Ludwig van Beethoven
Coriolan Overture Op. 62.
Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61
Egmont Overture Op. 84
The Ruins of Athens Incidental Music Op. 113

The MPO joins the international celebrations marking Beethoven’s 250th birthday anniversary with a concert at Malta’s national theatre. Imbued with patriotic flair, The Ruins of Athens, are a set of incidental music pieces composed to accompany Kotzebue’s play which commemorated a new imperial theatre built in Pest.

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, although written over a short period of time, eventually established itself in the core solo repertoire. Its renowned spirited finale exploits the melodic traits of the instrument in a virtuosic fashion.

LOCATION: Teatru Manoel, Valletta
