Inspired intertwining of traditions

Two musical traditions meet in a world premiere and a Kirklees Concert Season first, at the centre of a spectacular programme taking its inspiration from beyond Western Europe.

An unrelenting whirlwind, Erkin’s Köçekçe Suite fuses Turkish folk traditions with western symphonic music.

Composed and performed by the award-winning sitarist Jasdeep Singh Degun, Arya is an exciting new concerto. Simmering with grandeur and emotionally charged music, the melody moves from the sitar around the orchestra in gorgeous sweeps of sound.

Sibelius’ joyful Karelia and mysterious Swan of Tuonela are steeped in Finnish folklore and atmosphere. His final symphony, filled with majestic beauty, is a favourite for many and closes the concert.

Part of the Kirklees Orchestral Concert Season 2019/2020. This event is part of the subscription package. Download your form or call Box Office to become a subscriber.
