Conductor Roberto González-Monjas brings this special Thursday evening performance as part of the Belfast Festival, offering one of the most delightful and well-known classical programmes this Ulster Orchestra season.
Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Overture is a magical fantasy piece, based on Shakespeare’s famous tragedy. One of the composer’s best-loved works, this beautiful piece is now one of the most recognisable romantic melodies in the world. The ever-popular and emotive Concierto de Aranjuez is brought to life by guest guitarist Rafael Aguirre Miñarro. Many people’s first encounter with this beautiful Spanish piece may have been linked to the 1996 film Brassed Off!
A Classic FM playlist favourite, Pictures at an Exhibition was inspired by a visit to an art exhibition, with each of the movements representing one of the drawings or artworks on display.
