After several successful European tours in 2017 and 2018 the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne (Germany) is coming back to Australia with a powerful and lovely new program.
“Classical music the world over” is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne. It is irrelevant for the musicians 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 – to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music.
The popularity of the ensemble is reflected in the fact the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with the exceptionally talented musicians.
The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in the city whose name they bear: Cologne. 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 here for many decades who, in terms of their musicality, are unparalleled around the world.
Taking advantage of this pool of talent, a stock of outstanding musicians has accrued that take their motto across 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 to Germany.
The permanently expanding repertoire consists primarily of hand-picked pieces. The real appeal of the 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 diversity of the highest order, without having to preach to the audience in the process.
Don't miss the rare opportunity to experience one of Germany's finest ensembles when Chamber Philharmonia Cologne performs on Friday, February 1, 8pm, in St Clement’s Church in Merimbula.
A diverse program will range from Vivaldi’s famous "La Tempesta di Mare" to Bach, Tchaikovsky and Camille Saint-Saens.
Tickets are available at St Clement’s Church one hour prior to the concert from 7pm.
They will also play on Saturday, February 2, at 8pm in St Patrick’s Church in Bega. Tickets from Magpie Music.
