TIME: 8:00 PM till 8:00 PM



Piano Concerto No. 4


 Symphony No. 3


Although they never met in person, Beethoven and Brahms have always been closely associated through their musical styles. Under the baton of Brian Schembri, the orchestra will be joined by highly acclaimed Maltese pianist Charlene Farrugia to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4.

Brahms’ Third Symphony was well received at its premiere and a leading music critic at the time, Eduard Hanslick, commented that “Many music lovers will prefer the titanic force of the First Symphony; others, the untroubled charm of the Second, but the Third strikes me as being artistically the most nearly perfect”.
