Vincent Van Gogh, Stieg Larsson and Johann Sebastian Bach all have one thing in common: they were little known in their lifetimes but are revered today as celebrities of their own fields. Similarly, like buried treasures, music could go unpublished during a composer's lifetime and remain hidden for centuries till it resurfaces in the most surprising and delightful ways.Following the successful performances of "The Brahms Violin Sonatas" and "Mozart meets Corigliano", violinist Lee Shi Mei and pianist Lim Yan are back as a duo, performing posthumously published violin and piano sonatas.Works featured include Felix Mendelssohn's Sonata in F major (1838), Maurice Ravel's Sonata No. 1 in A minor, and Franz Schubert's Sonata in A major, D574.
Voices Series The Swingles (UK)

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

1. L.van Beethoven – Sonata op 12, No 1Allegro con brioTema con Variazioni, Andante con motoRondo2. S. Prokofiev – Five Melodies--- intermission ---3. C. Frank – Sonata for Violin and Piano in A MajorAllegretto ben moderatoAllegroBen moderato: Recitativo-FantasiaAllegretto poco mosso4. M. Ravel - TziganeMiroslav Hristov – ViolinChih-Long Hu - PianoPrize-winning artists Miroslav Hristov, violin; and Chih-Long Hu, piano, have performed in prestigious venues around the world including New York’s Carnegie Hall, the International Violin Festival of Puerto Rico, and the International Interharmony Festival in Italy. As part of their East Asian tour which includes performances in Shanghai, Taipei, and Kaohsiung, the duo will present some of the most monumental and challenging works for violin and piano. The program commences with a staple of the classical literature and one of Beethoven’s earliest compositions for this medium, his Sonata for Piano and Violin, No. 1 in D Major. A signature work of the classical style, the beauty and simplicity of this sonata exudes an elegance and nobility that is uniquely Beethoven. From there, the duo looks to the East with an expressive performance of Five Melodies for Violin and Piano by the Russian composer, Sergei Prokofiev. Written in 1945, the Five Melodies were championed by the legendary violinist, David Oistrakh. In regards to the Five Melodies, Oistrakh commented that, “it is music in which nothing can be omitted, not a single turn of the melody, not a single modulation. It requires the strictest attention to every detail of expression, a fine, but not over-refined execution of each individual intonation, as in the case of well-enunciated singing.”The second half of the program starts off with the thickly textured and evocative work from the Romantic period, the Violin and Piano Sonata in A Major by composer César Franck. A depiction of love and passion, Franck’s Violin Sonata was a wedding gift to the Belgian violinist, Eugène Ysaÿe.In a technically thrilling tribute to Gypsy music, the program ends with a burst of energy and emotion with Ravel’s virtuosic rhapsody, Tzigane. Depicting the unconventional style of the Eastern European Gypsy, Ravel’s Tzigane is a work that explores the widest range of sounds and colors from the violin.

Pavlo Beznosiuk, music director of the Avison Ensemble and frequent soloist/leader of the Academy of Ancient Music leads re:Sound, Singapore’s premier chamber orchestra in a concert of works from the Baroque, Classical and early Romantic eras, each a mainstay of the chamber orchestra repertoire.Handel’s Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 1 and Haydn’s Sinfonia Concertante in Bb are wonderful examples of concertos written for multiple soloists.

