Soloist: Holly Clark (trumpet)

We open our 2022-23 season in this Platinum Jubilee year with Malcolm Arnold’s scintillating suite from his official coronation ballet of 1953 – Homage to the Queen
The Trumpet Concerto in Ab Major by Armenian composer Alexander Arutiunian, another 1950s work, draws on an Eastern European sound world and was originally written for a Ukrainian trumpet virtuoso. Our soloist, Holly Clark is a scholar at the Royal Academy of Music. 
In the bicentennial of his birth, César Franck’s tone poem Le Chasseur Maudit (The Accursed Hunter) depicts the legendary Wild Hunt of central and northern Europe.
Sibelius’ first Symphony had its premiere in Helsinki in April 1899 then toured to the 1900 Paris Exposition at a time when Finnish nationalism was becoming ever more important. This is a fully formed first symphony containing the evocative melodies, unique textures and blend of romanticism and Finnish folk music that can only be Sibelius.

Seating is unreserved. 
All tickets include a free concert programme.
