Pianist Michael Kim has designed this unique programme with narration to portray the special character of a piece conveyed by the key signature. Michael Kim wrote, “This concert will be a fascinating musical journey through the emotional landscapes of mood, character and colour, brought to life by a composer’s choice of key. Ranging from the innocent purity of C major, the triumph and victory of D major, and the noble grandeur of E flat major, to the languishing of C minor and the tragic pathos of F minor, this programme chronicles how a composer’s choice of key signature influences the creative process and shapes the cognitive and emotional perceptions of the audience.”
