Masterpieces of classics were performed by the Krasnoyarsk orchestra conducted by Maestro from Singapore
On July, 2 in the Small Concert Hall of the Krasnoyarsk Philharmonic Society within the III Krasnoyarsk International Music Festival of Asian-Pacific region there took place a concert of the Krasnoyarsk Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Maestro from the Republic of Singapore Yan Yin Wing.
Yan Yin Wing studied the conducting in London, trained at the famous Amsterdam Conservatory and took master classes at the International Mozart Summer Academy in Salzburg (Austria). Since 1989 he has led the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.
Overture to the opera “Oberon” by Carl Maria von Weber opened the programme. The opera was ordered by the Royal Opera House "Covent Garden" and staged in 1826. Today it is a big success on many stages of the world; however, the overture has surpassed the opera in popularity.
“Concerto for Marimba and Strings” by a modern French composer Emmanuel Sejourne was created in 2006 and since that time it has been included in the repertoire of many European orchestras. The Krasnoyarsk audience listened to it in the performance of the orchestra and a talented soloist from Tuva, a graduate of the Krasnoyarsk State Academy of Music and Theatre Bailak Mongush (marimba).
There was also sounded a piece of music by a world-famous Japanese marimba player Keiko Abe performed by the Ensemble of the percussion instruments "Wave". Symphony № 9 "From the New World" by A. Dvorak finished the concert of the Krasnoyarsk Orchestra conducted by the guest from Singapore.
