Like Nothing Else (II)

4 Nov 2021 (Th), 4:00PM & 8:00 PM Esplanade Recital Studio [90 mins without intermission]

After a successful and rapidly sold out premiere on 30 Sep 2021, Like Nothing Else is back on 4 Nov. Conceived and presented by Dr Robert CASTEELS, Like Nothing Else is a special concert combining songs, dance, poetry and new technology. This extraordinary concert will bring you an aquatic journey from Paris to Rome to Singapore. Water connects each piece of the repertoire in the form of rain, dew, tears and rivers. The music includes well-known masterpieces by Claude Debussy such as the art song C’est l’extase langoureuse and the piano piece Pagodes, interspersed with extracts from Debussy’s own letters. His music truly sounds like nothing else, hence the concert’s title. Like Nothing Else ends with the climatic premiere of Acqua nel Riflesso, the new work composed by Robert CASTEELS for two grand pianos with sound design in real time as well as poetry by Ungaretti and dance.
