Michael Francis conducts Brahms, Shor, and Beethoven — With Stella Chen InClassica International Music Festival 2021

About

Join the renowned Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz at the InClassica Festival in Dubai for a splendidly unique program dedicated to Germanic musical genius under the baton of British Maestro Michael Francis, kicking off with Brahms's Variations on a Theme by Haydn. The bright mind that taught the likes of Mozart is also the inspiration behind Alexey Shor’s Violin Concerto Phantasms, our second work of the night, performed impeccably by virtuoso Stella Chen. One masterpiece follows another and the concert ends with Beethoven’s immortal Fifth Symphony, in a version edited by Gustav Mahler!
