Sibelius’ Violin Concerto
Conductor: Tito Muñoz
Violin: Francesca Dego
Ida Moberg Sunrise Orchestral Suite: Sunrise
Sibelius: Violin Concerto
Grieg Lyric Pieces: Wedding Day at Troldhaugen
Shostakovich: Symphony No.9
“I need the sound of the trampling of steel-shod boots”, Shostakovich told the first performers of his Ninth Symphony – but this audacious, irreverent mini-masterpiece certainly wasn’t the victory march that the Soviet authorities were expecting at the end of the Second World War. Great music never plays by the rules, and this is a concert full of wonderful surprises. Dynamic conductor, Tito Muñoz, joins superstar violinist Francesca Dego in a song of fire and ice: Sibelius’ windswept, wildly romantic Violin Concerto.
The Hull City Hall holds numerous and varied events ranging from the Classics Orchestral Concert series to pop concerts, comedy, conferences, exhibitions and degree ceremonies.
