In his second appearance as Music Director of the Gulbenkian Orchestra, Hannu Lintu conducts one of the most ambitious creations of the composer Adam Maor, whose work often reflects on the geopolitical situation in the Middle East and incorporates elements of Arab classical music. The work Halim, concerto for two pianos and orchestra, will be performed by pianists Antoine Françoise and Gilles Grimaître, specialists in contemporary repertoire. In the second part, Lintu will conduct Chostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, premiered in 1937 and triumphantly received at a time when the composer feared for his artistic future.
