Echoes of Fire and Water

Ensemble Æquilibrium (Singapore)

In this contemporary concert, Echoes of Fire and Water explores our tenuous relationship with nature, the eternal cycle of destruction and renewal and our ultimate responsibility to sustain the planet for future generations.  

The concert’s centrepiece features George Crumb’s haunting Eleven Echoes of Autumn, conjuring up a fragmented schism in the order of the world. Reflecting the themes of dissolution and regenerationthe programme also features works by Kaija Saariaho, Toru Takemitsu and Chen Zhangyi. 

Ensemble Æquilibrium is a new music ensemble made up of the top contemporary performers in Singapore. Founded in 2020, Ensemble Æquilibrium is committed in delivering quality performances of the finest 20th & 21st century masterworks, championing and commissioning works by Asian composers, cultivating new music audiences within the region, and seeking meaningful collaborations across disciplines and genres in pursuit of new artistic grounds. The ensemble currently consists of members from Singapore, Switzerland and Italy.
