Flights of Fantasy, a Classical Concert With Internationally Acclaimed Pianist Tedd Joselson

Called Flights of Fantasy, the concert features the world premiere of Manu Martin’s Lim Fantasy of Companionship for Piano and Orchestra (Lim Fantasy)The masterful composition, first recorded at Abbey Road Studios by the London Symphony Orchestra in November 2019 under the baton of Arthur Fagen with Tedd Joselson on the piano, will be held for one-night only on 8th June 2022 at the iconic Esplanade Concert Hall. 
It is also a celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of iconic pianist Tedd Joselson who returns to the public stage for a historic performance. The concert will include piano concertos by Tchaikovsky and Brahms performed by Tedd Joselson and accompanied by Musicians’ Initiative. Alvin Seville Arumugam, music director of Musicians’ Initiative, will be the principal conductor at this concert.
Inspired by the multiple award-winning animation ‘ALAN the Musical’, the composition of Lim Fantasy was conceived by co-creators Susan Lim and Christina Tan. It is cast in six acts and draws its inspiration from 15 original songs composed for the musical. Lim Fantasy explores the potential of inanimate life and how these factors may influence new concepts of companionship. The accompanying short film “Fantasy of Companionship Between Human and Inanimate” has won numerous awards in international film festivals.
As BBC Radio London commented in its ‘The Late Show’ on 21st April 2021, Lim Fantasy is “…absolutely ground-breaking!” “A song isn’t just here for a moment; there is a timelessness when you have such exquisite composition as this…. this is going to last for years to come!”
Flights of Fantasy has been planned since 2020 but was unable to be staged with pandemic restrictions. The pandemic has seen a drastic withdrawal of all cultural activities locally. Many local musicians are eager to return and share the beauty of their art form with the rest of the world. Singapore is gearing towards progressively re-staging MICE and cultural events. Flights of Fantasy is poised to become a landmark cultural event on the global classical music circuit as the tourism and cultural sectors re-open. The local arts and culture sector needs support from the community to regain its footing and bolster confidence after a 2-year hiatus.
Musicians’ Initiative is one of the first musical establishments in Singapore to step up in organising a gala concert on this scale and reviving the arts and culture scene since the easing of safe management measures. It is leading the charge by charting new frontiers and setting the symphonic pace as the country moves into an endemic phase.

With a spectacular lineup for all ages, it will be an enchanting evening not to be missed.

TIME: 7:30PM

Tickets can be bought online or at any Sistic outlet.
