앙상블 디토 Ensemble DITTO

 

DITTO = 클래식에 공감하다.

DITTO는 ‘공감하는 클래식’을 미션으로 하는 브랜드 네임

밝은 클래식 음악을 뜻하는 ‘디베르티멘토(Divertimento)'의 약자이자

일상 대화 속에서 나오는 ‘동감해!’ 의 공감을 뜻한다.

 

DITTO, 클래식 음악의 새로운 역사

한국 클래식 음악계의 새로운 아이콘으로 자리매김한 앙상블 디토는 2007년 시작되었다. 비올리스트 리처드 용재 오닐이 더 많은 한국 관객에게 실내악을 소개하고자 시작, 이제 실내악을 넘어 보다 많은 사람과 '클래식을 공감'하는 것을 그 미션으로 한다.

 

앙상블 디토는 데뷔 때부터 음악뿐만 아니라 화려한 마케팅, 혁신적인 시도로 많은 화제를 낳았다. 차별화된 프로덕션 제작과 공격적인 프로모션을 통해 아티스트의 다양한 모습을 소개했고, 이로서 청중을 더욱 열광하게 하였다. 드라마 곡 연주, 홍대 앞 클래식 연주회, 해외 화보촬영, 뮤직 비디오 제작 등 클래식 연주 단체로서는 유례없는 파격적인 활동으로 더욱 많은 주목을 받을 수 있었다.

 

앙상블 디토는 2007년 시즌1을 시작했으며, 2009년부터는 앙상블 디토가 주축이 된 ‘디토 페스티벌’을 열고 있다. 앙상블 디토의 리사이틀은 페스티벌 하이라이트이자 피날레로, 2012년까지 리사이틀은 모두 매진을 기록하는 폭발적인 인기를 누리고 있다. 더불어 2012년에는 모던&컨템포러리 음악 공연 'Different DITTO'로 후앙 루오, 스티브 라이히, 메시앙을 연주, 평단의 극찬까지 끌어냈다.

 

디토의 패밀리 콘서트 역시 새로운 시도로 주목받는 프로덕션이다. 미디어 아티스트와 함께 클래식과 비주얼 퍼포먼스의 조합을 기본으로 한다. 이 시리즈는 2009년 카니발(생상스의 ‘동물의 사육제’), 2010년 디토 오디세이(우주), 2011년 디토 올림픽(스포츠), 2012년 디토 오디세이 2(바다와 우주)로 이어지고 있으며 2012년 오디세이는 '백야'와 함께 여수엑스포 특별부문에 초청받은 유일한 클래식 공연이기도 하다.

 

10, 20대, 더 나아가 일반 대중을 클래식 공연장으로 모이게 하며 2008, 2009년 예술의전당 유료관객 1위를 기록, 매년 10개 도시 순회공연을 모두 매진시키는 기염을 토하며 끊임없는 관심과 주목을 받아온 앙상블 디토는 2010년, 활동 영역을 일본으로 확장했다. 2010년 6월 도쿄국제포럼과 오사카 심포니홀 공연을 공식 발표하는 기자회견을 펼쳤으며, 전체 7,000석을 매진시키며 세계 2위 규모를 자랑하는 일본 클래식 시장에 당당히 진출함으로써 한국 연주자와 한국 클래식 콘텐츠의 더 큰 가능성을 제시했다. 2011년에는 도쿄 기오이 홀에서 펼쳐진 한일문화교류 공연에 초청받아 문화교류 사절 역할도 소화했다. 2012년에는 아시아 최대의 클래식 페스티벌, 일본 '열광의 날'에 초청받아 사흘간 공연을 펼쳤다.

Ensemble DITTO

DITTO is to identify with classical music.
DITTO is a brand with a mission to create "classical music to which one can relate".
DITTO is also short for "divertimento," lighthearted classical music, and is an expression of agreement in daily conversation.

 

DITTO, A Pioneer in the History of Classical Music
Ensemble DITTO, now recognized as a new icon in the classical music industry of Korea, was founded in 2007. Originally established by violist Richard Yongjae O'Neill in order to introduce more Koreans to chamber music, the formation of Ensemble DITTO varies depending on the repertoire, with violist Richard Yongjae O'Neill, violinists Stefan Jackiw, Daniel Chong (the leader of Parker Quartet), and cellist Michael Nicolas comprising the core members of the group. The mission of DITTO, revised to match its success, now stands "to connect and relate to audiences through not only chamber music, but classical music as a whole."

 

With its performance, prominent marketing and innovative projects, Ensemble DITTO instantly attracted public attention following its debut. The artists of the ensemble were introduced to the world through carefully-planned production and aggressive promotion, which gathered an enthusiastic audience. Performing soundtracks of popular soap operas, classical music on the hip streets of Hongdae, releasing music videos and albums from photo shoots in foreign cities, the ensemble garnered the attention of the masses with its unprecedented moves, never before attempted by a group of classical musicians.

