Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra
Roberto Abbado, conductor
BEETHOVEN Coriolan Overture
HINDEMITH Mathis der Maler
BRAHMS Symphony No. 1
The “hero” in music appears here in many layers: Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture depicts the Roman leader’s resolve and humanity, while Hindemith’s Mathis de Maler was banned for exploring the artist’s role in the face of political injustice. Roberto Abbado conducts the glorious Brahms 1st Symphony… a triumph of the composer’s own distinctive symphonic language.
