Notes of Truth – The Artists


Chamber Music and Arts Singapore’s very own short Documentary will be released in less than two days ~!  This will be the first time Notes of Truth will be available to the general public, so we hope you are just as excited as we are !

Since 2014, CMAS’ biannual LIVE projects – featuring formal Evening Concerts, interactive Concerts for Children, intimate Sharing Recitals and activities within the communities – have seen many internationally acclaimed musicians and artists step through our doors.  

Some of whom are featured in Notes of Truth – this documentary allows their motivations, passion and thought processes, as well as snippets of their lives as professional performing musicians, to come to light.

One musician whom we may all be quite familiar with, is the 2015 Honens Prize Laureate Luca Buratto.  He has been a consistent artist at Chamber Music and Arts Singapore since 2016 ~ joining us most recently at our LIVE project in November 2019 before the pandemic arrived.

Described as “a name to watch” by The Guardian and “no ordinary virtuoso” by The Telegraph in U.K., Buratto’s playing ~ highlighted by the International Piano magazine as “masterly” ~ has gained immense recognition from critics and audiences around the world. 

In Notes of Truth, Buratto shares his philosophy towards music and how he approaches this art form:

An outstanding violist from Taiwan, Hsin-Yun Huang is another artist featured in Notes of Truth. Serving on the faculties of The Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music, Huang was awarded the gold medal in the 1988 Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition, and was the top-prize winner in the ARD International Competition in Munich in 1993.

Performing as a soloist under the baton of David Robertson, Osmo Vänskä, Xian Zhang, and Max Valdes, Huang is also the first solo violist to be presented at the National Performance Center of the Arts in Beijing.

One of the two pillar artists holding up our epic 6+6ach project in November 2017 with the CMAS team (then still known as TTK Grand Series) ~ Colin Carr also shares some of his vast experiences as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, and teacher in Notes of Truth

Appearing as soloist with major orchestras worldwide, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, the orchestras of Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, Philadelphia, Montréal and all the major orchestras of Australia and New Zealand, Carr has undeniably left his mark across the world.

As a member of the Golub-Kaplan-Carr Trio, he also recorded and toured extensively for 20 years; with frequent guest appearances with the Guarneri and Emerson string quartets and with New York’s Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

These are not the only stories Notes of Truth will bring you !

Don’t miss the sharings by many other artists such as violinist Min-Young Kim, violinist Daniel Chong, cellist Adrian Brendel and more !
