Concert with Piano & Orchestra. Soloist: Shaun Choo Conductor: Evan-Alexis Christ
Program: Chopin - Piano Concerto No. 1 in e minor Op. 11 | Shaun - Valsenchanté
A fusion of the Spanish words "Fiesta" (festival) and "Extravaganza" (extravagant) Camerata Fiestravaganza celebrates the creation of a new chamber orchestra with nearly 40 personally-selected talented musicians coming together from diverse cultures and ethnicities the majority of which are current students from the three main Universities of music in Berlin - Universität der Künste Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler and Barenboim-Said Akademie.
Led by renowned American conductor Evan Christ (www.evan-christ.com/english/) and more than ten-time International Prize Winning Classical Pianist Composer and Lecturer Shaun Choo at the piano they will be performing Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 in e minor Op. 11 as well as the world premiere of Shaun's debut work for Piano and Orchestra - Valsenchanté. Originally written for piano four-hands the enchanted Waltz has been specially re-arranged for this ensemble highlighting the capabilities of each member by playfully-interwoven melodic lines exchanged between instrument groups.
As the first external candidate in nearly a decade to be accepted into the Konzertexamen Doctoral program at the UdK join Shaun and his orchestra at this FREE event made possible by the funding from the Federal Government for Culture and the Media as part of NEUSTART KULTUR.
