Classical Music 5/3/10

Elizabeth Watts

Ulster Orchestra,Ulster Hall, Belfast

Friday, March 5, 7.45pm

Tonight’s Ulster Orchestra concert brings the young Scottish conductor Garry Walker to the podium. The concert’s centrepiece is Les Illuminations by Benjamin Britten — a real tour de force for the beautiful voice of award-winning soprano Elizabeth Watts (pictured) and the Ulster Orchestra’s strings. Elizabeth is best known for winning the song prize in the BBC’s Cardiff Singer of the World a few years ago.

Other works in tonight’s programme are Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, and Dvorák’s sunny Sixth symphony.

If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
