Beethoven 4 Brahms

DATE: 25/02/2023
TIME: 7:30 PM till 9:30 PM

Malta Philharmonic Orchestra
Ilyich Rivas Conductor 



Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 4, Op. 60 
Johannes Brahms Symphony No. 4, Op. 98 


The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra returns to Gozo for an evening of symphonic music by Beethoven and Brahms. 

The MPO directed by famed Venezuelan-born American conductor Ilyich Rivas presents a sublime symphonic programme featuring two German musical giants, Beethoven and Brahms.  

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4 is a cheerful and light-hearted work, with brilliantly developed musical fragments intertwined with subtle revolutionary elements culminating in a dazzling, joyous finale. The Fourth and last symphony of Brahms is more sombre in character, with haunting melodies, rich orchestration and lyrical beauty throughout, from its graceful opening two notes to its powerful ending. 

This concert is presented with the support of MeDirect.

This concert is eligible for the MPO Membership Scheme discounts.