Stereophonics - Live in Singapore
LAMC Productions is thrilled to announce that one of Britain’s best live acts & rock icons, STEREOPHONICS, will return to Singapore, following the release of their latest album ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ on Tuesday, 8 May, 2018 at Zepp @ BigBox Singapore!Rising from pubs to stadiums, Stereophonics’ accomplishments are near limitless. Six #1 albums. Eleven Top 10 singles, including the chart-topping ‘Dakota’. Headline sets at festivals including Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, V and the Isle of Wight. Huge headline shows at Slane Castle, Edinburgh Castle and the Cardiff Community Stadium. Tours with David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, The Who and U2. When recently asked what he was listening to, Bob Dylan replied, “Stereophonics.”Twenty years after their debut Word Gets Around; Stereophonics’ tenth studio album released on October 27th via Parlophone Records follows Keep The Village Alive which went straight to #1 when it was released in 2015 and became their sixth chart-topper after Performance and Cocktails (1999), Just Enough Education To Perform (2001) You Gotta Go There To Come Back (2003), Language. Sex. Violence. Other? (2005) and Pull The Pin (2007).Scream Above The Sounds was primarily recorded in the band’s HQ in west London with a further session at RAK Studios. Created with the help of regular collaborator Jim Lowe, it’s an album in which creative sonic touches add to the band’s emphasis on songwriting and melody.While ‘Scream Above The Sounds’ doesn’t consciously reflect on the ‘Word Gets Around’ era, both ‘Before Anyone Knew Our Name’ and the lo-fi ‘Boy On A Bike’ suggest that looking back is the best way to move forward. Regarding the latter song, Kelly states, “That talks about when I grew up in a very small town and having that freedom of being on a bike on a white blanket of snow. That image is something I go back to, to calm myself down when it all gets a bit intense.”“Kelly Jones has got one of the damn finest voices in rock ‘n’ roll.” – ClashNow, founding members Kelly Jones (vocals/guitar) and Richard Jones (bass) are joined by the relative newcomers, Adam Zindani (guitar) and Jamie Morrison (drums), along with long-term live keyboardist Tony Kirkham. “It’s like when you think of Ronnie Wood being the new guitarist in The Stones,” laughs Kelly. “That new guy syndrome never wears off.”“There’s still no-one to touch them for rumbling rockers or perfectly-honed stadium ballads.”– Daily StarStereophonics'' debut album, Word Gets Around, was released in August 1997 and instantly charted at number six in the UK, aided by the singles "Local Boy in the Photograph", "More Life in a Tramps Vest" and "A Thousand Trees", all of which failed to affect the top 20. The band reached mainstream success with the release of Performance and Cocktails (and its promotional singles "The Bartender and the Thief", "Just Looking" and "Pick a Part That's New") in 1999 and have achieved a total of ten top-ten singles as well as one number-one: 2005''s "Dakota". The band have also been praised for their live performances, which have landed them headlining slots at many of the UK and Ireland's most high-profile music festivals, including Reading and Leeds in 2000, Glastonbury in 2002, V festival in 2002, the Isle of Wight in 2004 and 2009, and Oxegen in 2010. Stereophonics will be headlining 2 massive stadiums in Wales this summer along with headlining Scotland’s biggest festival TRNSMT and Britain’s newest 50,000 capacity festival RiZe.Each Stereophonics album attracts a new legion of young fans who are discovering them for the very first time. What’s more, it’s an audience that’s split evenly between male and female.

Come and celebrate the life and music of the late great vocalist Teresa Teng, as we present a jazzy tribute to one of Asia’s most loved vocalists, Teresa Teng. She was one of the highest selling vocalists of all time before her untimely passing in 1995, with her immense success and popularity in China and with Chinese-speaking people all across the globe.The concert marks the launch of a beautifully arranged album that was recently recorded in Germany, which will be released on the Jazznote Record label.It features as the lead artist of the show vocalist Melissa Tham who has become one of Singapore’s best-known Jazz vocalists. In 2014 UK jazz journalist Ian Patterson of allaboutjazz.com praised her for having “won over the Queen Elizabeth Hall” at her guest performance with the Jeremy Monteiro Trio at the EFG London Jazz Festival in 2014. Melissa is also the recipient of the SingJazz Vocalist of the Year award in 2015.Long time collaborator and well-known jazz pianist Jeremy Monteiro and a stellar band of musicians including top Hong Kong guitarist Eugene Pao will accompany her. Also in the band are drummer Shawn Kelley, flutist Rit Xu and saxophonist Julian Chan.The tunes made popular by Teresa Teng such as ‘月亮代表我的心 The Moon Represents My Heart’, ‘我只在乎你 I Only Care About You’, and ‘Goodbye My Love’ are given a fresh jazz treatment which both honours the original beauty of the songs whilst taking on a new jazzy and sophisticated approach.It is particularly meaningful for Jeremy to have produced the album and be the music director on this show for two reasons. One, he recorded with Teresa Teng in the 1980s and two, Melissa Tham is one of his favourite jazz singers.
