"Maturity of musicianship and virtuosity..." - Pianomania on Kseniia Vokhmianina

"The vocal best impression was left by Maria Gessler, who never ceased to be powerful." - Christoph A. Brander, Hünfelder Zeitung

By Candlelight is a new chamber music series presented by The Arts House. This season will feature four performances, each carefully curated by pianist Kseniia Vokhmianina, and celebrates how chamber music is best meant to be experienced: in living rooms and cosy venues, surrounded by family and friends. We invite you to hear live music played by fine chamber musicians, mingle with these artists in an informal setting, as well as share and learn music insights.

Our second concert, Myths and Legends, features Kseniia Vokhmianina and visiting Swiss soprano Maria Gessler in an evening of German lieder that celebrate two female characters often found in classic literature and song – Mignon the dreamer and Lorelei the siren.

This concert is hosted by Dr. Tang Tee Tong.
