HARISH SHANKAR
NAOHISA FURUSAWA
Hailing from Malaysia, Harish Shankar enjoys
a growing presence on the international stage.
Prize winner at the 6th International Jorma Panula
Conducting Competition, Shankar has conducted the
Jena Philharmonics, the Leipzig Symphony Orchestra,
Staatsphilharmonie Braunschweig, Orquesta Sinfónica
de Trujillo, the North Czech Philharmonic, Karlovy
Vary Symphony Orchestra, Vaasa City Orchestra,
Jyväskylä Symphony Orchestra and Manchester
Camerata. His debut with the Hallé Orchestra received
high critical acclaim. With an active voice in the
media, Shankar has been featured in ‘Classical Music
Magazine’ and interviewed on BBC Radio 3.
Naohisa Furusawa has been a member of the
Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) double
bass section since January 2003. Born in Tokyo
in 1973, he started to play the violin when he
was four years old and later joined his junior high
school orchestra as a double bass player at age
12. His first conducting experiences were with this
school orchestra. Later, he studied double bass
with Prof. Nobuo Shiga, piano and conducting
with Prof. Kazue Kamiya at Tokyo’s Toho Gakuen
School of Music.
A pianist by training, Shankar received initial piano
lessons at the age of six with Penny Kam. He
continued his studies with Loo Bang Hean before
being accepted into the class of Konstanze Eickhorst
at the Conservatoire of Lübeck. He went on to study
conducting with Eiji Oue and was subsequently invited
to Peru where he lead projects for El Sistema, an
award-winning social programme that aims to bring
children from all walks of life together with music.

several other orchestras, under the director
of many conductors, including Seiji Ozawa,
Kazuyoshi Akiyama, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Holst
Stein, Lorin Maazel, Herbert Blomstedt, Pierre
Boulez and Valery Gergiev. In 1998, Furusawa
was awarded a scholarship from the Cultural
Affairs Agency of Japan to study double bass at
the Mozarteum University in Salzburg. He has

William Walton wrote a memorable
film score; The Merry Wives of
Windsor, which brought forth a

and Romeo and Juliet, which has
inspired more music than any

2013 Van Cliburn International
Piano Competition. Melodic
inspiration, wonderful freshness
and harmonic piquancy all
contribute to making this concerto
a true audience favourite. In
Arnold Schoenberg’s orchestration
of Brahms’ Piano Quartet we find
orchestral virtuosity that dazzles
and amazes at every turn.
BEETHOVEN
Symphony No. 6 “Pastoral”
Masterpieces by two towering
figures of the mid 19th century
adorn this programme. Making his
MPO debut in Schumann’s Piano
Concerto is French pianist David
Fray whose playing has been
described by critics as “exquisite,
imaginative, and virtuosic”.
Bruckner’s best-known symphony,
the Fourth, inhabits a sound world
of celestial majesty, vast time
scale, far-flung sonic splendour, a
leisurely pace, awesome silences
and engaging themes of great
breadth.
Internationally acclaimed
baritone Matthias Goerne sings
Gustav Mahler’s intimate, deeply
personal songs from Des Knaben
Wunderhorn (The Youth’s Magic
Horn). Mahler’s Symphony No. 1
“Titan” – at once mystical, playful,
earthy and transcendent – offers
an exhilarating journey into the
human experience and a heroic
conclusion to the concert.

Winner of the Queen Elisabeth
(2009) and Yehudi Menuhin
Competitions (2008), Ray Chen
is among the most compelling
young violinists on the world stage
today. Chen plays Beethoven’s
Violin Concerto, music of sublime
beauty and regarded as one
of the greatest in the repertory.
To open the programme we
hear Beethoven’s King Stephen
Overture and to close, one of his
best-known symphonies, the idyllic
Pastoral (No. 6).

