Calling all music lovers! Catch a glimpse of Singapore¡¯s growing arts scene at Prelude, a free piano concert to be held on 4 April 2006 at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA).

Aimed to increase public awareness of local music education, this concert will showcase the talents of promising young pianists in Singapore. Whether one desires to get more acquainted with the music scene or simply to enjoy a delightful musical evening, this performance is not to be missed. Listeners will also be able to enjoy the fine acoustics of the Lee Foundation Theatre at NAFA Campus 3.

Performers include top final-year students and upcoming junior talents, many of whom are under scholarships and have won accolades in competitions such as the National Piano & Violin Competition. They will be playing representative works of well-known composers, including Bach and Beethoven, as well as interesting less-heard pieces like Ganz¡¯s Grand Galop de Concert for six hands and Tchaikovsky¡¯s Doumka. Watch out for the dazzling virtuosic display in Liszt¡¯s Hungarian Rhapsodies and be astounded by the ferocious opening movement of Brahms¡¯ Sonata No.2 in f# minor. With such a range of musical expressions, this concert will surely provide the audience with the necessary ingredients to spice up their regular week.

Says Mr Richard Adams, Head of the NAFA Music Department: "We have many talented piano students and it is important to share their joy of music with the community."
