This announcement was put up in Tengku Ahmad Irfan's blog but I don't think classical music lovers here is aware yet of his upcoming performance with the Malaysia Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) for the opening Gala Concert since it was not put up as a new post in his blog. He will be back from New York for a while, besides it is the summer holidays there and with Raya Aidil Fitri also celebrated earlier in August, this concert coincides nicely.
Irfan will be performing Prokofiev Concerto No.2 & world premiere of Sahibul Hikayat Fantasy Overture
Irfan's orchestral piece, Keraian (Celebration), premiered by the New York Philharmonic last May 23rd 2013 at a High School Day concert. It was such a great honor and experience as it is the best orchestra in the US. They played Irfan and two of his colleagues pieces.
Truth be told I do not understand classical music but only a tiny bit and as it is my grandnephew who is performing it's a date for the grandaunts with Irfan...
