Ranging from the famous Grieg Piano Concerto to a lesser known work of Sibelius, this concert featured a vast array of orchestral colour evoking the shimmering landscapes of the North.
After a slightly disjoined start, the RPO delivered an ultimately satisfying concert with distinctive and involing intepretations of two Romantic warhorses.
Epic Sibelius and velvety Grieg from Sakari Oramo and Javier Perianes, but Stravinsky that was too neat and careful.
The Toronto Symphony Orchestra offered a rich performance of works by Holst, Shostakovich, Grieg and Marquez. Conductor Robert Moody brought out the lyrical side of the orchestra, even if its members were nearly over-shadowed by an over-enthusiastic soloist.
Jac van Steen and the Ulster Orchestra attempt to entice new audiences to classical music, with mixed results.
