    Tokyo Philharmonic to Perform Symphonic Fantasies in Japan

    Square Enix have announced that they will perform Symphonic Fantasies in a special concert series in Tokyo, Japan next year. The concert, originally premiered in Cologne during 2009, features extended symphonic fantasias dedicated to Yoko Shimomura's Kingdom Hearts, Hiroki Kikuta's Secret of Mana, Yasunori Mitsuda's Chronos, and Nobuo Uematsu's Final Fantasy.

    The Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Tokyo Philharmonic Chorus will present Symphonic Fantasies. In addition, Singapore-German pianist Benyamin Nuss and Lebanese percussionist Rony Barrak will return as special soloists. The performances will be conducted by Eckehard Stier, an experienced classical conductor who is currently music director Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.

    Square Enix have announced the concert at their official website here to coincide with the Tokyo Game Show. The page streams samples from the CD release of the concert. The dates and venue of the concert will be announced at a later date.

    I discovered by chance that Joshua Bell is coming to Oslo concert hall Nov 24 and 25 - I got tickets for the 25th. I'm taking my mother cause the last time I saw him play I went alone, and she was miffed about that afterwards...so I promised her I'd bring her along the next time he came to Oslo He will play Sibelius violin concerto with Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra.

    Default Dudamel at Disney Concert Hall

    I'm super excited to catch one of the last shows of Dudamel and Goode at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. This coming weekend is the last weekend of his residency, and tickets are still available. I sometimes work with the LA Phil and have been lucky enough to see Dudamel a few times and he is quite amazing. If anyone is in the LA area and hasn't gotten tickets yet, I'd love to see some fellow music-loving Angelenos at the show: http://www.laphil.com/dudamel.

    What better way to get into the Christmas Spirit than by enjoying some wonderful classical Swedish Christmas Music in one of London's most beautiful concert hall, Wigmore Hall. Mulled Wine and Ginger Bread (Pepparkakor) will be served during the interval and if you like many others don't want to miss this truly unique Christmas Concert you better hurry up, last year the Concert sold out weeks in advance!

    16th Nov: Bruckner's Symphony No. 4 and Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto.
    Soloist Janine Jansen and conductor Osmo Vanska/ London Philharmonic Orchestra!! - can't wait!
    -- I'm travelling to London for a week as a part of a study trip with my music class, a group of punks, heavy metal and rockers.. most of them have never seen a conductor or a violin in real life before, so that should be interesting.. To be frank, I am actually quite worried.. what if they are bored to bits? :/

    The North Carolina Symphony is doing Mahler 4 this weekend. I'm pretty excited to hear for $10 (as a student) a great conductor in Grant Llewellyn and a great orchestra play Mahler, especially since Meymandi Concert Hall has awesome acoustics.

    Pollini is coming to the South Bank Centre here in the UK in to give a survey of keyboard music from Bach to Stockhausen in five recitals between January and May 2012. I hope to go to at least a couple but I can't access the booking page. http://ticketing.southbankcentre.co....ollini-project

    I'll be attending an open orchestra rehearsal next week for this program.

    DEBUSSY Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune
    SUNG Rockwell Reflections
    BRAHMS Piano Concerto No. 1

    The "Rockwell Reflections" was programmed in conjunction with a Norman Rockwell special exhibit at the art museum. About the composition:
    Stella Sung's composition is a study in Americana. Come experience Rockwell's iconic paintings as they are beautifully revealed in music... and projected imagery! Sung chose chose five seminal paintings by Norman Rockwell to use as points of departure for her compositions. Like Rockwell’s paintings, these compositions have a strong narrative quality though listeners are free to imagine their own stories and illustrate them with eyes closed.
    Paintings:
    Artist Facing Blank Canvas, 1938
    The Stay at Homes, 1927
    Checkers, 1928
    Murder in Mississippi, 1965
    The Peace Corp, JFK’s Bold Legacy, 1966
    see more here.

    I'd like to bring the scores to the Debussy and Brahms and read them during the rehearsal. Do you think that's acceptable? I think it would be fun.

    I intend to attend the Rockwell art exhibit this coming weekend. It features 42 original artworks as well as a complete collection of 323 Saturday Evening Post cover sheets.

    The Opera in Oslo released their 2012-2013 program yesterday. Among the concerts were a Schubert recital with Christian Gerhaher, and a concert with Antonio Pappano/Santa Cecilia Orchestra, no less. Tickets won't be released until May, so I have time to consider whether it's possible to get the cheapest, standing-room-only student discount tickets so I can attend both concerts....nothing is certain yet.
