The Magical World of Claude Debussy

Fantastic Journeys

Iwan concludes his homage to Claude Debussy with a programme of piano music that evokes fantastic images from across the world. In Debussy’s ‘Estampes’ and ‘Preludes’ the musical journey takes in Japanese pagodas, Spanish nightlife, Italian hills and French gardens. With the vibrant sounds of Francis Poulenc’s ‘Napoli’ suite and Emmanuel Chabrier’s rumbustious Bourrée fantasque, magical islands conjured up in pieces by John Ireland, Cyril Scott and Eric Jones, and Johannes Brahms’s gripping Seven Fantasies, this promises to be a scintillating experience.

Muse: Drones World Tour


Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme, Dominic Howard

Muse, the world renowned multi-platinum selling and multi-award winning band, embarked on their ambitious Drones World Tour in 2015-16, playing over 130 dates across the globe. Known for pushing boundaries in terms of their stage production the tour saw the band perform “in the round” from the middle of the arena, with the stage design and configuration giving fans a full 360 degree audio/visual sensory experience.

Central to the tour’s visuals were the Drones, which flew autonomously above the stage and across the audience, alongside giant projections which interacted with the band members on stage. This spectacle, featuring LEDs and lasers perfectly complimented the band’s celebrated repertoire. Key songs performed on the tour included “Psycho”, “Madness”, “Uprising”, “Plug in Baby”, “Supermassive Black Hole” and Knights of Cydonia.” 

 

Filmed and recorded over multiple shows the concert movie includes never before seen special effects along with an exclusive insight from the band in the introduction. Directors: Tom Kirk, Jan Willem Schram

 “an endless build-up, heading for one peak after another — is what a Muse concert sets out to deliver by every means available.”  [The New York Times describes the Muse live experience]

The unforgettable concerts that take place in André’s hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands are a sight to behold. Set against the incredible backdrop of the medieval town square, fans flock annually from all corners of the world to watch André perform with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, as well as sopranos, tenors, and some very special guests.
