Why Dewan Filharmonik (Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra) is special ?

The Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) gave its inaugural performance at DEWAN FILHARMONIK PETRONAS (DFP), Kuala Lumpur, on 17 August 1998. The initial search for outstanding musicians involved a worldwide audition tour. The result was a symphony orchestra made up of musicians from 25 nations – a remarkable example of harmony among different cultures and nationalities.

A host of internationally-acclaimed musicians has worked with the MPO, including the late Lorin Maazel, Sir Neville Marriner, Yehudi Menuhin, Joshua Bell, Harry Connick Jr and Andrea Bocelli, many of whom have praised the MPO for its fine musical qualities and vitality.

The concert hall is the first and only purpose-built hall of its kind in Malaysia and acknowledged for its unparalleled acoustic environment and quality of the orchestra.

What to explore at Dewan Filharmonik (Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra)?

Home to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO), DFP’s magnificent architectural design and superior acoustics combined with its location within the business and leisure hub of Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) make the hall a “must-visit” destination for travelers and Malaysians alike.

As the MPO, you can enjoy performing with the widest possible audience. They offers various concessions and discounts.

I love classical music and I'm so glad that there's a philharmonic orchestra in KL. I like their performance. The place and the acoustic is great, too. At least, take the middle seat to see the whole personnel. Mostly, they perform on Friday til Sunday. You can get their monthly schedule in the MPO shop downstairs. For the rare performances, you must book in advance or you don't get the ticket.

Tey jave a nice series where once a month they will change their young viewers programme. When we went it was rertedly not as good as some other times, but the programme that we misssed was Harry Potter's music. Sounds wonderful!It is not a huge music hall, which is good in it's own way. There are large cushions available to help children and other small people sit higher and see better (very customer friendly!). The accoustics were good enough for the performance I witnessed but I honestly cannot say much about the quality of the orchestra itself.
