Description

Concert dedicated to Joe Curmi il-Pusè

 

Featuring:

Malta Philharmonic Orchestra

Lawrence Renes - Conductor

Inese Klotina - Piano

Carmine Lauri - Guest Leader

Guest musicians from the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia

 

Programme:

Sergei Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 1

Richard Strauss - Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40

 

 

Richard Strauss is particularly renowned for his epic tone poems, and none are more epic than his Ein Heldenleben, a musical depiction of the life and works of a hero which is typically interpreted as being autobiographical in nature. The work is written for a huge orchestra - on this occasion, the MPO will be joined by musicians from the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia - and is arguably Strauss' most technically demanding orchestral work.

 

Under the direction of Dutch-Maltese conductor Lawrence Renes, the orchestra will also be joined by Latvian pianist Inese Klotina for a performance of Rachmaninoff’s First Piano Concerto. Written when Rachmaninoff was just eighteen but later extensively revised, it showcases both his youthful freshness as well as his subsequent development into a mature and brilliant composer.
