Dvořák Slavonic Dances
Sibelius Violin Concerto
Clara Schumann Three Romances for Violin
Dvořák Symphony No. 7
DANIELE RUSTIONI CONDUCTOR
FRANCESCA DEGO VIOLIN
The Ulster Orchestra is delighted to return to Coleraine for this exciting concert featuring our charismatic Music Director, Daniele Rustioni, along with his wife, acclaimed violinist, Francesca Dego!
On the face of things, this concert contrasts the fire of Dvořák's fast and furious Slavonic Dances and his Seventh Symphony (arguably his greatest), both of which are inspired by his Czech homeland, with the crystalline Finnish cool of Sibelius's Violin Concerto. But the works have more in common than you might think, as Dvořák's Seventh Symphony was a particular inspiration for Sibelius as he wrote his only concerto. Clara Schumann's Romances for Violin create a beautiful moment of intimacy and poignancy amidst this concert's dramatic peaks.
