Orchestra of the Music Makers: Concerts in June and August



The Orchestra of the Music Makers will be presenting concerts in June and August, the latter one featuring quite a substantial Wagnerian programme including the Liebestod and Immolation Scene. More details about both concerts below:

==========================

Tchaikovsky’s Fourth
Date: 15 June 2013
Time: 7.30 pm
Venue: SOTA Concert Hall

Programme
Presenter: Orchestra of the Music Makers
Conductor: Christopher Adey

MOZART Symphony No. 40, KV 550
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 4, Op. 36

Synopsis
Principal Guest Conductor Christopher Adey returns to conduct the Orchestra of the Music Makers in two cornerstones of the symphonic repertoire.

Mozart’s 40th is easily one of the most recognisable and popular pieces of classical music. It shows the composer at his most inventive, elegantly lyrical yet coloured by a restless undercurrent. Tchaikovsky's intensely dramatic 4th Symphony is an epic, with fate, "that fateful force which prevents the impulse to happiness from attaining its goal, which jealously ensures that peace and happiness shall not be complete and unclouded”, at its centre of its powerful discourse.

Tickets at $15 and $12, Concessions for Students, NSFs and Senior Citizens at $12 and $10 from EventClique (https://tickets.eventclique.com/omm/Online/default.asp )

OMM turns 5! with Melvyn Tan and Felicitas Fuchs
Date: 28 August 2013
Time: 7.30 pm
Venue: Esplanade Concert Hall

Programme
Presenter: Orchestra of the Music Makers
Conductor: Chan Tze Law

WAGNER Tristan und Isolde:
Prelude and Liebestod (Soprano: Felicitas Fuchs)
BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 4, Op. 58 (Pianist: Melvyn Tan)
WAGNER Götterdämmerung:
Dawn and Siegfried’s Rhine Journey
Siegfried’s Funeral March
Brunnhilde’s Immolation Scene and Finale (Soprano: Felicitas Fuchs)

Synopsis
Exactly 5 years after its debut in 2008, OMM performs masterworks by the most influential composers in the history of Western Art Music: Beethoven and Wagner. Beethoven specialist Melvyn Tan returns to perform with OMM after a successful collaboration in last year’s Cheltenham Festival, performing Beethoven’s 4th Piano Concerto, which he has recorded to critical acclaim with Sir Roger Norrington.

The Orchestra will also scale the twin peaks of Tristan and Gotterdammerung, celebrating Richard Wagner’s 200th birth anniversary with German Soprano Felicitas Fuchs. Wagner’s scores are the forerunner of today’s Hollywood film scores: highly emotive, action packed and impactful, something to be experienced live with a hundred-strong Orchestra!
