‹ Back to What's On Orchestra of Opera North: Nature and Spirit

30 Mar - 1 Apr 2017

Part of Kirklees Concert Season 2016-17
(Huddersfield Town Hall only)

Aleksandar Markovic, Conductor
Jack Liebeck, Violin

Aleksandar Markovic returns to close the Kirklees Concert Season with an epic concert showcasing music at its most descriptive to paint landscapes of three different countries.

From the woodlands of Finland and the realm of Tapiola, we travel across the water for Bruch’s evocative Scottish Fantasy. With its roots firmly embedded in folk music the heritage of the work is clear and Jack Liebeck, who recently recorded all Bruch’s violin works for Hyperion, is the perfect person to return to Huddersfield to bring the music to life.

Strauss’ tone poem Eine Alpensinfonie begins at daybreak in the mountains and we can vividly imagine the crevasses and rock formations as we trek ever upwards towards the summit. The contrast between the outward vistas and the inner reflection of the climber is poignantly juggled throughout this monumental work.
