For World Music Day 2021, French virtuosos & diplomats across three continents gather virtually to celebrate the Camille Saint-Saëns Commemorative Year by playing his renowned piece “The Swan”. Together they aim at promoting the revival of the French culture abroad after months of the pandemic crisis.
Gautier Capuçon last visited Singapore in October 2019 where he performed the Schumann’s Cello Concerto with Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO) for the opening of vOilah! France Singapore Festival 2019. Jean-Yves Thibaudet was also in Singapore in October 2017 where he performed the Saint-Saëns Fifth Piano Concerto with SSO.
As Singapore reopens, we hope to welcome both of the them again in Singapore in the near future.
Watch the performance here.
