Join Light House on ‘A Musical Journey’ Tomorrow Night!

May 17, 2011

This is a chance to catch the Berlin Philharmonic  perform a classic piece of music alongside a unique film depicting Singapore life…

Acknowledged as the best orchestra in the world, the Berlin Philharmonic under their principal conductor Sir Simon Rattle present Gustav Mahler Symphony No. 1 in D Major, a unique and breath-taking experience.

The concert was filmed in the Esplanade concert hall Singapore and is cut with scenes of Singapore life around the city which translate the music themes into real city life scenes.

 There are two acts – Mahler’s First Symphony and Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances with a short interval. Celebrating the 100 year anniversary of Mahler’s death.

The film’s director, Michael Beyer, commented:

“The change between the two settings ‘orchestra’ and ‘Singapore’ reacts to the tunes, the tempi and the dance impulses of Rachmaninov’s score. Chinatown, breathtaking Western architecture and the Hindu temple together with all aspects of life, work, leisure and spiritually make the spectator believe that he is not only an observer, but in the middle of music and life.”

The film will be screened on Wednesday 18th May, that’s tomorrow!

Tickets cost: £12 full / £11 conc. For further information or to book tickets contact box office on 01902 716055 or visit www.light-house.co.uk
