Event Details

Due to circumstances beyond his control, Associate Music Director Zane Dalal is regretfully forced to withdraw from the concert on September 10, 2023, with the Symphony Orchestra of India and Marat Bisengaliev.

We are grateful to Richard Farnes for agreeing to take over as conductor for this concert at short notice. The programme remains unchanged.


Richard Farnes, conductor
Marat Bisengaliev, violin

Rossini: Semiramide Overture
Khachaturian: Violin Concerto in D minor
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74 “Pathétique”

SOI Associate Music Director Zane Dalal returns to Mumbai to conduct a concert featuring Tchaikovsky’s final composition, popularly known as the “Pathétique” Symphony, from the French meaning ‘evoking emotion’, recognized for its profound emotional depth and dramatic narrative. Referred to by the composer as the “Passionate Symphony”, Tchaikovsky commented: “Without exaggeration, I have put my whole soul into this work.”

Music Director Marat Bisengaliev performs Aram Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto, an incredibly attractive work showcasing Armenian folk melodies and enthralling rhythms.

The concert opens with Rossini’s Overture to Semiramide. Based on the legend of Semiramis of Assyria, Semiramide was the last opera the composer wrote in Italy. The overture’s grandeur matched that of the opera making it one of Rossini’s finest contributions to the genre.

This event runs approximately 130 minutes including one intermission.

Pre-concert talk at 4:15 pm in the JBT Museum.


Box Office now Open.
