Ulster Orchestra presents Music For Valentines at the Ulster Hall 14 February 2020, in a stunning performance with Chief Conductor Danielle alongside his talented wife & star violinist, Francesca in a beautiful Valentine's Day Concert.
Prokofiev was deeply inspired by Shakespeare, hence composing the score for the Romeo and Juliet ballet, which includes the beautiful Balcony Scene, signifying the star-crossed lovers' first meeting and the scene at Juliet's balcony. When Shostakovich began composing his First Violin Concerto in 1947, he was enjoying a period of relative calm. However, by the time it was finished in 1948, the situation had changed completely.
An exquisite way to spend your Valentine's Day
