Five outstanding Singapore Chinese Orchestra musicians present acclaimed works by Hu Deng Tiao, the late composer who established the silk string quintet performance format.

Boldly incorporating Western string ensemble playing techniques while retaining the form of the traditional Chinese ensemble, this quintet features five traditional Chinese string instruments—erhu, pipa, yangqin, liuqin and guzheng. Enjoy elegant and lively quintet pieces such as A Joyful Night, Martial Arts in the Farmland, Three Variations on the Yangguan Pass and more.

The SCO Silk String Quintet comprises Lin Hock Siang (erhu), Zhang Li (liuqin/zhongruan), Qu Jian Qing (yangqin), Zhang Yin (pipa) and Xu Hui (guzheng).
