Natalie Ng's Transcriptions - An evening of songs and stories
Are transcriptions a form of musical plagiarism? Or is it just a case of the grass being greener on the other side: a composer sees a piece written by someone else and the melody is so nice that he has to make it his own? Join pianist Natalie Ng in an evening of classical and jazz transcriptions!
Time & Location
18 Oct 2020, 8:30 pm – 9:35 pm SGT
