CLAS­SI­CAL MAS­tEr­PIECES WItH tHE MPO De­wan Fil­har­monik Petronas Level 2, tower 2 Petronas twin tow­ers Jalan Am­pang Kuala Lumpur City Cen­tre Kuala Lumpur tel: ( 03) 2331 7007

tO­MOr­rOW & SAtUr­DAY: The Malaysian Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra ( MPO) will con­tinue to daz­zle fans of clas­si­cal mu­sic when it presents two uniquely star­tling mu­si­cal works.

The MPO will open the con­certs with Mozart’s Sym­phony No. 25 in G mi­nor with pathos, pas­sion, bit­ter­ness and a feel­ing of rest­less ag­i­ta­tion per­vad­ing this mu­sic. This work is Mozart’s most per­sonal, in­tense and emo­tion­ally charged score. The mood of dark strug­gle and de­spair dom­i­nates the cen­tral sec­tion whilst the fi­nal move­ment gives a bril­liant fe­roc­ity that drives the sym­phony to its stir­ring con­clu­sion.

Then comes Shostakovich’s Sym­phony No. 11, which is subti­tled “The Year 1905”. This is one of a dozen pro­gram­matic works that deals with the var­i­ous events in Rus­sian and Soviet his­tory. The work refers to a peace­ful demon­stra­tion to pe­ti­tion aid that turned into a “Bloody Sun­day”.

All works will be con­ducted by the now- fa­mil­iar Hans Graf, who has col­lab­o­rated with renowned or­ches­tras such as the Vi­enna, St Peters­burg and Lon­don Phil­har­mon­ics, Leipzig Ge­wand­haus, Bu­dapest Fes­ti­val, Dan­ish Ra­dio and Syd­ney Sym­phonies.

Tick­ets are priced from RM60 to RM150. For more info, call the num­ber above, visit www. mpo. com. my, or e- mail dfp_ box­of­fice@ petronas. com. my for ticket book­ings. Time: 8.30pm.
