SCO’s former composer-in-residence, Eric Watson, has over the years composed an oeuvre of orchestral pieces, and is one of the pioneer composers who incubated Nanyang music for the Chinese orchestra. This recording will present a selection of his compositions from Dialogue for Solo Tabla and Chinese Orchestra, which is a successful cross-cultural exploration featuring tabla performer Jatinder Singh Bedi. Veteran actor Lim Kay Tong will take centre stage in Eric Watson’s An Independent Note, a significant work commemorating a historic part of Singapore’s history during independence, The Ceilidh, Sea – Source of Life and Mahjong Kakis and Tapestries: Time Dances, which was awarded the first prize at the inaugural Singapore International Competition for Chinese Orchestral Composition 2006.
