Sibelius, Elgar & Saint-Saëns

Sibelius Symphony No.5

Saint-Saëns Overture: Phaeton
Elgar Cello Concerto
Sibelius Symphony No.5


One of the great masterworks, Elgar’s Cello Concerto is a wistful, beautiful piece that falls towards the end of his composing career, when he wondered if he had any musical relevance, and there’s a sense of solitude – even loneliness – that haunts this work. Elsewhere, the Ulster Orchestra brass take to the skies, first in the sun chariot of the Greek God Helios in Saint-Saëns’s Phaeton Overture and then as a flock of whooper swans in that famous finale of Sibelius’s triumphant Fifth Symphony.  
This concert takes place in partnership with Belfast International Arts Festival.
