TPCC Presents: Skywalk
“I see a visionof divinity, God’s Earth,the scars of national boundaries gone!”— Stevan KeaneThroughout history, spiritual and sacred texts have described events where earthly beings attain divinity, and where deities exhibit the very essence of humanity. In this concert titled Skywalk, The Philharmonic Chamber Choir recollects exquisite moments through a diverse selection of works which illustrate how the divine and the mortal intertwine.Witness the conflicts and resolutions of the soul in Hugo Wolf’s Sechs geistliche Lieder, and the austere retelling of a well-known biblical story in Arvo Pärt’s The Woman with the Alabaster Box. Experience the deep invocation of the Holy Spirit in Krzystof Penderecki’s Veni Creator, and the stark yet calming diatonicism of Ton de Leeuw’s Prière. Celebrate both earthly and heavenly wonder through an African-inspired Magnificat by Giles Swayne, and the Southeast Asian premiere of Magnificat from a Garden in the Antipodes by New Zealander composer Janet Jennings. Finally, partake in a sense of otherworldliness by gazing upon the earth with Steve Martland’s Skywalk, so that you too may perceive transcendence in your very own Skywalk.With the support of Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa

SINGAPORE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF...
A collective audiovisual performance by six inventive local artists, exploring the convergence of multiple selvesSelves don’t exist firmly in the present; they are “just coming into life in the flow of time” by virtue of their dependence on future loci of interpretance — future semiotic selves — that will come to interpret them. All semiosis, then, creates future. — Eduardo Kohn, How Forests Think: An Anthropology Beyond the HumanSix artists, each a point of convergence between multiple pasts, presents, and futures, meld into their multiple selves, entangled in a web of collaboration and co-existence. SA x NADA x Brandon Tay is the inventive collective result, an ensemble audiovisual performance that explores the amalgamation of these individual selves from three distinct bodies of art.SA (仨), a triplet band trained in traditional Chinese music, explores identity through the creation of original soundscapes with an inventive approach to Chinese musical instruments; visual arts and sound duo NADA, conjure up sights and sounds of bygone eras through a contemporary approach to Southeast Asian music. An audiovisual performer whose multifaceted approach spans multiple mediums, Brandon Tay plays both co-composer and conductor, using media as both the stimulus and accompaniment to SA and NADA’s music.The audience is invited to travel unencumbered by time as both voyeur and voyager, indexing sounds and images as they come to life in the flow of time.

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.

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

re:SOUND - Baroque to Beethoven wit...
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. The former brims with a wealth of tonal variety and colour, while the latter features delightful interplay between the solo quartet and the orchestra.Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 in D major is one of his most cheerful and outgoing works, ironically composed during a dark period when he was coming to accept his impending and inevitable deafness. Full of mirth and vigour, this symphony is a remarkable testament to the composer’s triumph over despair.Renowned for his virtuosity and versatility and described as "exquisite" by The Independent on Sunday, Beznosiuk has secured his reputation over the last 25 years with a busy international career as soloist, chamber musician, concertmaster and increasingly as a director.
