The spirit of patriotism inspired by the former Command House is expressed in this moving performance of Joseph Haydn’s Emperor’s Quartet Op. 76 No. 3
by students from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music. Originally written for the Emperor of Austria, this string quartet is particularly famous for its second movement, and the melody was later used as the German national anthem, “Deutschlandlied”.
