CKS Acoustics

Wonder if anyone else caught Emanuel Ax last night at CKS.
Couple of early Beethoven sonatas Op. 2, followed by
all four Chopin Ballades. Spellbinding.

However, the acoustics at CKS, what is going on, the
acoustics in the CKS MRT station are better than the concert hall.


I think it is fine for big orchestras but not for solo instumentalists. I’ve heard 2 orchestral concerts there recently and they were fine. I saw that the King’s Singers were there and didn’t go because I thought that the acoustic would be to big for a small a capella group.

Try standing in the middle of the square and clapping or stamping your feet. Weird echo.

p.s. My father worked with the King’s Singers as recording engineer.
