“O be silent, world, with your blaring lies,
Do not disturb the truth of this sleep!”
— Die Stimme des Kindes
In confusion and weariness, we are pulled towards the celestial innocence of sleep and respite: where a mysterious world beguiles and enchants us. The Philharmonic Chamber Choir (TPCC) is thrilled to present a selection of German a cappella works exploring the themes of Chaos and the Divine Rest, in collaborate with distinguished choral conductor Manfred Schreier (Germany).
Come join TPCC as we embark on an exploration of modern German choral pieces: from the solace of Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen (I am Lost to the World) by Gustav Mahler; to the warmth of Die Stimme des Kindes (The Voice of the Child) by Jaakko Mäntyjärvi; through the tumult of Clytus Gottwald’s stunning arrangement of Die Vorstellung des Chaos from Joseph Haydn’s Die Schöpfung (The Creation).
Manfred Schreier has been a distinguished lecturer and professor of Choral and Orchestral conducting: having held posts in numerous institutions including the Musikhochschule Trossingen; the Folkwang Hochschule Essen; and the Hochschule für Musik Freiburg, where he is currently lecturing. He has also held posts of Choir Master at the Stuttgart Markus Church and Stiftskirche (Stuttgart). As the founder of numerous ensembles, including the Marcusvocalensemble Stuttgart, Musik der Jarhrhunderte, and Euroregion T-KultureV, Manfred Schreier has been an active proponent of contemporary and avant-garde choral repertoire within Stuttgart and in Germany. He has also collaborated extensively with other established groups —including the International Bach Academy; the Süddeutscher Rundfunk Choirs and Orchestras; the Radio Orchestras of Stuttgart, Saarbrücken, Hamburg, and Frankfurt; as well as Clytus Gottwald’s Schola Cantorum, of which he was a member.
This is an exceptional opportunity to experience Singapore’s arguably most outstanding a cappella chamber choir conducted by Manfred Schreier, in a programme of rarely performed and heard German choral gems that will enrapture you within the Silent Realm in Majesty.
