    Rahman gets a German flavour

    Rahman gets a German flavour

    The Babelsberg Orchestra and students of Rahman’s KM Music Conservatory will serve up orchestral versions of tunes from the music maestro’s films
    Did we need any particular reason to celebrate the genius of our own Oscar-winner AR Rahman? No? Thought not. The revered German orchestra Babelsberg is hitting Indian shores for a concert tour featuring the music of the Chennai Chopin. Commencing January 20 in Mumbai, the ‘Germany and India: 2011-2012: Infinite Opportunities’ concert tour will move on to Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata and Bangalore. Fittingly, the tour will celebrate two centenaries – that of Babelsberg and of Indian cinema. As you can imagine, this won’t be your standard concert with star playback singers. Rather, German musicians alongside students of Rahman’s KM Conservatory will serve up orchestral versions of Rahman tunes from Bombay, Swades, The Rising: Ballad of Mangal Panday, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Roja, Endhiran, Dil Se and many others. The eclectic choice is thanks to Rahman collaborator Matt Dunkley. Click here to read more

While it was difficult choosing from them, I wish I had got a chance to compose new music for the performance.” Click here to read more
