We’ve already reached the penultimate week at the BBC Proms and Air Miles are clocking up apace with orchestras visiting from far afield. This evening saw the Singapore Symphony make its Proms debut, bringing in its hand-luggage a European première of a work by Chinese composer Zhou Long.

I was first struck by the scene’s arithmetic: one man; one piano; two sonatas; 900 audience members. I was then taken with how long Haefliger sat at the piano before playing. Those who appreciate music framed by silence would have approved of this.
