Britain and Brahms

Cellist Gabriel Schwabe joins the Ulster Orchestra to perform Frank Bridge's Oration (Concerto elegiaco).

Event Details


12 January 2024 19:45


Ulster Hall - Belfast


Carwithen           ODTAA (One Damned Thing After Another) 

Bridge                 Oration (Concerto elegiaco) 

Brahms               Symphony No. 3 





Doreen Carwithen’s driving, joyous ODTAA, inspired by the John Masefield novel of the same name, will stand in stark contrast to Frank Bridge’s Oration (Concerto elegiaco). Oration is a gut-wrenching, heartfelt outpouring of grief for the destruction of World War I and Gabriel Schwabe’s recent recording received worldwide critical acclaim – it will be a huge thrill to hear him perform this under-appreciated work live. Brahms’s reflective Third Symphony completes this dramatic programme.
