Gala Concert with Sir James

Gala Concert with Sir James

Gala Concert: A Carnival of Rhythm! Sir James Galway performs with Conductor Rafael Payare and the Ulster Orchestra.

Friday, 22 September 2017 at 7:45pm

Venue: Belfast Waterfront Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Purchase tickets HERE.

The 2017/18 Ulster Orchestra Season has a special start as part of Culture Night Belfast, bringing an extravaganza of dance music from around the world. It celebrates music from both the Old and New World, in particular the Latin American rhythms that are part of the heritage of our Music Director, Rafael Payare. From the insistent rhythmic pulse of Ravel’s Bolero to the fiery flamenco in Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat, this programme is rich with the heat and light of Spain and Latin America.

Ulster Orchestra Artist Laureate Sir James Galway returns to perform music closer to home. Riverdance composer Bill Whelan’s flute concerto Linen and Lace was written for Sir James as soloist and is in Whelan’s trademark style, drawn from the rhythms of Irish dance.

And to open the concert, Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances. Orchestral re-workings of the music from West Side Story, these dances take us from the deserted street-music from the beginning of the musical to rumble and disaster at the story’s end.  The music races along in a flurry of jazz and dance rhythms from an epic percussion section, every type of syncopation in the book and even the vocal talents of the Orchestra’s musicians. Mambo!

Sir James Galway’s 40th Anniversary in Lucerne

Wolfgang Amadé Mozart (1756–1791) 
Symphony in A major, K. 201 (186a) 

Flute Concerto in D major, K. 314 (285d) 

Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) 
Suite from Pelléas and Mélisande, Op. 46 

Reunite with a legend: to mark the 40th anniversary of his Festival stage
debut, Sir James Galway, ”the man with the golden flute,” will play Mozart’s
D major Concerto, K. 314. The fact that its composer actually disdained the flute is impossible to tell from a single bar of this score. And if Mozart had known Galway, you can be sure he would have written more than two concertos for the instrument. Sir James enchants with his exquisite sound, immaculate technique, musical thoughtfulness, and spirited demeanor. To start the program, the Festival Strings will play another Mozart piece, the dazzling Symphony in A major, K. 201, which sets off veritable fireworks with its “Mannheim rocket” theme in the finale: audiences of the time found it so thrilling that they broke into applause. The second half will present a psychological drama from 1905: Jean Sibelius’s incidental music to Maurice Maeterlinck’s Pelléas et Mélisande – a Finnish alternative to the adaptations by Fauré, Debussy, and Schoenberg.

Special Offer: Bring Young Listeners to a Concert for Free
What could be lovelier than introducing young listeners to the enchanting world of classical music? When you buy a ticket for this concert, you will receive a free ticket allowing you to share the concert with a young guest. This offer is for children and youths up to and including 17 years of age – as long as tickets last. You may order your concert tickets by calling +41(0)41 226 44 80. We are available from Monday to Friday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
