"Brilliant chamber music partner... sowed the motivating spirit, commitment and temperament..." - Maria Adamov Dan (Montenegro) on Kseniia Vokhmianina

“Roberto is an exceptional flautist. He has a well balanced and expressive tone, a wonderful technique and an innate musicality." - Salvador Brotons (composer)

"Katryna Tan has made the regal harp, the instrument of angels, more accessible..." -- Chang Tou Liang, Pianomania

A Tale of Two Cities is a musical bridge that celebrates the 50th anniversary of good diplomatic relations between Spain and Singapore. The works presented connect these two countries through space and time. Works by renowned Spanish composers such as Albéniz, Guridi and Moreno Torroba perfectly match the haunting melodies by Singaporeans Low Shao Ying and Low Shao Suan. These lyrical pieces are a perfect complement to new music by composers like Chen Zhang Yi, Salvador Brotons and Fernando Agüeria, which have been recently recorded in internationally praised albums by Kseniia Vokhmianina (piano), Roberto Álvarez (flute) and Katryna Tan (harp).

By Candlelight is a chamber music series presented by The Arts House. The 2018 season features four performances, each carefully curated by pianist Kseniia Vokhmianina, and celebrates how chamber music is best meant to be experienced: in living rooms and cosy venues, surrounded by family and friends. We invite you to hear live music played by fine chamber musicians, mingle with these artists in an informal setting, as well as share and learn music insights.
