The Hangzhou Philharmonic Orchestra boasts 80 official members and is considered one of the top five symphony orchestras in China.
The concert, titled ‘Majestic, the Sound,’ is dedicated to the works of the great German composer Ludwig van Beethoven.
In this concert, Rahbari will be accompanied by renowned German performer Gerhard Oppitz.
Oppitz, who has collaborated with Rahbari in various countries, garnered special acclaim for his renditions of Beethoven’s compositions. The performance will feature the ‘Overture to Egmont,’ the music for Goethe’s play, the famous Piano Concerto No. 5, also known as the Emperor Concerto, and Symphony No. 3, renowned as the Eroica Symphony, which Beethoven had initially dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte.
Rahbari, currently holding the position of permanent conductor at the Mariinsky Theatre, in St. Petersburg, Russia, has conducted and often recorded all of the symphonic works of this German composer.
