Ananda Sukarlan @ Musicasa

*** MUSICASA presents an evening of Ananda Sukarlan vocal works ***

This is the most extensive and intensive concert of Ananda Sukarlan's vocal works to date. 27 chosen students of Musicasa Studio will perform around 50 of Ananda's songs in one night, as a retrospective of his achievement as Indonesia's prominent composer for the human voice. The composer himself will accompany all singers at the piano during this 2-hour concert,... which will take place at Erasmus Huis (Kuningan, Jakarta) on Thursday, November 25th starting at 7 p.m

Musicasa is one of the most important vocal training studio in Indonesia. Headed by conductor Tommy Prabowo and baritone Joseph Kristanto who has intensely collaborated and sung most of Ananda's music involving the baritone, it has produced the best singers of Indonesia today. It was Joseph who has inspired Ananda to write many works involving the baritone voice. His contagious passion for Ananda's music is now passed to his students and the week prior to this concert Ananda was invited to coach them as well as give them a deep insight of his musical and artistic ideas and backgrounds of his vocal works.

Ananda Sukarlan has composed 3 operas, 2 cantatas, dozens of choir works and more than 100 works for voice (solo and duet) with piano, harp or guitar accompaniment. In his blog he has repeatedly admitted that the human voice is his favorite instrument. In this marathon concert one can delve deep into his rich and strange soundworld and his darkest psyche which can only be accessed through his music.

There will be the "greatest hits" such as "Dalam Doaku", "Dalam Sakit" etc., but there are also new works and premieres, such as the songcycles "Dua Sapardi untuk Binu", "A untuk Akis, Alam dan Angkasa" etc.