 

Ensemble DITTO began its first season in 2007 and since 2009, the ensemble has been performing at the annual DITTO festival titled after its name with numerous other musicians. Each season of the festival ends with the ever popular finale recital of Ensemble DITTO, which has been received by a full-house audience at the Seoul Arts Center Concert Hall every season through 2013 for eight consecutive years. Since 2012, the ensemble has been receiving critical acclaim performing a modern and contemporary repertoire, including Huang Ruo, Steve Reich, George Crumb, John Adams and Olivier Messiaen in a concert entitled 'Different DITTO.'

 

The family concerts of the DITTO Festival are also noted as innovative productions as they join media artists with musicians to combine visual art with musical performance. The family concert series began in season 2009 with 'Carnival' (Saint-Saens, Le Carnaval des animaux), followed by 'DITTO Odyssey' (Space) in 2010, 'DITTO Olympics' (Sports) in 2011, and 'DITTO Odyssey 2' (Sea and Space) in 2012, which, along with 'White Night,' were the only classical music programs invited to the special performances session of the Yeosu Expo 2012.

 

Attracting not only those in their teens and twenties, Ensemble DITTO’s concerts set a record number of tickets sold, outnumbering that of all other performances at the Seoul Arts Center in 2008 and 2009, and annually touring ten cities throughout the country with sold-out performances. In June of 2010, DITTO held a press conference to announce its concerts at the Tokyo International Forum and Osaka Symphony Hall, and performed full-house before 7,000 people, making a strong debut in a country with the second largest classical music industry in the world and proving the potential of Korean musicians and classical music contents of Korea. In the fall of the same year, Ensemble DITTO was invited to perform at the Korea-China-Japan Culture Shuttle Concert, organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Korea and the Korea Foundation where young musicians from Korea, Japan and China gathered to perform together under the name, DITTO. In the following year, Ensemble DITTO was invited to perform at the Tokyo Kioi Hall Korea-Japan Cultural Exchange Concert as cultural ambassadors, and in 2012 the ensemble was invited to the largest classical music festival in Asia, 'La Folle Journée' for a three-day performance.

앙상블 디토 - 틀을 깬다. 대중과 호흡한다. 앙상블 디토는 종종 '클래식의 아이돌'로 불리기도 한다. 대중음악의 아이돌과 단순 비교할 수는 없겠지만, 클래식 음악계에서는 이례적이라 할 만큼 디토가 선풍적인 인기를 누리고 있는 것만큼은 부인할 수 없다. – SBS

입장부터 파격이었다....생경하고 난해할 법한 현대음악으로 연주회를 구성했는데도, 매진을 이룬 객석에서는 단원들의 입장과 동시에 환호가 터져 나왔다. 연주자들에 대한 든든한 팬덤(fandom)을 바탕으로 현대음악이라는 '쓴 약'에 아이돌이라는 '당의정(糖衣錠)'을 입힌 디토의 전략은 무척 영리해 보였다. -조선일보

스토리로 성공한 클래식 아이돌 그룹 `디토`

2007년 결성된 이 그룹의 공연장은 늘 뜨겁다. 10~30대 여성들이 열광적으로 반응한다. 대중 음악 아이돌 못지 않은 인기를 누리는 덕분에 올해 상반기 서울 예술의전당 콘서트홀 유료 티켓 판매 1위에 올랐다. 2008년, 2009년에도 1위를 차지했다.
비인기 장르인 실내악 음악회의 이례적인 매진 행진에서 디토의 특별한 가치와 위력을 찾을 수 있다. 그것도 정통 클래식 음악으로 승부한다. 대중 음악과 적절히 섞은 크로스오버가 아니다. 객석을 꽉 메운 젊은 관객들은 클래식 음악의 미래가 어둡지 않다는 것을 증명한다. 디토의 팬들은 거의 매년 공연장을 찾을 정도로 충성도가 높다.
`클래식 음악은 대중과 거리가 멀다`는 편견을 날려버린 디토. 과연 그들의 성공 비결은 무엇일까. - 매일경제

Ensemble DITTO, a phenomenal icon of the Korean classical music scene, will be touring Asia in September and October, 2015. With their performance, prominent marketing and innovative projects, Ensemble DITTO instantly attracted the public’s attention following their debut. The ensemble’s artists were introduced to the world through carefully-planned production and aggressive promotion, which has gathered an enthusiastic audience. And now, DITTO will start their monumental tour in Asia with the hottest repertoire from their album ‘DITTO HITS’.

