In the 50th year of the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA), the Symphony Orchestra of India (SOI) will feature renowned conductors and soloists, who have made their mark in Mumbai, in masterworks of the 17th and 18th Centuries.

The season opens on September 11, with the richness and expressiveness of Chausson along with the absolute romanticism of Felix Mendelssohn, in two concerti for violin, piano, and strings. These works will be performed by SOI’s Music Director Marat Bisengaliev and Italian pianist Roberto Prosseda.

On September 17, Simon O’Neill hailed as "THE Wagnerian tenor of his generation" returns to the SOI for the third time, accompanied by fellow New Zealander, soprano Amanda Atlas, in an all-Wagner gala, featuring music from Parsifal, Lohengrin, and Die Walküre. Associate Music Director Zane Dalal will conduct this special programme.

After his extremely successful concerts with the SOI last year, Russian conductor Alexander Lazarev returns to conduct two concerts this season. On September 22, Irish pianist Barry Douglas, a favourite of Mumbai audiences, will perform Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2. The programme also features Stravinsky’s brash, bold, and the exciting suite from the ballet Petrushka.

The Season concludes with the SOI welcoming to the stage the young Indian pianist Lydian Nadhaswaram from Chennai, who went viral this year as the winner of the television competition The World’s Best on CBS. He will perform Haydn’s Piano concert to No. 11. The concert, led by Lazarev will open with excerpts from the Khachaturian’s ballet Spartacus and feature Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, one of the Russian composer’s most popular works.


The season also features recitals by Barry Douglas, Simon O’Neill, Amanda Atlas, Terence Dennis, Roberto Prosseda and Alessandra Ammara.
