    AMY MACDONALD & THE GERMAN RADIO PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA

    SR 1 Europawelle, the pop radio of the Saarland Broadcasting Corporation, and the Rockhal present the first concert of their new series “Premium Live”: Right at the outset, a world premiere with shooting star Amy Macdonald from Scotland, who is going to play a sensational concert with her band and the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra (DRP). On Sunday, 17th October, at 8 p.m., Amy Macdonald is going to present an orchestral edition of successful songs from her number one albums “This is the Life” and “A Curious Thing” on stage, together with the first class orchestra of the Saarland Broadcasting Corporation (SR). Gast Waltzing, who also wrote the scores for the symphonic arrangement of the pop songs, will act as guest conductor.

    Over the last two years, 22-year-old Amy Macdonald from Scotland has become a European superstar. Her albums were awarded platinum in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium. Last year, Amy Macdonald won the Echo, Germany’s most important music award, in the category “Best International Newcomer”. With about 900,000 copies of her first album “This is the Life” sold, she is Britain’s most successful newcomer of the last decade.

    This concert at the Rockhal is the first of a common series “Premium Live”, which will present more concerts of superior pop musicians together with the German Radio Philharmonic over the next years. Moreover, it is a world premiere: For the very first time, the singer works with a philharmonic orchestra. But it’s also new ground for the orchestra itself. Luxembourgian composer and conductor Gast Waltzing wrote the orchestral adaptation for this concert. This great experience will most certainly be more than just another “pop meets classic” event.

    The German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra is one of Germany‘s leading orchestras. It is built on the tradition-steeped history of the Radio Symphony Orchestra (RSO) of the Saarland Broadcasting Corporation and the Kaiserslautern Radio Orchestra (SWR). It is highly appreciated on an international level for its varied repertoire and its extraordinary programs and CD productions.

    The concert on 17th October at the Rockhal traces back to an initiative by the ARD pop radio station SR1 Europawelle (SR). The Saarland Broadcasting Corporation will record the concert for radio and TV transmission. Amy Macdonald’s label, Universal International, is planning to use the recordings for her third album which is to be released in December.

     

    WHATTHEHELL @ the end of the text? I hope they're releasing something, now i got excited.

    Tickets available 19th August.

    Yes, I thought about that. They're a bit silly writing third album though-

    Well....unless of course that it means 'third album' is a live album i.e. the recordings or selection of them...Anyone thinking that this could end up sounding like Sting's current album (not half bad by the way)

    P.S.: From german forum:

    Moin!

    Es gibt jetzt eine Pressemitteilung zu Amys Collaboration mit der Philharmonie:

    http://www.pressrelations.de/new/standard/result_main.cfm?pfach=1&n_firmanr_=115563&sektor=pm&detail=1&r=425343&sid=&aktion=jour_pm&quelle=0

    Amy Macdonald & die Deutsche Radio Philharmonie; Sonntag, 17. Oktober 2010, Rockhal//Main Hall, Esch/Alzette, Luxemburg; Einlass ab 19.00 Uhr; Beginn: 20.00 Uhr.
    (Karten gibt es eh nicht mehr, die waren ganz schnell weg)

    Das Konzert am Sonntag, 17. Oktober, 20.00 Uhr, in der Rockhal geht auf die Initiative des ARD-Popradios SR 1 Europawelle (Saarländischer Rundfunk) und der SR-Kommunikation zurück. Der Saarländische Rundfunk wird das Konzert für Hörfunk und Fernsehausstrahlungen mitschneiden.

    "Wir sind bestrebt uns mit dem Orchester eine interessante, möglichst breite programmatische Ausrichtung zu erarbeiten, immer unter der Vorgabe unseres hohen künstlerischen Anspruches. Dies sehen wir mit Amy Macdonald erfüllt, und so freuen wir uns sehr auf diese Premiere", sagte DRP-Orchestermanger Benedikt Fohr.

    Zum Inhalt:
    Dirigent und Komponist Gast Waltzing: "Für Amy Macdonald hab ich 16 ihrer Stücke ganz neu für die Symphonie orchestriert, wobei ich versucht habe, jedem einzelnen Stück einen ganz bestimmten Stil zuzuweisen. Das geht von Bach bis zu Ravel, Debussy und weiter! Ich hab mir über jedes Stück meine Gedanken gemacht und mich dabei sehr stark an den Texten orientiert. Ich habe immer versucht im Orchester etwas rüberzubringen, was mit dem Text oder mit der Atmosphäre des Songs zu tun hat. Ich hab versucht einige Stücke etwas fröhlicher zu machen, andere sind dafür etwas dunkler geworden. Aber das ist ja der Sinn der Sache: Es hat ja keinen Zweck ein ganzes Symphonieorchester zu nehmen und nur lange Noten zu machen - die kann man auch auf einem Synthesizer spielen. Es muss ja auch wirklich für Orchester geschrieben sein. Und das schönste Instrument auf der Welt, das ist einfach das Symphonieorchester!"

    Das klingt nach einer Megaherausforderung! :D

    Zum Vertrieb:
    "Die CD mit den Aufnahmen von `Premium live´ wird zum Weihnachtsgeschäft in allen CD-Läden dieser Welt stehen. Das macht uns auch ein bisschen stolz, zeigt es uns doch, dass dieses Projekt auch für das Weltunternehmen Universal Music, bei dem Amy Macdonald unter Vertrag ist, einen sehr hohen Stellenwert hat. Damit wird `Premium live´ gleich mit dem ersten Mal zu einer bedeutsamen internationalen Nummer."

    Zum Konzept:
    Die Deutsche Radio Philharmonie, das TOP-Orchester von Saarländischem Rundfunk und Südwestrundfunk, spielt live in der Rockhal zusammen mit einem angesagten und zugleich anspruchsvollen internationalen Popstar. Pro Jahr soll es ein Konzert dieser Art geben.

    Die CD ist mein! :D
