The 12 Cellists played one of their most important works, Hymnus, as the opening piece in the concerts, followed by Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 1, Piazzolla’s Adios Nonino, Libertango, and Fuga y misterio, The Beatles’ All my Loving, arranged by Shigeaki Saegusa, Morricone’s The Man with the Harmonica, Miller's Moonlight serenade, Duke Ellington’s Caravan, and other crossover works. The mixture of depth and lightness appealed to audiences of all ages.
It was a memorable night for the musicians and the audience but it was also a meaningful charity event. The Bank invited 55 visually impaired students, underprivileged music students and low income families to attend the concert, who would otherwise not have the chance to do so.
The concert was a huge success and ended with a standing ovation from the audience, cheering for the 12 Cellists' fabulous performance.
