Bruch Violin Concerto No.1 in G minor, Op.26
Beethoven Symphony No.6 Pastoral
Rafael Payare Conductor
Tamás Kocsis Violin
Part of the Ulster Orchestra’s On Your Doorstep series, we are delighted to appear at the Ardhowen Theatre as part of our Regional Touring programme, supported by JTI.
In his uplifting Pastoral Symphony (the best, according to many), Beethoven’s relentless struggles with fate are temporarily set aside as he takes delight in rustic rural life and the fresh air of nature. But this is a countryside not unlike our own, coming complete with a massive rainstorm and collection of merry peasants…
This is partnered with Bruch’s Violin Concerto, the work for which the composer is chiefly remembered. Ulster Orchestra Leader Tamás Kocsis turns soloist for tonight’s performance, which will see Bruch’s memorable melodies sparkle on the Ardhowen stage.
