Beethoven's Violin Concerto is the first giant of the genre and it is only fitting that it forms part of a season devoted to the Great Concertos. In this rescheduled concert, Sergey Khachatryan returns to the Ulster Hall with Ulster Orchestra to perform the piece. Renowned as one of the great modern interpreters of the Concerto, this concert will be a spell-binding night of utter virtuosity.

"For all his youth, Khachatryan certainly has deep experience... His sound is both sturdy and beautiful, and he paces and phrases everything with intelligent eloquence, always allowing the music to breathe and voicing the counterpoints lucidly. Most impressive, though, is the emotional and spiritual depth he shows." (The Sunday Times)

To close the concert, Music Director Rafael Payare continues his exploration of Brahms's Symphonies with the richly romantic Third.

Programme:

Brahms: Symphony No.3
Beethoven: Violin Concerto

Conductor: Rafael Payare
Violin: Sergey Khachatryan
