The Composers Society of Singapore (CSS) is happy to learn that CSS member Wang Chenwei has been asked to compose the set pieces for the National Piano and Violin Competition this year. Participants in the Artist and Senior categories for both violin and piano must perform the set piece in the semi-finals, in addition to their full solo programme and concertos.
Already finished, Wang Chenwei’s works are based on four festivals of Singapore in celebration of the Bicentennial (for the following categories):
Thaipusam (for violin senior)
Hari Raya (for violin artist)
Mid-Autumn Festival (for piano senior)
National Day (for piano artist)
The National Piano and Violin Competition is Singapore’s oldest and most prestigious music competition. This 12th edition happens on 30 Nov 2019 (Sa) – 8 Dec 2019 (Su).
