The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra will perform with the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra this weekend. Dennis Chua has the details
BE part of a pioneering collaboration when the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) performs alongside its protege, the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (MPYO), at Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (DFP), KLCC, Kuala Lumpur tomorrow (8.30pm) and Sunday (3pm). They will be led by MPO music director Claus Peter Flor.
The MPO will perform the symphonic work Prelude To Khovanshchina composed by Modest P. Mussorgsky. It’s a musical landscape of sunrise over Red Square in Moscow with a Russian folk melody.
Next, the orchestras will perform Sinfonia Concertante In E Flat Major composed by Wolfgang A Mozart. It is a work of sheer beauty with virtuosic manoeuvres.
This work will demonstrate the musical talents of oboist Howard Ng, clarinetist Tan Boon Ping, horn player Song Ching Ling and bassoonist Lim Teng Aik.
The concerts will close with Pyotr I Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 6 In B Minor (Op 74) which is also called Pathetique. In Russian, it refers to something passionate and emotional, whereas in Greek, it has overtones of suffering.
Tickets: RM60. Call 03-2051 7007.
