Directed by Vlad Maistorovici

The Freddie Mercury Project: classic Queen songs reimagined for a 23-piece chamber orchestra.

Freddie Mercury. Icon. Innovator. Musical maverick. Cultural legend.

In this exciting collaboration, leading Welsh chamber orchestra Sinfonia Cymru commissioned internationally acclaimed composer and violinist Vlad Maistorovici to create Queen Concertante, new arrangements of iconic Queen songs including We Are The Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody, Killer Queen and Bijou. Upbeat and stirring, this is your chance to experience Freddie Mercury’s brilliant original compositions played with passion by a live 23-piece chamber orchestra.

Maverick composer-performer Vlad Maistorovici takes on three roles in The Freddie Mercury Project: conductor, violin soloist and composer. One of the most exciting artists of his generation to emerge from Romania, he performs internationally as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician in repertoire ranging from classical to modern. His compositions have been championed by world-class orchestras and artists.

Innovative orchestra meets musical icon.

Ac yntau’n un o’r artistiaid mwyaf cyffrous yn ei genhedlaeth i ddod o Romania, mae’n perfformio’n rhyngwladol fel unawdwr, datgeiniad a cherddor siambr mewn repertoire sy’n amrywio o’r clasurol i’r modern.
