Beethoven Piano Concerto No 4

Sibelius Symphony No 1

Symphony Hall is thrilled to welcome the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine as part of its biggest UK tour to date. One of the most distinguished European orchestras, it’s achieved world-wide recognition through its many international tours, which include Australia, the US, Europe and Asia. This visit is particularly important, following the tragic invasion of Ukraine by Russia and ongoing war and, with hostilities expected to continue for some time, it’s vital that we continue to support the rich, musical culture of Ukraine.

Music Director Volodymyr Sirenko is joined by pianist Antonii Baryshevskyi, a prize-winner at the Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master and F Busoni International Piano Competitions. He’ll play Beethoven’s magnificent Fourth Piano Concerto, widely regarded as one of the greatest in the repertoire, and expressing a huge range of mood from deep introspection to joyful exuberance. Bookending the concerto are Boris Lyatosynsky’s symphonic poem, Grazhyna, an appealing example of this leading Ukrainian composer’s dramatic music, and Sibelius’s First Symphony. Expansive and lyrical, it’s the most overtly romantic of the Finnish composer’s work, and has long been an audience favourite everywhere.