Eugene Onegin. Music from Dukas’
La Péri, a sumptuous French ballet
score about a fairytale creature,

Symphonie fantastique
For grandeur, majesty and sheer
tonal opulence, few symphonies can
stand beside Saint-Saëns’ Third.
The prominent role provided by the
organ, the ‘King of Instruments’,
provides an additional measure
of imposing sonority. Regarded
as one of the great French
symphonies, it also boasts a good
measure of charm, elegance
and consummate craftsmanship.
Debussy’s sensuous tone poem
about the amorous musing of
a woodland creature (a faun)
and Poulenc’s witty Sinfonietta
complete the programme.
MENDELSSOHN
Symphony No. 4
Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique
is truly fantastic, not only for the
fantasy world it depicts but for the
composer’s use of the orchestra
as a giant virtuoso instrument for
the conductor to play upon. This
endlessly fascinating symphony
is filled to the brim with myriad
orchestral effects and tonal
colours, making it one of the most
popular works in the repertory.
Orchestral mastery is evident also
in excerpts from Wagner’s final
opera, Parsifal, music of mystery
and magic that transports the
listener to another dimension.
RM150 RM120 RM90 RM60
Roberto Abbado’s programme
opens with Berlioz’s dazzling
portrayal of Roman festivities
and closes with Mendelssohn’s
beloved Italian Symphony.
In between, we hear a violin
concerto by one of Italy’s bestknown composers, Nicolò Paganini,
whose music for violin is known
for its technical wizardry and
virtuosic flair. Luigi Boccherini too
was Italian but spent much of his
career in Spain, where he received
inspiration for his Night Music of
the Streets of Madrid.

many believe that this “hero” was
actually Strauss himself! In any
case, Ein Heldenleben is replete
with opulent sounds, glowing
orchestration, huge climaxes,
enormous energy and a veritable
kaleidoscope of tonal colours –
music orchestras love to play,
conductors love to conduct, and
audiences love to hear. One of
Haydn’s most beloved symphonies
opens the programme.

Concerto, music that is by turns
hyperemotional and passionate,
reflective and introspective, hence
in many ways reflecting the life of
the man who wrote it. Stravinsky’s
Petrushka, another audience
favourite, is a wildly colourful ballet
score filled with picturesque details
– some riotously flamboyant, some
exquisitely beautiful – depicting a
puppet show at a carnival scene
in a 19th century Russian village.
Fairytale music by Ravel opens the
programme.
RM200 RM160 RM130 RM100
The featured work on this concert
is a symphonic synthesis of
Wagner’s monumental Tristan and

set in legendary time. Soprano
Tamara Wilson stars in the

and the programme opens with a

her best-loved toy into the bear’s pit. That night,
she cries herself to sleep, only to wake up and
find in her room a huge bear, who has come to
return her precious teddy. So begins a bear-size
friendship! Join the MPO for this perfect family
treat.

Swan Lake: Waltz
Everyone loves magic! And the MPO has a truly
magical programme of music for you. Every piece
on this programme has something to do with
magic, including several excerpts from Mozart’s
delightful opera The Magic Flute. Then there’s
Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice, made famous
through an animated film starring Mickey Mouse
as the apprentice trying to learn magic from a
terrifying sorcerer. And don’t forget the witch in
Hansel and Gretel, another opera filled with magic.
Let the music cast its spell on you!
SAINT-SAËNS
Carnival of the Animals
This programme is devoted to the animal kingdom
– creatures that walk, run, crawl, swim, fly and even
one that would like to eat you! The featured work
is Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals in which he
depicts the mighty roars of the lion (a little scary!),
lumbering elephants, onagers (fastest horses in the
world), a graceful swan and much more. Beyond
Saint-Saëns’ Carnival, we also encounter a bumble
bee, a funny dog, a magical firebird, and other
fascinating creatures of the animal world. Great fun
for the entire family!

The MPYO presents two of the
world’s most beloved serenades;
one for winds and one for strings.
Dvořák’s Serenade is one of his
sunniest, most enjoyable compositions.
Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings
is his tribute to Mozart, a thoroughly
delightful work in which Tchaikovsky
at times imitates the style of his
favourite composer. A bold and
brassy fanfare by Dukas opens
the programme.
Music by Dmitri Shostakovich
opens and closes this concert by
the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth
Orchestra. The composer’s Fifth
Symphony is the featured work.
It is not only the most popular of
Shostakovich’s fifteen symphonies
but one of the most popular
symphonies of the entire twentieth
century. The same composer’s
impressive Festive Overture opens
the concert, followed by a lovely
musical landscape of the Bohemian
countryside, Smetana’s Moldau.
Resident conductor, Harish Shankar
leads the Malaysian Philharmonic
Youth Orchestra in Sibelius’ grandest
and most popular symphony, the
Second, which takes the listener
from a gentle beginning to towering
symphonic strength.

