Witness the Northern Lights come to life with the sounds of the Ulster Orchestra at the Ulster Hall, Belfast on 23 February 2024!
En Saga translates as ‘A Fairy Tale’, but this is not a Sibelius work inspired by the Finnish national epic poem, the Kalevala, this is a journey of the soul through a supernatural landscape, from melancholy, through rhythmic fireworks, to a tranquil end.
Rhythmic fireworks are also a characteristic of Estonian composer Eino Tamberg’s Trumpet Concerto and fans of Shostakovich will love its scurrying, jazz-influenced verve.
Beethoven’s uplifting Fourth Symphony provides a burst of musical sunshine to close the concert.
Sibelius: En Saga
Tamberg: Trumpet Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No. 4
