05.22.11 [remarkable] Rain & Vogler – Dresdner Musikfestspiele

english translation:


Dresdner Neueste Nachrichten – 21./22.05.2011 – S.10 – Stephan Wiegand

Within One’s Reach

Cultural meeting in the opera. Rain is the popular description of the fifth element.

It’s not obvious at the first sight how Rain influences the occidental High Culture. The Korean Star seems easygoing relaxed amused and plays with his talent. A glance beyond his facade is absolutely impossible; even in the opera, a place for high culture , the auditorium has to search vainly for seriousness. The 29 years old singer, actor and pop star with excellent love of entertainment was flirting constantly with his audience: With his numerous Asian fans, who were confident with every single line of his lyrics, and with critical visitors of the opera. Everyone who wanted to get involved with it, fell for his charm. That was also the self-feeding contrast program, a glance to Asia, a walk on a golden bridge, which the artistic director of the ‘Musikfestspiele’ (music festival) Jan Vogler intended and who enjoyed every single moment of this amusing mass migration.

Approaches like ‘Pop Meets Classic’ has been strained repeatedly in the past few years. In most cases the singer used to buy the suitable famous orchestra for this kind of variety, the musicians took over the part of the side decoration. An attraction, which is meanwhile predictable and does not surprise anymore. A symbiosis of Rain and Vogler is from its approach a completely different one. In this case a cellist discovered ‘the pop culture’ for himself and is furthermore careful enough not to leave behind any individuality.

I think his German fans are such lovely persons.”

When he finished performing, the audience gave him a standing ovation, in addition, they even shouted, “Encore!” Just then, I felt a lump in my throat..I was totally unprepared for their response because I thought that the concert hall would have a quiet atmosphere. I can’t believe that we performed in the presence of such a throng of his eager fans…”

05.19.11 [Newsen] Rain becomes the first Korean to participate in German Dresden Music Festival

Becoming the first person from Korea to participate in German Dresden Music Festival on May 19th, world star Rain (Jung Ji Hoon) will show new performances to the public at Semperoper (opera house) where the festival will be held.

According to Rain’s agent, “Rain’s come to be on stage at the Dresden Music Festival as he’s been asked to perform with ‘Jan Vogler’, a world-class cellist and executive director for the festival.”

It is extremely unusual for a pop singer to be on stage at the Dresden Music Festival, and this has been the first try of ‘Jan Vogler’ who has a lot of concern for Oriental culture since he changed its original theme while placing emphasis on a reversal in international aspects.

Meanwhile, even though they’ve decided to break with the long tradition and tried something new where pop singer Rain’ll perform with the symphony orchestra, the concert tickets are known to be sold out.

05.13.11 [KoreaEconomy] A joint concert between Vogler and Rain will be held

A joint concert between Vogler and Rain will be held during “Dresden Music Festival” sponsored by MCM.

German “Dresden Music Festival” which starts May 18, will be held sponsored by MCM, a global luxury brand.

On May 19, a joint concert between ‘Jan Vogler’, executive director for the festival and German world-class cellist, and Rain, Korean pop star and actor selected twice as one of Time’s top 100 most influential people in the world, will be held.

We can say ‘Jan Vogler’ and Rain represent Western music and Oriental music, respectively. For this reason, it looks like many people have lots of expectations for and interests in the concert.
