Catch the en­core of the grand fi­nale via On De­mand with your con­nected box, or on Astro on the Go. THE MALAYSIAN Phil­har­monic Orches­tra (MPO) will present a spe­cial con­cert as a tribute to com­posers Robert Schu­mann and An­ton Bruck­ner at the De­wan Fil­har­monik Petronas at 8.30pm, tonight and to­mor­row.

MPO will fea­ture one of Schu­mann’s most pop­u­lar con­cer­tos with pi­anist David Fray, re­garded as the most orig­i­nal Bach player of his gen­er­a­tion.

Pi­ano Con­certo in A mi­nor was first per­formed in 1845 by Schu­mann’s pi­anist wife Clara.

MPO will also per­form Bruck­ner’s Sym­phony No.4 in E flat. Nick­named Ro­man­tic, this mas­ter­piece of­fers a sense of spa­cious­ness, time­less­ness, breadth and ce­les­tial majesty.

All con­certs will be con­ducted by Con­stantin Trinks ( above, left), who re­ceived much recog­ni­tion for the Euro­pean pre­miere of Tan Dun’s The First Em­peror.

This sea­son will see his re­turn to Mu­nich for Cosi fan tutte and Ara­bella, as well as con­duct­ing new pro­duc­tions of Salome in Stras­bourg and Wag­ner’s Ring in Vi­enna.

In ad­di­tion to the con­certs, Fray ( above, right) will be hold­ing a recital on Sun­day at 3pm at DFP of the much-loved pi­ano works by Johann Se­bas­tian Bach and Jo­hannes Brahms.

On Nov 15, there will be a cham­ber con­cert fea­tur­ing works by Joseph Haydn and Jo­hannes Brahms.
