There’s now a cruise ship called “Piano Land”, and it has just completed its maiden voyage.

So why has Astro Ocean given the ship this rather unusual name? Is the liner specially themed to attract pianists? Are there pianos in every suite?

From December 2019, Piano Land’s home port will be Xiamen, China. And sitting just a few hundred yards offshore is the beautiful island of Kulangsu, which is also known as “Piano Island” or “Piano Land”.

From December 2019, Piano Land’s home port will be Xiamen, China. And sitting just a few hundred yards offshore is the beautiful island of Kulangsu, which is also known as “Piano Island” or “Piano Land”.

People visit Kulangsu not only for the scenic beauty, but for the music. Culture is at the heart of this small island, and over the years Kulangsu has produced a disproportionately large number of world-class musicians.

Road movie set in segregation-era deep south wins top Oscar prize despite controversies surrounding its director and writer

Green Book has won the Oscar for best picture at the 91st Academy Awards.

Based on a real-life road trip through the deep south in the early 1960s, Green Book’s victory proved a considerable upset at the awards, after a night largely marked by predictability.

Playing Schubert on an 1839 fortepiano, the pianist’s typically crisp delivery and focus was bedevilled by the fragile instrument.

At the Wigmore Hall, Andreas Staier was playing a programme of Schubert on a fortepiano made by Johann Baptist Streicher in Vienna in 1839.

Buskers interviewed by TODAY are aware that some members of the public regard them as beggars — a notion they firmly rejected. 

Under the busking scheme, endorsed buskers can collect tips from the public but they cannot actively ask for money. 

"Contrary to popular belief, buskers are not beggars. We actually put in effort to audition for a licence, and put in a lot of effort in our performance."

Happy birthday to our founding Music Director and Conductor Emeritus Choo Hoey!

Maestro Choo turns an auspicious 88 today. An alumnus of Chinese High, Choo learnt the violin with music pioneer Goh Soon Tioe, studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and learnt conducting from Igor Markevitch.

He was Principal Conductor of the Greek National Opera before being invited back to lead Singapore’s first professional western classical orchestra. In his 17-year tenure, he brought the orchestra on nine international tours – across Asia and Europe.

Choo was awarded the Cultural Medallion in 1979, the highest award recognising artistic talent in Singapore. Concertgoers in Singapore last saw the maestro in a 40th anniversary concert this year (Apr 18).

Best wishes from all of us here at the SSO, Maestro!

Have you ever wondered how a composer might have been inspired to write in a particular style? In this carefully curated recital programme, Associate Professor of Piano Albert Tiu explores how Bach and John Field might have influenced Chopin's use of chromaticism and his florid cantilena writing, and in turn, how Chopin might have influenced generations of composers after him - Liszt, Grieg, Faure, Tchaikovsky, Skryabin and Godowsky.
