Conservatory Orchestra Series: Prel...
JASON LAI conductorALBERT TIU pianoCONSERVATORY ORCHESTRAR. STRAUSSDon Juan, Op. 20DEBUSSYPrélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, L. 86TCHAIKOVSKYPiano Concerto No. 2, Op. 44“After all, an artist is by definition a man accustomed to dreams and living among apparitions."Claude DebussyYST Conservatory’s final orchestral concert of the year offers masterworks from three of the late nineteenth century's most iconic composers, each linking in a different way to its Dreams & Apparitions theme. Where Don Juan seems in retrospect a natural evolution in aesthetic and sonority to the subjective intensities of the Romantic age, Debussy's Fawn offers that era a quietly compelling revolution in musical approach and direction. The evening culminates with the pianist as hero, with faculty member Albert Tiu offering Tchaikovsky's glittering and virtuosic 2nd piano concerto.

Figure8 Agency Presents Tinariwen...
Figure8 Agency, in collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, is thrilled to present the Tuareg Grammy-winning sensation Tinariwen in Singapore! Tinariwen is an iconic desert blues band originally from northern Mali, a country which has given the world Toumani Diabaté and the great Ali Farka Touré, among others. Rooted in traditional Tuareg music but influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley, their music addresses political awakening, problems of exile, repression, and sovereignty. The band has become a rallying point for the disenfranchised nation, while helping to garner global interest in desert blues, a hypnotic and danceable combination of blues, Tuareg folk, rock and more. Outlawed in Algeria and Mali, their first two albums found an international audience, and paved the way for a wave of Tuareg desert blues artists such as Bombino and Tamikrest. Their praises have been sung by some of the planet’s most influential musicians—Thom Yorke, Damon Albarn, Robert Plant and Chris Martin, to name just a few.Elwan was recorded between Morocco and Joshua Tree, California, with special guests Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age), Kurt Vile and Matt Sweeney (Johnny Cash, Bonnie Prince Billy and Cat Power). This record reaffirms this Tuareg institution as one of the most legendary and influential African bands in recent decades. Elwan has been nominated for Best World Music Album at the 2018 Grammy Awards

Leonard Bernstein's Mass Performed...
What is the role of faith in times of social and political disillusionment? When Jacqueline Kennedy approached composer Leonard Bernstein to compose a piece for the 1971 inauguration of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., the composer had a surprising inspiration amidst the political and social turmoil of the 1960s—the Roman Catholic Mass. At the heart of Mass: A Theatre Piece is the Celebrant, who, disillusioned by the doubts of his community, goes through a crisis of faith.Arguably Bernstein’s most ambitious work, Mass receives its long overdue Singapore premiere in the composer’s birth centennial. Joining the Orchestra of the Music Makers are two choirs, rock musicians, and a cast of Broadway-styled vocalists, epitomising the West Side Story composer’s deftness at fusing diverse styles. From solemn hymns and soothing meditations to edgy symphonic dances, and with an exciting infusion of Broadway, blues, rock, jazz and pop idioms, this eclectic musical-theatrical work is led by conductor Joshua Kangming Tan and directed by Edith Podesta, with production design by Brian Gothong Tan. Kevin Vortmann plays the Celebrant, following a sensational debut in the role with the Philadelphia Orchestra that was described by Opera News as “an exceptionally good choice for this central role…(with) immaculate dynamic control into the part’s many challenges."Joshua Kangming Tan, ConductorKevin Vortmann, CelebrantVilancico Vocal Ensemble, (Eudenice Palaruan, Vocal Coach)Symphonia Choralis, (Chong Wai Lun, Chorus Master)Volare Treble Voices, (Darius Lim, Chorus Master)Edith Podesta, DirectorBrian Gothong Tan, Multimedia DesignerIn collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay in conjunction with OMM’s 10th anniversary
