In­spir­ing clas­si­cal mix for Broad­ford

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - Cham­ber Phil­har­mo­nia Cologne trav­els the world to in­stil a love of the clas­sics in peo­ple from all walks of life.

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.
