WildKat PR is delighted to welcome back Music@Malling for the fourth time. Music@Malling brings world-class artists to historic local venues in West Malling, Kent, combining a hugely successful outreach programme with a firm commitment to new music. This year sees the seventh iteration of the festival, in which 24 events will take place over 10 days, featuring music of leading contemporary composers, alongside classical, jazz and folk music. The festival aims to engage with the local community through education and outreach work and to provide events that both enrich and entertain audiences. Music@Malling aspires to develop innovative and creative projects that are of high quality and that raise the profile of music. The artists are involved in mentoring and supporting young musicians and composers across Kent.

This year, outreach work includes 1400 primary school children from 16 schools partaking in a project focusing on Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes as well as 480 children performing in four concerts alongside the festivals resident ensemble, Chamber Domaine, and narrator Matthew Sharp. Furthermore, in conjunction with Sound and Music, Go compose!, gives 10 young composers from Kent the opportunity to compose a piece of music that is performed and recorded in one day under the expert guidance of Simon Pearce (Royal College of Music and Purcell School) and Chamber Domaine. The festival also offers Meet the Composer events with composers such as Alexander Goehr and Paul Patterson, and mentoring workshops with the Artistic Director of Ronnie Scott’s, James Pearson.

Concerts will include Chamber Domaine performing Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis and Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Artists range from harpsichord player Steven Devine, violinist Thomas Bowes to guitarist Craig Ogden performing Bach, Dowland, Britten, and Albeniz. Flute player Sami Junnonen will perform music by Bach, Sciarrino, Debussy, Berio, Takemitsu, as well as the premiere of a new work by Tomi Räisänen.

Thomas Kemp, Artistic Director, says: ‘Our seventh festival promises to be our best yet with a wide range of music and lots of interesting programmes and opportunities for music lovers young and old. Contemporary music by Alexander Goehr and Paul Patterson rubs shoulders with works by Bach, Mozart, Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Gershwin as well as jazz, world, folk and vocal music across 24 events. I am particularly proud of our work with local schools –engaging young people in creative activities – many for the first time.’

WildKat PR is pleased to welcome the New York Concert Artists and Associates (NYCA) to our roster. We will be working with them on an exciting series of recitals, entitled ‘The Berlin Debuts’, where various talented international musicians make their premiere performances in Germany at the prestigious Berlin Philharmonie.

Recognising that artists are commonly subject to pressure from many angles such as the public and funding restrictions, Artistic Director and Founder, pianist Klara Min, wanted to create a platform where artists could be themselves and maintain artistic integrity and originality. Inspired by Schumann’s Davidsbund, the belief that in every situation, the ultimate artistic decisions are the domain of the musicians themselves, Klara founded NYCA in 2008 with the intention of replicating this idea in a modern context.

NYCA is led ‘by musicians for musicians and the musical public’ and regular meetings are held to discuss each other’s concerts and projects whilst also striving to help each other with any available resources. Klara also ensured that a priority to help musicians communicate more directly to the general public sat at the heart of the organisation. NYCA strive to forge dynamic connections between all areas of the music industry: musicians, managers, presenters, concert halls and also to promote young artists through NYCA’s own concert series, such as the one WildKat PR is working on.

The series will span through March and April and will then continue in October 2015 and spring 2016. Korean pianist Junghee Ryu, on the 16th March, will perform a programme including Mozart’s Piano Sonata no.15 and Schumann’s Fantasie op.17. Ryu already has an impressive CV, having played with the New York Sinfonietta and the Bulgarian Varna Philharmonic Orchestra. Sunhwa Park will perform a recital of favourites from Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart and Debussy on the 13th April. She has won prizes at numerous competitions such as the American Protégé International Competition of Romantic Music and the World Times Competition. To round off the season, Sarah Chan, who has also won many awards such as New York’s Carnegie Emerging Artist Award, will bring us Debussy, Ravel, Albéniz, Turina and Chopin.

Die New York Concert Artists (NYCA) präsentieren: The Berlin Debuts

WildKat PR heißt die New York Concert Artists and Asociates (NYCA) als neue Kunden willkommen. Wir werden mit ihnen an einer spannenden Konzertreihe arbeiten, die mit dem Titel „The Berlin Debuts” in der renommierten Berliner Philharmonie stattfinden. Dabei werden mehrere talentierte internationale Musiker auftreten, die das erste Mal in Deutschland auf der Bühne zu sehen sind.

Die Pianistin Klara Min, Intendantin und Gründerin der Organisation, erkannte, dass Musiker in ihrer künstlerischen Entwicklung häufig von verschiedensten Einflüssen, wie zum Beispiel öffentlichem und finanziellem Druck, gehemmt werden. Um dem entgegen zu wirken, gründete sie NYCA als Plattform, die Künstlern die Möglichkeit gibt, sie selbst zu sein und ihre künstlerische Integrität und Originalität zu erhalten. Klara gründete NYCA im Jahr 2008. Inspiriert durch Schumanns Davidsbund wollte sie seine Idee, dass endgültige künstlerische Entscheidungen in jeder Situation bei dem Künstler selbst liegen, in einen modernen Kontext übertragen.

NYCA wird organisiert „von Musikern für Musiker und die musikalische Öffentlichkeit“ und in regelmäßigen Treffen wird über Konzerte und Projekte diskutiert und sich gegenseitig geholfen. Klara legt großen Wert darauf, dass die Organisation Musikern hilft direkter mit der Öffentlichkeit zu kommunizieren. NYCA strebt danach, dynamische Verbindungen zwischen allen Bereichen der Musikindustrie zu knüpfen: Musiker, Manager, Konzerthallen und Labels, und junge Künstler in eigenen Konzertreihen zu fördern, wie zum Beispiel die Konzertreihe in Berlin an der WildKat PR gerade arbeitet.

Die Konzertreihe findet ab März bis April diesen Jahres statt und wird im Oktober 2015 und Frühling 2016 weitergeführt. Die koreanische Pianistin Junghee Ryu wird am 16. März ein Programm aus Mozarts Klaviersonate Nr. 15 und Schumanns Fantasie Op. 17 aufführen. Ryu hat einen beeindruckenden Lebenslauf vorzuweisen, sie spielte bereits mit der New York Sinfonietta und dem Bulgarian Varna Philharmonic Orchestra. Sunhwa Park spielt in ihrer Aufführung die beliebtesten Stücke von Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart und Debussy am 13. April. Sie hat bereits Preise bei namhaften Wettbewerben wie dem Protégé International Competition of Romantic Music und der World Times Competition gewonnen. Zum Abschluss der Reihe gibt Sarah Chan ihr Programm aus Debussy, Ravel, Albéniz, Turina and Chopin. Sie ist ebenfalls mehrfache Preisträgerin und hat unter anderem den New York’s Carnegie Emerging Artist Award gewonnen.

Auf der Website von NYCA finden Sie mehr Informationen über die Organisation und die Künstler.
