新山古典音乐节第一场表演,在富力公主湾以独特的户外花园演奏会形式拉开序幕;由本地音乐才子拿督吴加明博士教授及来自英国的Charivari Agréable乐团联合呈现多首巴洛克时期的精彩曲目,向威廉·莎士比亚这位文学巨匠逝世400周年之际致敬。大会也荣幸邀请到柔佛州苏丹后及公主出席,为此次开场演出生色不少!

The opening performance took a 200-strong audience, including the guest-of-honour – DYMM Raja Zarith Sofiah (Permaisuri Johor) and YAM Tunku Tun Aminah (Puteri Johor), through a musical narrative journey commemorating the 400th anniversary of the death William Shakespeare. Set in a unique garden concert setting at R&F Princess Cove, the carefully curated programme by Charivari Agréable, led by Dato Dr. Ng Kah Ming on Harpsichord, accompanied by singer reader Isobel Collyer and Layil Barr on Recorder & Viol, featured Elizabeth I & her suitors, via contemporary anecdotes and readings from Shakespeare’s Sonnets, with songs & instrumental pieces from the Golden Age of England & Spain by Byrd, Dowland, Campion, Ortiz, Farnaby and etc.