Ensemble DITTO – Break the mold regarding classical music. Keep in step with the audience. Ensemble DITTO is often referred to as the ‘idols of classical music’. It wouldn’t be fair to make a simple comparison with idols of popular music but within the field of classical music, we cannot deny the fact that DITTO is gathering exceptional and sensational popularity.
- SBS

Even their entrance to the stage was unconventional. The program consisted of contemporary music that could have been unfamiliar and difficult but still, the concert was sold out and there were cheers from the audience the minute the ensemble entered stage. DITTO’s strategy, with reliable fandom as a foundation and the ‘sugarcoated pill’ idol image on the ‘bitter medicine’ that contemporary music is, seemed extremely clever. – Chosun Daily Newspaper

Classical Idol Group DITTO, Succeeds with Having a Story
- Maeil Economy Daily Newspaper

The concert halls of this ensemble, formed in 2007, are always heated. Teenage girls to women in their thirties react enthusiastically. Because of the popularity just as high as idols of popular music, DITTO has been ranked first for Seoul Arts Center’s concert hall ticket sales for the first half of the year. They were also ranked first in 2008 and 2009.

We can see the value and power of DITTO from their sold out concerts for even the unpopular chamber music. They contend for victory with only authentic classical music. It is not crossover music which is often well mixed with popular music. The young audiences filling up the concert hall seats prove that the future of classical music is not dark. And DITTO’s fans are loyal, they return to the concerts every year.

DITTO has broken the prejudice ‘classical music is distant from the public’. What is their secret to success?

On the basis of course are good playing skills. It’s not just the good looks. Along with violist Richard O’Neill, violinists Stefan Jackiw and Daniel Chong, pianist Ji-Yong, and cellist Michael Nicolas are all recognized musicians. Others that have been with DITTO in the past, including pianists Dong-Hyek Lim and Yun Su Lee, violinists Johnny Lee and Shunske Sato, cellist Patrick Jee, double bassist DaXun Zhang, clarinetist Han Kim, oboist Kyung Ham, and more, were all very distinguished musicians.

DITTO, which began with fresh new faces, initially received great attention because of the story of O´Neill. Jae - Ock Chung, the representative of CREDIA, had known O´Neill even before he became famous through the KBS TV documentary program ‘Screening Humanity’ in 2004. Chung had met O’Neill when O’Neill came to Korea from New York as a member of the Sejong Soloists to perform at the Great Mountains Music Festival. O’Neill’s teacher Hyo Kang, a professor at the Julliard School, introduced O’Neill to Chung.

O’Neill’s mother was intellectually handicapped and adopted to the U.S. during the Korean War. O’Neill appeared on ‘Screening Humanity’ with hopes of finding his mother’s family in Korea and the sad but humane story touched the hearts of viewers. With his long, crane-like legs and soft appearance, when he played sad melodies such as John Dowland’s ‘Old Tears’ and Vitali’s ‘Chaconne’, there were audience members that were moved to tears. His story especially touched the hearts of women from their forties to sixties and their maternal affection, and he was able to broaden his fan base. Later on as he overcame his underprivileged background, he was appointed as a professor of UCLA and people were able to entertain hope through his story.

His albums ‘Lachrymae’ and ‘Winter Sonata’, released through the world-class album label Deutsche Grammophon(DG), has blown off steam by selling more than 100,000 each. O’Neill has entered the classical music scene as a ‘blue chip’ and the net profit for his concerts are assessed to be much higher than the concerts of famous orchestras that are high in production costs.

With O’Neill playing the key role, the growth speed of DITTO has been fast. The marketing method was different from existing classical musicians. They made an attempt to capture people in their twenties and thirties, people that were the main ticket-buyers of concerts in general. The marketing method for big stars of popular culture was mainly applied.

Firstly, a stylist was hired to do image-making. DITTO took photos and released a photo essay book in 2010 titled ‘Classic Bohemian’ (Munhakdongne Publishing Group). A music video was also made and in December of 2013, DITTO raised awareness by participating in a real-time live broadcasting concert for the internet portal site NAVER.

DITTO has also engaged in a street concert to approach a much broader audience. On June 8, they held ‘Guerilla Concert – Street Bach’ at IFC Mall in Yeouido, Seoul. O’Neill and the DITTO Chamber Orchestra caught the ears of passersby with Bach’s ‘Brandenburg Concerto’. Dancer Boram Kim performed contemporary dance to the music of violinist Zia Shin to raise the excitement of the street performance to the maximum level.

As DITTO’s popularity became higher, they were appointed as the model for the Lotte Department Store (2009) and men’s clothing SIEG (2011). Derivative products such as DITTO Piano, DITTO Jeans, and more followed.

Also, another characteristic of the ensemble is that they have the musicians perform solo actively in order to raise the reputation of the group. The effect is doubled when DITTO comes together. This year was also a great success. The DITTO Festival in June was such success that encore concerts were booked right afterwards at Seoul Arts Center.
