The Taiwan Philharmonic shows its ‘natural affinity’ with this impressionistic music, a sea journey filled with light, waves and gorgeous panoramas’ (Classical Voice). Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto no.5 is playful, virtuoso and lively. It seems to be forgotten for a long time, but it has been on the rise recently. With its Egyptian motives, an irresistible piece of music indeed. The American Kit Armstrong is an ‘astounding phenomenon’ (Süddeutsche Zeitung); ‘remarkable’, says the New York Times.
We invite you to join us for a free introduction prior to the concert. The introduction will be presented by Bart de Graaf in the small hall, and will start at 19:30.
To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