DEWAN FILHARMONIK PETRONAS
Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP) is home to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) and
is Malaysia’s first concert hall dedicated to classical music. Located at the PETRONAS Twin Towers, it
was officially opened on 17 August 1998 by the patron of the MPO, Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Haji Mohd Ali
and former Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
Designed by Cesar Pelli, the hall takes its inspiration from the traditional shoe-box shape of the great
19th century European concert halls with the magnificent Klais Pipe Organ providing a spectacular
backdrop to the hall’s stage.
The hall contains 920 seats, including box seats, corporate suites and a royal suite. Acoustics
experts Kirkegaard and Associates have incorporated unique acoustical devices into its design to
maximize the hall’s natural qualities.
Celebrating its 18th anniversary in 2016, DFP plays an integral part in the music and cultural
landscape of Malaysia and the city of Kuala Lumpur. It continues to enthrall listeners as it has done
since the day it first opened its doors. In addition to stimulating and enriching concerts by the MPO,
world renowned orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, BBC
Symphony and Vienna Symphony have performed in this hall.
Beyond classical music, DFP has hosted prominent ensembles of other music genres such as the
Count Basie Orchestra, Yellowjackets, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Mezzoforte, Pink Martini and
Gotan Project. International stars that have graced the stage include Harry Connick Jr., Anoushka
Shankar, Laura Fygi, Zakir Hussain, Larry Carlton and Diana Krall.
Renowned Malaysian artists including SM Salim, Sheila Majid, M Nasir, Siti Nurhaliza, Jamal
Abdillah, Ramli Ibrahim, Khadijah Ibrahim, Ella, Yuna, Aizat, Hafiz, Najwa and Dayang Nurfaizah
have mesmerised audiences at DFP.
Concerts by talented young Malaysians from the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (MPYO)
continue to be hosted at this venue.
DFP’s success is also attributed to its exceptional architectural design, superior acoustics and
recording studio modelled after the legendary Abbey Road Studios.

MALAYSIAN
PHILHARMONIC
ORCHESTRA
The Malaysian Philharmonic
Orchestra (MPO) gave its inaugural
performance at Dewan Filharmonik
PETRONAS (DFP) on 17 August
1998. The MPO today comprises
musicians from 24 countries, including
7 from Malaysia, a remarkable
example of harmony among different
cultures and nationalities.
A host of internationally-acclaimed
musicians has worked with the MPO,
including Lorin Maazel, Sir Neville
Marriner, Yehudi Menuhin, Joshua
Bell, Harry Connick Jr., José Carreras,
Andrea Bocelli and Branford Marsalis,
many of whom have praised the MPO
for its fine musical qualities and vitality.
With each new season, the MPO
continues to present a varied
programme of orchestral music drawn
from over three centuries, as well as
the crowd-pleasing concert series.
Its versatility transcends genres,
from classical masterpieces to film
music, pop, jazz, contemporary and
commissioned works.
The MPO regularly performs at major
cities of Malaysia. Internationally,
it has showcased its virtuosity to
audiences in Singapore (1999, 2001
and 2005), Korea (2001), Australia
(2004), China (2006), Taiwan
(2007), Japan (2001 and 2009) and
Vietnam (2013). Its Education and
Outreach Programme, ENCOUNTER,
reaches beyond the concert platform
to develop musical awareness,
appreciation and skills through
dedicated activities that include
instrumental lessons, workshops
and school concerts. ENCOUNTER
also presents memorable events in
such diverse venues as orphanages,
hospitals, rehabilitation centres and
community centres.
The MPO’s commitment to furthering
musical interest in the nation has
been the creation of the Malaysian
Philharmonic Youth Orchestra
(MPYO). It gave its inaugural concert
at DFP on 25 August 2007, followed
by a tour in Peninsular Malaysia.
It has performed in Sabah and
Sarawak (2008), Singapore (2009)
and Brisbane, Australia (2012).
As it celebrates its 18th anniversary in
2016, the MPO remains steadfast in
its mission to share the depth, power
and beauty of great music.
The MPO’s main benefactor is
PETRONAS and its patron is Tun Dr.
Siti Hasmah Haji Mohd Ali.
