Seperti sudah diduga, Euphoria film Bohemian Rhapsody yang menceritakan kisah perjalanan QUEEN besutan sutradara Bryan Singer, ditulis oleh Anthony McCarten dengan produser Graham King dan mantan manajer QUEEN, Jim Beach dengan Rami Malek yang memerankan Freddy Mercury dengan akting cemerlang berlangsung cukup lama. Selain memang karena QUEEN merupakan band rock yang fenomenal, lagu-lagunya juga sangat terkenal dan sangat membekas di hati publik, bukan saja penggemar musik rock tetapi juga penganut genre musik lainnya.Hal ini mungkin disebabkan karena musik-musik QUEEN, meskipun beraliran rock, tetapi tetap memiliki sentuhan klasik dan pop, sehingga penggemarnya beragam, tidak hanya dari kalangan rock, tetapi juga dari berbagai genre, baik tua maupun muda.

QUEEN sendiri adalah sebuah band rock Inggris yang dibentuk di London tahun 1970 dengan formasi Freddie Mercury (penyanyi utama dan piano), Brian May (lead guitar dan vocal), Roger Taylor (drums dan vocal), dan John Deacon (bass guitar). Karya-karya awal mereka dipengaruhi oleh aliran rock progresif, hard rock dan heavy metal, tetapi lama kelamaan mereka mulai menghasilkan karya-karya yang lebih konvensional dan enak didengarkan di radio dengan mengusung gaya arena rock dan pop rock ke dalam musik mereka.

Dalam album News of The World di tahun 1977, mereka melantunkan We Will Rock You dan We Are the Champions yang kelak menjadi lagu kebangsaan pada acara-acara olahraga. Penampilan mereka tahun 1985 pada konser Live Aid disebut-sebut sebagai yang terbesar dalam sejarah musik rock oleh berbagai media musik. Konser terakhir QUEEN dengan formasi lengkap digelar di Inggris bulan Agustus 1986; dan tahun 1991, Freddie Mercury meninggal dunia karena bronchopneumonia yang merupakan komplikasi AIDS, dan Deacon pensiun tahun 1997. Sejak itu May dan Taylor tetap tampil dengan nama QUEEN bersama Paul Rodgers dan Adam Lambertas sebagai penyanyi dalam tour-tour mereka selanjutnya. Lirik lagu “We Are the Champions” yang sederhana namun sangat inspiratif dalam menumbuhkan semangat untuk tidak menyerah hingga akhir masa yang berbunyi …. :

“We are the champions, my friends.. And we’ll keep on fighting ’till the end.
We are the champions….
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause We are the champions of the world…”

…membuat Jakarta Concert Orchestra mengangkatnya menjadi judul konser di awal tahun 2019, dimana kembali Jakarta Concert Orchestra bersama ‘World Award Winning Choirs’: Batavia Madrigal Singers & The Resonanz Children’s Choir dengan bintang tamu Farman Purnama, Fitri Muliati, Husein Idol, Lisa Depe, Michelle Siswanto (biola) dan Elwin Hendrijanto (piano) akan tampil dibawah pimpinan konduktor Avip Priatna membawakan serangkaian lagu-lagu dari grup band rock asal Inggris yang mendunia ini, memperpanjang kesempatan bernostalgia para penikmat musik di tanah air dan melepas rasa rindunya kepada QUEEN dengan karya-karya mereka yang akan digelar hari Sabtu, 19 Januari 2019 bertempat di Ciputra Artpreneur, Jakarta.

Sebuah pertunjukan yang sayang untuk dilewatkan, sebagai pemompa semangat di awal tahun 2019 untuk prestasi yang lebih hebat bagi semua, ‘Cause we are the champions of the world!

 

As expected, we are witnessing the euphoria of the Bohemian Rhapsody film that tells the journey story of QUEEN directed by Bryan Singer, written by Anthony McCarten with producer Graham King and former QUEEN Manager Jim Beach with Rami Malek who plays Freddy Mercury.

 Aside from the fact that QUEEN is a phenomenal rock band, the songs are also very famous and imprinted in the public’s hearts, not only to rock music fans but fans of other musical genres. This may be due to QUEEN’s music, even though rock, but with a touch of classical and pop appeal to diverse fans, both the young and old generations, not only from rock circles but also from various genres.

 QUEEN is a British rock band formed in London in 1970 comprising Freddie Mercury (lead singer and piano), Brian May (lead guitar and vocal), Roger Taylor (drums and vocal), and John Deacon (bass guitar). Their early works were influenced by rock, hard rock and heavy metal but after a long time they began to produce works that were more conventional and radio-friendly.

In their 1977 “News of The World” album, they recorded “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” which later became anthems at sports events. Their performance in 1985 at the Live Aid concert was mentioned as one of the best live performances in the history of rock music by various music media. The final concert of the QUEEN with its complete formation was held in England in August 1986. In  1991, Freddie Mercury died of broncho-pneumonia which was a complication of AIDS, while Deacon retired in 1997. Since then, May and Taylor have appeared with the name QUEEN with Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert as singers on their subsequent tours. The lyrics of the song “We Are the Champions” are simple but very inspiring in fostering enthusiasm for not giving up until the end of the period that reads … :

“We are the champions, my friends.. And we’ll keep on fighting ’till the end.
We are the champions….
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause We are the champions of the world…”

The Jakarta Concert Orchestra is using it as a concert title in early 2019, when it returns with the award-winning Choirs’: Batavia Madrigal Singers & The Resonanz Children’s Choir, with guest stars Farman Purnama, Fitri Muliati, Husein Idol, Lisa Depe, Michelle Siswanto (violin) and Elwin Hendrijanto (piano). They will perform under conductor leader Avip Priatna to bring a series of songs from this worldwide British rock band, extending the opportunity to nostalgic music lovers in the country.- This will be held on Saturday, January 19th , 2019 at Ciputra Artpreneur, Jakarta.

This is a show that should not be missed, as a driving force in early 2019 for greater achievements for all, ‘Cause “we are the champions of the world”!
