Step into a realm where dreams and music intertwine as the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) presents an enchanting evening of classical masterpieces with ‘Fantasia Across Dreams’.

Set against the majestic Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP) backdrop on 24 February 2024, this concert is poised to be a soul-stirring journey through the soundscapes of some of history’s most revered composers.

The night will unfurl with the hauntingly beautiful ‘Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis‘ by Vaughan Williams.

This piece evokes a tapestry of mystical and elegiac emotions, conducted by none other than the composer himself at its 1910 premiere.

Thrill of the Hunt – Rondo Finale

Flowing seamlessly into the sweet melodies of Mozart, the MPO will present his Horn Concerto No.3, featuring the prodigious Grzegorz Curyła.

His horn will sing with a sonority that promises to captivate, requiring breath control that only a maestro of his calibre can muster.

The concerto’s finale, a rondo with a hunt-themed tune, will surely enthral the audience.

After a brief interlude, Tchaikovsky’s ‘Winter Dreams’ will transport listeners to the snowy expanses of Russia.

This Symphony No.1 in G minor is a masterpiece that combines catchy melodies with the brilliance of Tchaikovsky’s orchestral colour.

The baton will be wielded by Russian maestro Stanislav Kochanovsky, known for his electrifying presence and profound interpretations.
