National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine at Cadogan Hall

19 October, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

231019-zios-ukraine

Join us for the concert by National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine (NSOU) at the Cadogan Hall. The orchestra has long been one of the most distinguished European orchestras, achieving worldwide recognition through its many international tours in Europe, Australia, the US and Asia.

We will meet for pre-concert drinks at the Botanist on Sloane Square from 6.30 pm (on your own tap), walk 5 min to Cadogan Hall for the concert at 7.30pm.

NSOU returns to the UK for the first time in over 20 years, with a rich programme of music by Richard Strauss, Bruch, Sibelius, and Ukrainian composer Borys Lyatoshynsky.

Richard Strauss is most well-known for his collection of great tone poems, of which Don Juan is perhaps the most exuberant and best loved by concert audiences.

Bruch belongs to a small group of composers who are known for the Violin Concerto in G minor, which is loved by worldwide audiences for its poetic beauty, deeply moving melodies and elegant musicality.

Sibelius wrote his patriotic Finlandia in response to the war in his beloved country. It is therefore understandable that Ukrainian musicians identify with this work of resolute defiance.

Boris Lyatoshynsky is regarded as the father of Ukrainian contemporary music. His Second Symphony is a particularly fine work and in its dramatic accessibility is a major statement of Ukrainian national solidarity.
