Wednesday, February 17, brings to the stage of the Radio Hall an evening dedicated to Mozart and Beethoven under the baton of Lubnan Baalbaki, permanent conductor with the Lebanon Philharmonic Orchestra.
The evening will open with the overture of the opera Don Giovanni by Mozart, an opera based on the legend of the seducer Don Juan, and will end with the First Symphony by Beethoven, a work which is said to have been created under the influence of his predecessors whom he admired, Haydn and Mozart.
