Six works by five composers from four countries will be providing the musical riches for this extravagant programme. The MPO’s Principal Conductor Fabio Mechetti will showcase his brilliant virtuosity and weave magic leading the MPO in this set of concerts.

Audience can expect to be bowled over with Johann Strauss’ wonderful tune that makes up the overture to the world’s favourite operetta, Die Fledermaus. Also included in the repertoire list is Richard Strauss’ popular Der Rosenkavalier Suite, and other dance-inspired music such as Weber’s brilliant Invitation to the Dance, Ravel’s homage to the waltz La valse, Sibelius’ Finland-inspired Valse Triste and Tchaikovsky’s poetic Eugene Onegin Waltz.


Brazil-born Mechetti garners consistent praise from critics and colleagues for his artistry and knowledge of the symphonic repertoire. He has collaborated with the Danish Radio Orchestra, New Jersey, Seattle, Jacksonville and Utah symphonies, Rochester and Buffalo Philharmonics, orchestras in Mexico, Spain, Brazil and Venezuela, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo and Sapporo symphonies, and the Chautauqua Festival Symphony Orchestra

He has also worked with some of the greatest artists of our generation including Mstislav Rostropovich, Alicia de Larrocha, Magda Tagliaferro, Nicanor Zabaleta, Frederica von Stade, Thomas Hampson, Kathleen Battle, Gil Shaham, Sarah Chang, Hilary Hahn, Arnaldo Cohen, Nelson Freire and Andre Watts, among others.


Remember to join the MPO in an unforgettable musical fanfare this new year, only at DFP.
