The Ulster Orchestra performs Chopin, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich

The Ulster Orchestra performs Anna Clyne’s The Midnight Hour, Ingrid Fliter joins them for Chopin's Piano Concerto No 2, and the afternoon ends with Shostakovich’s Symphony No 10.

Anna Clyne’s powerfully evocative “The Midnight Hour” starts off today’s concert from the Ulster Orchestra under Eivind Gullberg Jensen. It draws inspiration from two poems “La musica” by Juan Ramón Jiménez and Harmonie du soir by Charles Baudelaire. Ingrid Fliter joins them for the ever-popular 2nd Piano Concerto by Chopin. Rafael Payare rounds off the afternoon with Shostakovich’s mighty 10th Symphony.
