According to The Iran Project,The TSO will perform a repertoire of pieces by Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky in its upcoming concert, IRNA reported.

Mozart’s pieces selected for the performance include “Magic Flute Overture” and “Concerto for Flute and Harp in C Major”. Junior soloists Farzaneh Assadi and Diba Vali will accompany the orchestra with flute and harp respectively, in the latter. The TSO will also perform “Symphony No. 5” by Tchaikovsky.

Mozart (1756-1791) was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical period. Despite his short life, his rapid pace of composition resulted in more than 800 works of virtually every Western classical genre of his time. Many of these compositions are acknowledged as pinnacles of the symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral repertoire. He is widely regarded as among the greatest composers in the history of Western music, with his music admired for its “melodic beauty, its formal elegance and its richness of harmony and texture”.

Tchaikovsky (1840–1893) was the first Russian composer whose music would make a lasting impression internationally. He wrote some of the most popular concert and theatrical music in the current classical repertoire.

The Tehran Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1933, is Iran's oldest and largest symphony orchestra. During the years, celebrated musicians including Rubik Gregorian, Morteza Hannaneh, Haymo Taeuber, Heshmat Sanjari, and Farhad Meshkat took over as the conductor of the orchestra.
