34th PPO CONCERT SEASON Timeless Classics, New Beginnings CONCERT II Maestro Yoshikazu Fukumura Music Director and Principal Conductor
Cultural Center of the Philippines
October 14, 2016| 8:00 PM
Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater)
In this second season concert, Maestro Yoshikazu Fukumura leads the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra in the performance of two symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No.1 in C, Op.21 and Symphony No.9 in D minor, Op. 125. It is with Symphony No. 1 that Beethoven introduced his unique and bold experimentation in symphonic music. His final complete symphony, the Symphony No. 9 (also known as "the Choral") is one of the best-known works in classical music and one of Beethoven’s greatest works.
The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra performs Symphony No. 9 with Japanese soprano Shoko Fukuda, Filipino alto Camille Lopez-Molina, Japanese tenor Hiroshi Watanabe, Filipino bass Noel Azcona, and a 100-voice choir.
