Robbie Williams and Guy Chambers Support Britain's Richard Davison


Richard, Joost & Clark

Dressage fans around the world will soon be letting rip to music made famous by global superstar Robbie Williams using songs written by himself and legendary song writer Guy Chambers. They will provide the new blockbuster dressage freestyle for Great Britain’s Olympic dressage rider Richard Davison in the run-up to London 2012.

Some of the music duo’s most famous songs, such as ‘Let me entertain you’ and ‘Rock DJ’, will feature including a special introduction with Robbie’s vocals while Guy plays the melodies on his classic Steinway.  Under conductor Clark Rundell, The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra’s interpretation guarantees a massive and beautiful feel.

Holland’s Joost Peters, who has been responsible for creating the world’s finest Kurs to date – including the one used for the world record breaking black stallion Totilas – was selected to pull the whole project together. “The music of Robbie and Guy make this the best kur dressage has ever heard – it is simply fantastic and takes the sport to another level. The beautiful melodies and beat have a real get-up and dance effect. These guys are legends – listening to Guy and the orchestra playing my arrangement has been a surreal experience for me” described Peters.


Richard & Hiscox Artemis

Davison, aiming for his fourth Olympics and Britain’s dressage team captain, will ride the 12 year bay gelding Hiscox Artemis to the composition. He explained “This has been the brainchild of Hiscox Artemis’ co-owner the Countess of Derby; she has made it all happen and how lucky am I? Both Artemis and I love the music – it has got a great beat and really makes him rock.”

Speaking on behalf of Robbie Williams, IE Music said “Hiscox Artemis’ expressive movement fits the dynamics and beat of the music perfectly. It would be wonderful for Robbie to see Richard and Artemis perform live to his songs  – and what better setting could there be than in the Olympic arena on home soil.”

Davison will first unveil the Kur though at Holland’s leading indoor competition at S’Hertogenbosch next week. That is the final qualifying opportunity for riders to gain a ticket for the FEI’s Reem Acra World Cup Final in Leipzig in April. The series is the flagship of the sports dressage to music competitions. “It will be great to have one public outing before the Final but of course next year’s Olympic arena is the ultimate venue for this piece” said Davison.
