Ulster Orchestra presents their Opening Concert with talented Music Director, Daniele Rustioni at the Ulster Hall, Belfast on 23 September 2022.
As a single horn sounds a fanfare that calls together the musicians of the orchestra, come along to the opening of the 2022/23 Ulster Orchestra Season in the company of Music Director Daniele Rustioni and phenomenal pianist, Stephen Hough.
Lose yourself in the tempestuous drama of Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto, with all of Stephen Hough’s dazzling virtuosity and warmth, and meet Richard Strauss’s ‘hero’ in a musical narration of A Hero’s Life (Ein Heldenleben).
Through depictions of the protagonist’s moods, enemies and his beloved companion, Strauss paints a kaleidoscopic picture of the trials, tribulations and triumphs of life. This fascinating depiction of humanity is a welcome start to our new Season!
