Saturday concert - new programme

Sjelden klaverkonsert
  • Samuel Barber: Second Essay for Orchestra
  • Pjotr Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto no. 2 (new on programme)
  • Jean Sibelius: Symphony no 3 in C major

New programme. The first performance of the new trumpet concerto by Alfred Janson is unfortunately cancelled. The marvellous pianist Håvard Gimse is replacing Tine Thing Helseth with Tchaikovskys Piano Concerto no. 2 Barber and Sibelus stays om the programme, conducted by the young and gifted Alxander Prior. The serious tone language of Samuel Barber´s Second Essay is a clear contrast to one of Sibelius´ most light hearted and classical works: His 3rd Symphony.
