The SOSL returns to a program of classical masterpieces after its (hugely successful) annual foray into the world of pops. 

November 3rd, 2018 will see Beethoven’s symphony no 3, the massive and revolutionary Eroica, performed at Ladies’ College for the first time in over two decades.

This work embodies heroism and victory not just for Napoleon (to whom it was first dedicated) or for Beethoven, but for music itself in symphonic form. The Eroica represents the struggle, grief, death, freedom, joy and victory of the human state all in one monumental work that is one of Beethoven’s greatest achievements. Under the guidance of Dushyanthi Perera, the SOSL will take up the challenge of bringing you this seminal and groundbreaking work in the symphonic genre.

The SOSL Masterworks concert also features Julian Clef, an award-winning young pianist who will perform Chopin’s piano concerto no. 2 in F minor—a piece designed by the composer to showcase his own virtuosic brilliance and mastery of the instrument, as was the norm in the early 19th century.  

Indian-born Julian Clef graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with a master’s degree in 2014. After studying with eminent pianists Martin Roscoe and Ronan O’Hora at the Guildhall School of music, he graduated with an Artistic Diploma in July 2016.An active recitalist, Julian has performed in many venues in the UK and abroad, including Buckingham Palace in London, Leeds College of Music, St David’s Hall in Cardiff, NCPA in Mumbai and Dvorak Prague International Music Festival.
