With the new concert season about to kick off, here is a trailer for a really interesting project scheduled for November in Umeå: Fredrik Högberg’s multimedia piano concerto. The composer made the news earlier in the year for dropping a flaming grand piano from a bridge into a frozen river…will be interesting to see what becomes of it all!
Rumon and the Ulster Orchestra will be giving three concerts in the Ulster Hall the week beginning 18th June 2012. The concerts are all being broadcast on BBC Radio 3, either live or for a later transmission. At the concert on the 21st there is a chance to hear the very rarely performed Suite No.1 by Edward MacDowell, 5 tone paintings on the subject of nature and the seasons.
Three different programmes, three different soloists, tickets are free and the details can be found here.
