WildKat PR is delighted to welcome award-winning composer Douglas Knehans to our roster of artists.

Knehans’ music is about immediacy, drama, power, playfulness, architecture, harmonic structure, melodic expressiveness and more importantly depth and dimension. His music is about both love and life and a number of important critics see it that way too when they say his music “… tells an exciting story, ever- intensifying in color, thematic ideas, texture and tempo.” (The Washington Post)

His latest release Unfinished Earth is inspired by the relationship between nature and mankind. The disc features two works – “Tempest” and “Unfinished Earth” – represent contrasting views of how the external metaphors of wind and earth reflect more intimate internal worlds of the human heart and mind. The release is brought to life by the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, conductor Mikel Toms, and features soloists Gareth Davies, Principal Flautist of London Symphony Orchestra.” 

Knehans’ works have been released on various record labels which earned him numerous commissions, awards and fellowships in Australia and the United States from the Victorian Council, MacDowell Colony and Leighton Artist Colony. He has also worked with leading ensembles including the Canberra Symphony Orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and soloists like soprano Merlyn Quaife throughout his career. Once hailed by Fanfare Magazine for his “incisive, hauntingly beautiful recordings”, it’s no wonder that Knehans has garnered the attention and warm appreciation of audiences and performers around the globe.

We’re excited to be running a UK press campaign for the release of Knehans’ new release Unfinished Earth. The recording will be available to stream on NAXOS MUSIC LIBRARY and purchase on Ablaze Records from 6 April 2018.

Founded in 1895, the BBC Proms are a big part of British culture and the 2017 season begins tonight. For eight weeks of the summer, daily classical music concerts take place at the Royal Albert Hall and other venues across London, including Cadogan Hall, Stage@The Dock and Wilton’s Music Hall.

The term Prom is short for promenade concert, and refers to the outdoor concerts of the 18th century where the audience were able to stroll around while the orchestra played. Since then, the concerts have moved inside and, in the context of the BBC Proms, promming refers to the popular tradition of queueing outside the Royal Albert Hall on the day of the concert for the chance to get a £6 ticket for the standing areas inside the hall. Will you be a “prommer” this summer? Click here for some helpful tips on how to become a Pro-Prommer this year!

Royal Albert Hall: BBC Proms 2017

With the opening of the BBC Proms 2017 tonight, the WildKat team have put together a list of their highlights for this year…

Prom 35, the John Wilson Orchestra performing Oklahoma, appears to be a particular favourite in the office this year due to the magical sound that the orchestra creates and the energy that radiates from them when they perform. Not strictly classical, this prom would be a great one to go to for those who are novice prommers. Not convinced? Let The Spectator’s Richard Bratby, along with John Wilson, tell you why Rodgers and Hammerstein should be taken as seriously as Beethoven.

Another popular choice is Prom 10 with the Aurora Orchestra. Last year the ensemble performed their first prom from memory and it was such a unique experience – every single member of the orchestra completely engaged with the music and the conductor. This year they are performing Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ from memory and we can’t wait.

If you are looking for a musical fusion, then Prom 41 is for you. It brings together Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar, combining Glass’s American Minimalism with Shankar’s sitar and the traditions of Hindustani classical music. The Britten Sinfonia and Karen Kamensek are joined by Shankar’s daughter, sitar virtuoso Anoushka Shankar.

The Cincinatti Symphony Orchestra makes its Proms debut this year and, since they are one of our clients, the WildKat team are very excited about it. They will be bringing works by two celebrated American composers and we are really looking forward to seeing everything come together.

Last but certainly not least, Prom 75 – The Last Night of the Proms! What’s not to love about a big party with classical music, waving flags, sing alongs and bobbing along to the Sailor’s Hornpipe?

(Written on June 15, 2017 )

On the 29th May, Minister of State Monika Grütters, Minister for Education Martina Münch and Vice president of the German UNESCO committee Prof. Christoph Wulf submitted a certificate for 34 different kinds of cultural heritage in Berlin. One of them is our beloved instrumental amateur music making! Prof. Christoph Wulf says that ‚immaterial cultural heritage shapes identities and encourages social cohesion as well as the dialogue between social groups. It is source of creativity and innovation and contributes to social change. I congratulate everyone who’s been awarded today kindly and thank you for your steady enhancements of our cultural heritage. You stand for the diversification of our cultural landscape.‘

Additional activities that made it onto the shortlist of the nationwide index include the telling of fairy tales, poetry slams in Germany and East Frisian tea culture.

In order to qualify for the index, the activity or tradition must be of remarkable social value to a larger group. In the case of amateur music making in Germany one could ask the questions ‘what is special about the scene?’ or ‘what is it being awarded for?’

An important fact is the rich diversity of the forms in which amateur music making occurs. Another one is the special cultural and social meaning it has for German people.

Instrumentales Laien- und Amateurmusizieren © DUK/Christoph Löffler

It is significant that the Bundestag published a paper with the topic ‚Amateur music making in Germany – survey and presentation of its social and economic role‘ (2008):

In 2007, the German centre for music information (Musikinformationszentrum) counted 29,500 amateur instrumental ensembles involving 739,500 citizens nationwide, 62% of who are aged under 25.

The instrumentalists form groups such as:

  • wind/brass orchestras (18,300)
  • accordion orchestras (3,500)
  • plucked string orchestras (750)
  • Symphony and string orchestras (750)
  • trombone choirs (6,200)
  • Further statistics count 48,500 choirs and 50,000 rock/pop/jazz/folk groups
  • The reason amateur music ensembles retain a high status in society is the diversity of roles they provide people, enjoyment and the love for music assumed to be the most prominent ones. Other benefits include social connections, handing down traditions and values to younger generations and the preservation of cultural heritage, and a way of „linking cultural interest with the wish for commonality, communication and vitality“ (p. 5 Essay Deutscher Bundestag – Wissenschaftliche Dienste 2008)

    One of the amateur scene’s hotspots is undoubtedly Berlin. The large number of amateur symphony orchestras is so significant that many performers and conductors lose track of them! It certainly doesn’t help that in many cases, the names of the orchestras are frustratingly similar. For example Symphonisches Orchester (Humboldt University), Neues Sinfonieorchester Berlin, Das Symphonieorchester, Berliner Symphoniker e. V. (professional!)

    Here is a non-exhaustive list of the amateur orchestras of Berlin, though by now there are likely to be even more in existence. The variety of amateur orchestras lets interested people choose the right level of ensemble for them. There are orchestras that focus more on having fun and adopt a more relaxed approach to rehearsals, as well as orchestras with really high standards and as a consequence require a successful audition to join.

    The nicest thing – not only in Berlin but in every city’s amateur music scene – is that after some time, wherever you participate in a new project, you will always meet people you’ve already played with in former projects. Due to shared interests and of course due to the power of music many of those people become your lifelong friends. The UNESCO committee certainly made the right choice awarding the amateur music scene for its many values and rich diversity!
