Ulster Orchestra presents: Variations on a Roccoco Theme – On Your Doorstep series
Elim Chan Conductor
Alexey Stadler Cello
Andrea Tarrodi Camelopardalis
Tchaikovsky Variations on a Roccoco Theme
Bruch Kol Nidrei
Mendelssohn Symphony No.3 Scottish
This concert features not one, but two delightful pieces for rising star cellist, Alexey Stadler, making his debut with the Ulster Orchestra. The Rococo Variations reflect Tchaikovsky’s adoration of the music of Mozart, a composer he revered above all, and they present a dazzling package of virtuoso cello-writing. Bruch’s warm and richly evocative Kol Nidrei was written for Liverpool’s Jewish community when Bruch was Principal Conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic, and is based on two traditional Hebrew melodies.
Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony, the Scottish, was inspired by his holidays in the British Isles and is full of Highland flavour, with swinging melodies and even a hint of a typical thunderstorm!
