Philharmonia in Mauritius

"In 2024, the Philharmonia will become the first major international symphony orchestra to tour to Mauritius, developing a new multi-year residency project – Philharmonia Festival: Mauritius. "
Classical Music – Philharmonic Ensemble
19,20 January
Event language: English
Length of event: 2h
Price range: Rs600 - Rs4000

The Festival will enable the discovery of new sounds and new music, tearing down the barriers to accessing live symphonic music, where previously there has been little access available in Mauritius. The Philharmonia Orchestra combines excellence and innovation to achieve its mission to create the orchestral experience of the future. For our January 2024 concerts,  a 20-player chamber orchestra will perform the following program:

 

Vivaldi: “Spring” from the 4 Seasons  with Zsolt-Tihamer Visontay, Violin

Haydn: Cello Concerto in D major,  with Steven Isserlis, Cello

Mozart: Four 4 Contredanses K.267

Massenet: Thais: Meditation, with Irene Duval, Violin

Tchaikovsky: Serenade

 

The project aims to build a new audience for classical music in a country with a vibrant multinational and multiethnic culture. The orchestra will undertake education projects with young Mauritian musicians, will create partnerships with local television stations and news media, and will bring together a network of local support in support of the project’s ambition. In 2025 the Orchestral will aim to visit with a 40-member group, building to its full 80-member capacity thereafter . Please stay tuned for more detailed information.
