Description: OSM Opening Concert 2016 Tags: OSM Opening Concert

The annual OSM Opening Concert will feature two brilliant South African musicians – world renowned recorder player, Stefan Temmingh, and harpsichordist, Erik Dippenaar.  Temmingh and Dippenaar will present the first half of the recital with works by Corelli, Roman and Geminiani.

For the second half the musicians will collaborate  with  the OSM Camerata (OSMC) under the baton of Xavier Cloete for the world première of the Concerto per Flauto Dolce, Clavicembalo e Orchestra (2016) composed by esteemed South African composer Hendrik Hofmeyr (*1957).  The concerto was commissioned for Temmingh and Dippenaar by the SAMRO Foundation (2015).

Stefan is residing in Germany and forms part of a new young generation of world-class recorder players often compared to the legendary Frans Brüggen.  Erik is currently serving as the artistic director of Camerata Tinta Barocca and has performed as a solo organist with several of SA’s leading orchestras.  He is laureate of the 2006 and 2009 RCM Music Competition.

Xavier Cloete, artistic director of the OSMC, is laureate of the Len van Zyl National Orchestral Conducting Competition (2013) and made his international debut in 2013 with the Mikkeli City Orchestra (Finland).

The OSMC was founded as a flagship chamber ensemble at the beginning of 2012 and made its international debut at the 13th International Conservatoire Festival (St Petersburg, Russia) with a programme by South African composers. In April 2013 the OSMC served as the orchestra for the world première of the Cello Concerto for an African Cellist by SA composer, Hans Huyssen, with SA cellist, Heleen du Plessis as soloist. The CD was released in December 2013 on the New Zealand Classical Music label, ODE Records.

Renowned SA composer Hendrik Hofmeyr collaborated before with Temmingh and Dippenaar when they premièred Hofmeyr's Recorder Concerto (2013) with members of the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra on occasion of the 7th Cape Town International Summer Music Festival.
