A Very Singaporean Celebration - A Bicentennial Tribute

Another Journey Begins!

Debut Concert of the Concordia Quartet

1 February 2020
Ngee Ann Kongsi Theatre @ W!LD RICE


Widely regarded as the pinnacle of chamber music, the intimacy, versatility and brilliance of the string quartet form has captivated audiences and captured the imagination of the greatest composers and musicians over centuries.

Resound Collective proudly presents CONCORDIA QUARTET, Singapore’s new professional string quartet in their debut concert. Four prize-winning musicians – Edward Tan, Kim Kyu Ri, Matthias Östringer and Theophilus Tan – will share three great masterpieces from the string quartet repertoire in the cosy acoustics of the Ngee Ann Kongsi Theatre @ W!LD RICE.

The curtain aptly rises with Haydn’s “Sunrise” Quartet, composed when Haydn had already mastered the genre which he had introduced to the musical world. Also on the programme is Schubert’s Quartettsatz, the single movement for a string quartet that was never completed, yet fully satisfying. Finally Concordia Quartet will bring you the String Quartet no 1, a work that heralds three great periods of string quartet writing that was to come from Beethoven.


Joseph Haydn String Quartet in B-flat major, Op.76/4 (“Sunrise”)
Franz Schubert Quartettsatz in C minor, D.703
Ludwig van Beethoven String Quartet no.1 in F major, Op.18/1
