music?
