The Ulster Orchestra LIVE

John Toal presents much-loved works by Grieg and Liszt, as well as the brooding first violin concerto by Sergei Prokofiev with the dynamic young Chinese soloist Ziyu He.

Kate Molleson hosts a week of live concerts from the BBC Orchestras – today’s concert is Live from Guildhall in Londonderry, where John Toal presents the Ulster Orchestra in much-loved works by Grieg and Liszt, as well as the brooding first violin concerto by Sergei Prokofiev with the dynamic young Chinese soloist Ziyu He
