The Anderson & Roe Piano Duo return to Asia after a 2-year hiatus to make their only stops in Singapore and Hong Kong. They will be performing at the Esplanade Concert Hall on 16th June and for the first time in Hong Kong at the Hong Kong City Hall on 18th June.
The Julliard graduates have been described by eminent classical music magazine San Francisco Classical Voice as “the most dynamic duo of this generation”, whilst “any classical music lover owes it to himself to listen to Anderson & Roe” according to the American Record Guide and by Gramophone for “uncanny ensemble prowess and gorgeously calibrated legato phrasing”. They are also a rare breed of musicians who have successfully made classical music transcend another level of artistry with their unique performances and transcriptions, including Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango, George Bizet’s Carmen and John Williams’ Star Wars music. Most recently, they recreated Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off, with some describing their version as even better than the original.
According to The Straits Times, “testament to the popularity of Anderson & Roe was that the line for their autographs was longer than that for Lang Lang’s’ whilst Bachtrack affirms that the duo has “fashioned an entirely new concert experience”. Be prepared to be enthralled for one enchanting night as they bring an all‐new repertoire as well as familiar favourites to audiences this June! The programme includes Rachmaninoff’s Suite No.1, Opus 5, Ravel’s La Valse, Astor Piazzolla’s Oblivion and Libertango as well as their very own feisty and incredible transcriptions of the complete Star Wars Fantasies, never performed in its entirety in Asia.
Don’t miss your only chance to catch the charismatic piano duo in Asia this year!
