Listen along to the heartfelt sounds of Britain And Brahms by the Ulster Orchestra at the iconic Ulster Hall, Belfast on 12 January 2024.
Doreen Carwithen’s driving, joyous ODTAA, inspired by the John Masefield novel of the same name, will stand in stark contrast to Frank Bridge’s Oration (Concerto elegiaco). Oration is a gut-wrenching, heartfelt outpouring of grief for the destruction of World War I and Gabriel Schwabe’s recent recording received worldwide critical acclaim – it will be a huge thrill to hear him perform this under-appreciated work live.
Brahms’s reflective Third Symphony completes this dramatic programme.
Carwithen: ODTAA (One Damned Thing After Another)
Bridge: Oration (Concerto elegiaco)
Brahms: Symphony No. 3
