Rustioni Conducts Opening Concert

Daniele Rustioni opens the Season with Elgar's glorious Cello Concerto! 

The Italian Institute of Culture is delighetd to support the unmissable opening to the 2019/20 Ulster Orchestra Season!

Elgar's Cello Concerto is elegaic and autumnal, written after the Great War and towards the end of the composer's career when Elgar felt he was passing out of relevance, and the piece's long solo passages convey that sense of solitude and even loneliness.

To perform it, we welcome back Johannes Moser to the Ulster Hall stage, a cellist whose recording of the Elgar Concerto earned an 'Editor's Choice' review from Gramophone Magazine, describing it as 'musically gripping' and 'likely to take your breath away'.

To partner the Elgar, Chief Conductor Daniele Rustioni leads the Ulster Orchestra in a performance of Saint-Saëns’s monumental Third Symphony. HIs final symphony, Saint-Saëns said 'I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished I will never achieve again.'

It's a remarkble work, full of invention and beautiful melody, which reaches its climax in the final movement's thundering chords, heard on the mighty Mulholland Organ. A concert to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end!
