About

Saturday 25th June | 2022 | 7.30pm - 9.30pm
Southwell Minster
£5 - £20

Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra returns to Southwell Minster on Saturday 25th June at 7.30pm with an exciting concert of music including Shostakovich's 5th Symphony.

This symphony was written during the time of Stalin's 'terror' when even musician's lives were in danger, but this music was a huge success, after Shostakovich had withheld his previous symphony. It is considered that Shostakovich hid his true feelings in the music which is a powerful and moving work.

We open the concert with a one-movement tone poem by Jennifer Higdon, an American composer who wrote Blue Cathedral in response to her brother's death. It an uplifting piece of music and has proved her most popular work, premiered in 2000.

Ben Goldscheider, a BBC Young Musician finalist in 1996 joins us for Glière's Horn Concerto. Glière was born in Kyiv, Ukraine, attended the Moscow Conservatoire, and taught Prokofiev at one time, but is little known here as he never travelled in Europe. Ben is an acclaimed horn player who performs both as a soloist and chamber musician and we look forward to welcoming him back to perform with our orchestra.
