Sinfonia Cymru: The Freddie Mercury Project

Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama


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


As part of Festival of Voice 2016, we heard Freddie Mercury’s music performed by a live 23-piece orchestra. Sinfonia Cymru commissioned internationally acclaimed composer and violinist Vlad Maistorovici to create Queen Concertante, new arrangements of iconic Queen tracks, including We Are The ChampionsBohemian RhapsodyKiller Queen and Bijou.

Intricate new settings of Freddie Mercury’s stunning original songs were played with passion by a live orchestra.
