MU­SIC TO YOUR EARS

Asia Dreams - - WHAT'S HAPPENING -

While Bali has be­come well­known in­ter­na­tion­ally for its vi­brant DJ scene, other mu­si­cal gen­res are also pop­u­lar on the is­land. Over the last year or so, Padma Ho­tels has been pampering clas­si­cal mu­sic fans with a range of con­certs en­com­pass­ing a whole host of styles, from opera in Mu­sic of the Night to the sooth­ing Moon­light Ser­e­nades, to clas­si­cal gui­tar and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

The con­certs are held at Padma Re­sort Le­gian, fol­low­ing wine and canapes, and Padma Re­sort Ubud, fol­low­ing din­ner with free-flow wine, on con­sec­u­tive nights, giv­ing those in both the south and the north of the is­land the rare chance to in­dulge their mu­si­cal senses.

This Septem­ber it's the turn of the Jakarta Con­cert Orches­tra con­ducted by Avip Pri­atna, fea­tur­ing Gio­vani Biga on vi­o­lin, Marini Widyas­tari and Metta Fau­r­izka Ari­ono on flute and Wirya Satya on oboe. The mu­sic will com­prise clas­si­cal pieces from Beethoven to In­done­sian folk songs. Avip, who founded the Jakarta Con­cert Orches­tra, has won sev­eral in­ter­na­tional awards and stud­ied at the Univer­sity of Per­form­ing Arts in Vienna, com­plet­ing his Mag­is­ter Ar­tium with a high laude dis­tinc­tion in Parahyan­gan.

Mean­while, Biga is cur­rently study­ing at Hochschule Für Musik Det­mold, Ger­many and rep­re­sented In­done­sia in the pres­ti­gious Asian Youth Orches­tra; he also had suc­cess at the sixth Stock­holm In­ter­na­tional Mu­sic Com­pe­ti­tion.

This month's con­cert will take place on 2nd Septem­ber at Padma Re­sort Ubud and 3rd Septem­ber at Padma Re­sort Le­gian. Con­tact ei­ther of the Padma re­sorts for tick­ets. padma­ho­tels.com
