Client: Singapore Symphony Orchestra
Singapore Symphony Orchestra presents the yearly Baroque Festival in a 3-part installment for their Chamber Series. Connecting directly with the legacy of J.S. Bach with German organist, Stefan Kießling who hails from the St.Thomas Church in Leipzig where Bach was Kapellmeister for the final decades of his life. The Singapore Symphony Chorus conducted by Eudenice Palaruan joins Kießling to complete this tribute to the grand master of the Baroque.
The second installment, dedicated to the late Dr. Goh Keng Swee, founding patron of the SSO, to mark his 100th birthday, witnesses the majestic tunes of Purcell and Handel, whose unparalleled mastery of setting the English language to music will be showcased in magnificent choral tributes to kings and queens.
The final installment rejoices greatly through the jubilant tunes of Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks and bare our hearts to the poignant strains of Purcell’s theatre music as acclaimed choral conductor Sofi Jeannin leads us through a jewel-studded tour of the English Baroque in an expressive selection of arias, including the radiant serenity of Handel’s “Ombra mai fu”.
We conceptualised and illustrated the marketing posters for the festival. With statues being commonly used in Baroque architectures, and at the same time is also generically an artistic method to commemorate a historical event, or the life of an influential person, our concept honours the baroque art movement with the use of such figurative expressions. A series of modern and contemporary in bold artistry and bright colors are used portray a refershing approach of paying tribute to the realism and solemness of Baroque Art.
