Many lives were lost during World War One and it has been 100 years since. In this edition of MasterWorks, ADDO Arts Company pays memoriam to the centennial of the end of World War One with works by brilliant composers and literati who lived through this turmoil and who had penned their voices onto paper to commemorate the loss of their comrades.

Based on Rudyard Kipling’s Recessional, ADDO is privileged to present Lest We Forget - a colourful evening of Kelly, Ravel, Prokofiev and Debussy. Performing Prokofiev’s Left Hand Piano Concerto is the lovely concert pianist Cecilia Ratna, a student of the late Edmund Battersby, while juxtaposed in the programme is the winning work at ADDO’s Have You Experienced? Composition Laboratory and Competition for Emerging Composers 2017 by local composer Gu Wei, whose international presence is unfolding. This lab and competition is the latest initiative of the ADDO Arts Company to commission and promotes new works specifically for chamber orchestra by emerging composers. The programme also includes readings of selected poems by storyteller Rosemarie Somaiah of the Asian Storytelling Network.
