The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO), under the baton of Mro. Michael Laus presents a tour de force programme with two national premieres: “Piano Concerto No. 2” (1957) by Dmitri Shostakovich featuring Greek pianist Konstantinos Destounis and “Pacific 231” (1923) by Arthur Honegger - both considered to be seminal works of the 20th century. The first half of the programme includes two compositions by Maltese composers: “Elegy” by Christopher Muscat and “The Forbidden” by Ruben Zahra. The second half of the programme is dedicated to Beethoven's 6th Symphony, known as the Pastoral Symphony. Set in five movements, this is one of Beethoven’s most popular works, filled with beautiful melodies with each movement depicting a different scene from nature.

This event is organised by Festivals Malta as part of the Malta International Arts Festival. This event is in collaboration with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra.
