Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra Jun Märkl, conductor Tengku Irfan, piano
SCHUMANN (orch. RAVEL) Carnaval RAVEL Piano Concerto in G major SCHUMANN Symphony No. 2
Malaysia’s own rising star Tengku Irfan returns home with the fanciful, jazz-infused Ravel piano concerto. Ravel’s deft transcription of Schumann’s Carnaval opens the concert with a kaleidoscope of colours. Maestro Jun Märkl conducts Schumann’s compelling 2nd Symphony - artfully composed to pay homage to Bach and Beethoven while creating new symphonic traditions.
