The Iceman Cometh
Wednesday,  Dec 13,2017,18:16 (GMT+7)
The first review I ever wrote ffor the Saigon Times was of the Sibelius’s Violin Concerto performed by the 16-year-old Singaporean violinist Gabriel Ng. That was in 2010, and the event, apart from the young prodigy’s exceptional performance, was marked by Ng joining the first violins for the item that followed, Elgar’s Enigma Variations.
An awesome Nutcracker once again
Tuesday,  Dec 12,2017,18:37 (GMT+7)
There are many reasons why Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker makes such a compelling entertainment. There’s the Christmas element, of course, a Christmas Eve party followed by a scene in a veritable winter wonderland. Then there’s the color and the exoticism – dances from supposedly distant lands and flights of imagination among falling snowflakes. Variety, too, plays its part, with social party dances alternating with mythic figures out of a land of dreams. All these add up to making Nutcracker an unfailing attraction worldwide.

Basically, they are pieces for orchestra (or just string orchestra) with one or more solo instrumentalists, though the word can also refer simply to a piece of music for a collection of instruments, in effect all soloists (such as in Bach’s six Brandenburg Concertos).
