About The Event

SOI Concert Season: September 2013


The National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) will present the Symphony Orchestra of India’s September 2013 Concert Season, at the Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, NCPA from September 20th to 30th 2013. We are delighted to announce that this season will feature a special guest appearance from Maestro Charles Dutoit, one of the most celebrated conductors of his generation. Maestro Dutoit will conduct two performances of Beethoven’s First Symphony and Mussorgsky’s much-loved Pictures At An Exhibition, as orchestrated by Maurice Ravel. Between these two orchestral masterpieces, Canadian violinist Chantal Juillet will perform Korngold’s wonderful Violin Concerto. 

The final two concerts of the season will be given by Maestro Lior Shambadal, the principal conductor of the Berliner Symphoniker. The first of these will feature French and Russian repertoire by Debussy, Dukas and Mussorgsky, culminating in Shostakovich’s powerful Fifth Symphony. The Russian theme continues into the final concert with works by Prokofiev and Khachaturian, followed by a rousing finale of Dances and Waltzes by DvoÅ™ák, Brahms and Johann Strauss II.
