MCYO: The Queen Symphony

Showcasing the Philharmonic Orchestra, accompanied by the National Philharmonic Chorale, this performance takes on Kashif’s stunning Queen Symphony.

Tolga Kashif’s the Queen Symphony is a work comprising six movements based on well-known melodies from the rock band Queen. These include “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “We Will Rock You”, “We Are the Champions” and “Who Wants to Live Forever”. Some critics have compared the overall effect with the work of John Williams, notably his Star Wars score. Others have considered the choral elements of the Queen Symphony to be a nod to the rock band’s own lavish tendencies, in addition to Kashif’s spell as musical director of the London Amadeus Choir. The piece has been performed regularly and in 2004 received US and Dutch premières. The tonal language of the symphony is diverse and draws on much of the Western classical tradition, with Kashif himself listing influences as diverse as medieval music, Romantic music, and opera.

MCYO’s string orchestras (Preparatory Strings & Chamber Strings) will open the concert, featuring Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2 with Venezuelan Flutist Loidmary Perenguez.

Loidmary Perenguez is a winner of the National Flute Competition in Venezuela. From 2003 to 2016 Ms. Perenguez was the first flute of the Caracas Youth Symphony Orchestra, performing with conductors such as Gustavo Dudamel, Claudio Abbado, Dietrich Paredes, Rodolfo Sanglimbeni, and Leon Bostein.
