If the concert of the first half demonstrated the orchestra’s cultural heritage, then Richard Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben on the second half revealed the orchestra’s superb skills under the baton of Franz Welser-Möst. Through this challenging piece, the orchestra impressed the audience with their charming and elegant sounds.

On April 13th, Franz Welser-Möst will bring another music feast with the orchestra, which features Sergei Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 3 in C Minor and Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 in E Minor.
