Inspiring classical mix for Broadford
In an unusual treat for classical music fans, Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is coming to Broadford as part its summer tour.
The concert will be held in St Matthew’s Anglican Church on Sunday, February 19 at 7.30 pm.
‘‘Classical music the world over’’ is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. The musicians don’t mind whether they are playing in a little village church, in the open air, in Cologne Cathedral or in the Sydney Opera House; their enthusiasm to play music is the same every time.
The objective is simple — they want to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in the city whose name it carries: Cologne, Germany.
The city that is famous throughout the world for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching. Generations of musicians have been trained there for many decades who, the orchestra claims, are unparalleled around the world.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne is at home all over the world. Tours regularly take in New Zealand, Australia, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland and many other countries and of course Germany.
The multifaceted composition of the ensemble provides every member of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne with the opportunity to perform as a soloist.
The permanently expanding repertoire of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne consists primarily of hand-picked pieces.
The real appeal of their program lies in the meeting of popular and unknown works from a wide variety of musical epochs.
This sees familiar greats like Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi in dialogue with works from people such as Sergei Prokofieff through to the ‘‘King of Tango’’ Astor Piazzolla.
This mix promises great diversity of the highest order, without them having to preach to the audience in the process.
