Darrell Ang, conductor
Tengku Irfan, piano

Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37
Elgar - Symphony No. 2 in E-Flat major, Op. 63

This concert spotlights Elgar's Second Symphony, a deeply personal work described by the composer as "the passionate pilgrimage of the soul". Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto took over three years to compose, and finally premiered in 1803 with the composer himself at the piano: not having had time to write out the solo part completely, he played almost all of it from memory. Performing this groundbreaking concerto at this SSO concert is the prodigiously talented 15-year-old Malaysian pianist and composer Tengku Ahmad Irfan.
