If you were to ask any individual on the street to name an opera, they’ll likely say Carmen or Don Giovanni. This is for sure the mark of a work that cannot be understated or undersold. 

On this night, the opening of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's work sets the mood in a tense yet exciting atmosphere. The Ensemble Sinfonia Varsovia next play Frederic Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor opus 21. This is an equally stunning work which balances the orchestra and piano perfectly. Created in 1984 by Sir Yehudi Menuhin, the Ensemble Sinfonia Varsovia has played in some of the foremost venues around the world, and specialises in accompanied operatic features. The soloist Nelson Goerner adds his perfectionist streak to the works on this magistral concert and conductor Lio Kuokman brings out the very best from his orchestra, transporting the audience to Warsaw in the mid-19th century.
