Friday, February 05, 2010
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra pioneers a new experience featuring the Godfather of British House, DJ Danny Rampling.
20 February 2010 is the date when the BSO rewrites the classical music rulebook and performs as part of a club night in a performance that showcases the awesome talents of ex Radio One DJ Danny Rampling, the Godfather of British House music; the BSO under conductor Kirill Karabits, plus a special guest appearance by DJ composer Gabriel Prokofiev.
Club K at the BIC Solent Hall fuses the best of classical music and British House, in what promises to be a unique night of classical clubbing.
The first set... Gabriel Prokofiev - hailed as one of Britain ’s hottest producers of garage music; and a known promoter of classical music in a club setting. As the grandson of Sergei Prokofiev he has a classical music background which is the foundation for all his DJ work, enabling him to combine dance music with his classical roots to give a unique contemporary twist to the sounds he creates.
The second set... Karabits and the BSO with a performance of classical and contemporary music, featuring the rhythmic beats of Beethoven, Khachaturian and (of course) (Sergei) Prokofiev. This is a complete redesign of the concert experience, as the BSO performs in a nightclub setting in its quest to make classical music accessible to all. And the party reaches a climax with...
The third set... Danny Rampling - the Godfather of British House and founder of the legendary Summer of Love, who will play two hours of the music that made him famous to a generation of clubbers across the world. Danny’s funky house set is the climax of this incredible evening, which will last until the early hours and feature Rampling’s pioneering style of dance music.
