THANK YOU!

 

  

Many thanks to all 22 members and guests who joined us yesterday for Fiesta Mexicana - Great Violin Concertos at the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas.  

The evening started with cocktails and delicious fingerfood at KL's hotspot Marini's on 57th. This put us all in the right mode to afterwards experience the Mexican Alondra de la Parra make her Malaysia debut, conducting the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in folk-and-dance-inspired Latin music as well as classical masterpieces by Beethoven and Mendelssohn.

 
It is not every day that a young woman conductor, who is also celebrated as one of the most compelling conductors of her generation, leads this orchestra.

In addition, we were also given a special treat by Josef Spacek, the young world renown Czech musician who is fast emerging as one of the most accomplished violinists of our time. His solo performance was greatly appreciated by the audience, who did not want him to leave the stage.

This was truly a magnificient concert experience! We are looking forward to doing it again.
