The Art of War 《战数》
The earliest evidence of mathematical skills in China dates back to the Shang Dynasty (1600 - 1050BC). The Chinese independently developed concepts in algebra, geometry, trigonometry as well as decimal and binary systems, establishing themselves as the world's most foremost mathematicians. From architectural marvels that have withstood the test of time to Sun Tze's The Art of War and the military strategies in the period of The Three Kingdoms, the history of China is repleted with stories of how Mathematics has shaped the development of Chinese civilisations.
Through pieces such as The Great Wall Capriccio 《长城随想曲》, Yellow River Piano Concerto 《黄河钢琴协奏曲》and a revisit of Symphonic Poem: The Battle of Red Cliffs 《交响诗：赤壁》, NUSCO will retell the history of China, and how Mathematicians has played a role in its survival and success. Featuring tenor Raymond Lee, and pianist Tan Tzu Kuang, concerto competition winner from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.
