The wind is blowing. Do you hear the conversation within?
When a poem inspires the melody, the words are given new life. Like the sound of the cello which is closest to the human voice, the voice of the piano can be as soothing as a stream of running water. So sit back and be mesmerised by the music of composer Liong Kit Yeng and cellist Chee Jun Sian as they joined our Singaporean poets in this poetic sharing session.
