Welcome to MSO’s 2018/19 concert season which commences with a wonderful programme of Rossini, Mendelssohn and Beethoven.
The MSO is delighted to present Hitoshi Suzuki’s inaugural concert with the orchestra as their new Principal Conductor! Congratulations to Hitoshi who has freshly graduated from Brussels Conservatoire with a Master’s Degree in Orchestra Conducting and what better place to start a long and successful relationship than with the headlong irrepressible rhythmic energy of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony! Premiered in 1813, the “Seventh” has always earned its permanent place in the repertory, with its 2nd movement particularly enjoying popular status, most recently as the soundtrack to the film .
