Portuguese Premiere of Alexi Matchavariani’s Symphonic Suite “Hamlet”

At a concert entitled “East of Shakespeare” with works of Sibelius, Shostakovich and Matchavariani, the Porto Symphony Orchestra directed by the Finnish conductor John Storgårds will perform the Portuguese premiere of Alexi Matchavariani's Symphonic Suite from the opera "Hamlet" on 15 November 2013.

At the ‘Casa da Música’ (House of Music) in Porto, Dmitri Shostakovich's "Hamlet Suite" for orchestra will also be performed.

In the part of the concert concerned with the subject of "Hamlet", in which feelings of betrayal and revenge dominate, the works by the two East European composers attain the dimensions of epic dramas, allowing extraordinary emotions to be generated in concert.
