Join Daniele Rustioni for an exploration of two works written in exile in the USA (and one written just before its composer fled to exile) that create very different sound worlds.
A rumble from the timpani introduces Grazyna Bacewicz’s blazingly dynamic Overture for Orchestra; a dramatic and powerful opening to this concert.
Bartók’s effervescent Concerto for Orchestra explores different musical textures by using single instruments or instrument groups in a soloistic way, celebrating the wonderful musicians of the Ulster Orchestra in fizzing, celebratory style.
Those of a certain vintage will be familiar with Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony, for a TV advert featuring cobbled streets and a small boy with a bicycle basket full of bread, an advert that highlighted the rich melodies of the entire work, which are drawn both from European and US folk music. Explore the varied sound world of the orchestra or, through folk music, feel the tug to the heartstrings of a yearning love-song to ‘home’..
Ulster Orchestra are grateful to The Priests’ Charitable Trust, which supports this concert.
