philharmonicThe Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra closes its season with an interesting program at the movies on April 11, 8pm at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (Main Theater) under the baton of Maestro Olivier Ochanine.

Music includes ‘Morning’ from Grieg’s Peer Gynt, selections from “E.T.” and “The Good, the Bad & The Ugly”, as well as the stunning “Also Sprach Zarathustra” of Richard Strauss, whose 150th birth anniversary will be commemorated in 2014, and whose prelude is known by all for its inclusion in the film “2001: A Space Odyssey”. The audience has the golden opportunity to hear the wonderful piece in its entirety.
